But unfortunately for the grandpa president, his message was lost in translation; wrongly understood by a world on a trigger-ready alert, eager to take on anyone who simply suggests the tiniest differences between the sexes; and in a new world order that is trying to do away with gender and would instead refer to people as persons. A genderless society where everyone is blended as generic person, period.
Does the fact that these agreements apply to some couples now make it a universal application such that any person not amenable to them will be chastised? If not, why then not let the Buharis be in peace and leave them alone to manage their marriage as they see fit and determine proper and in their best interest. Why single Buhari out because of what he said and lampoon him as if he put every woman under his template and forced them all to belong to the kitchen.
Icheoku maintains that what Buhari said was his personal opinion as applies only to his own wife, regarding their expectations and understanding of their marital relationship. It is therefore not anyone's business to interject themselves in another man's personal life situation. Aisha can speak for herself and Aisha is not complaining nor yet complained of being offended by what her husband said. Good enough too, Aisha has so far exhibited the maturity expected of a president's wife and has not run amok whining or bitching about what was said concerning where she belongs in her husbands life. She has maintained calm and great equanimity, with a very beautiful smile and carriage befitting a princess and a president's wife and for this Icheoku commends her. She has by her calm amidst the needless storm unarmed those meddlesome interlopers spoiling for a kill, who thought to goad her into taking the bait of needless controversy of supposed wife's subjugation; a storm merely generated to scorn Buhari and pitch him as too archaic and out fashioned. The supposedly hurt woman has not complained, is not complaining and until she does, everyone is wasting his or her time being more catholic than the pope and crying more than the bereaved.
These supposed defenders of women's rights should sheathe their swords and wait until Buhari makes his position a universal application before they start marching in protest demanding for his head. To date President Muhammadu Buhari has not issued the fatwa nor passed the decree generalizing his position and Aisha Buhari is still just smiling and has not complained. At least she belongs somewhere, afterall so many women are begging to belong somewhere even it means just being let in under the roof. It is also instructive that many people marry for just companionship; some for children; some for financial support and upkeep; while many others marry for all manner of reasons including many bothering on the mundane. Icheoku says so choose you today what you are marrying for or if already married, why you got married; but please leave other married people alone and in whatever their reason and whatever works for them. As for Icheoku, the only reason that makes sense why any person should marry is companionship, without which parties have no business saying 'I do' to one another. Companionship of each other is the key and the sole principal reason to ever settle on any particular individual; as other things are more easily obtainable as spread out through majority of human beings and one might as well get anybody for them. Icheoku says in the matter of Aisha and Buhari, the whole world should butt out and keep off; just mind your own business.
