HURIWA Attacks Aisha Buhari, Governors' Wives Over Dubai Birthday Party

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has attacked Nigeria's First Lady, Aisha Buhari, and the wives of some state governors for attending Aisha's birthday party rather than fighting for provisions for women in the constitution review.

The association kicked against the refusal of the ninth National Assembly for not admitting pro-women bills in the ongoing amendments to the 1999 constitution.

In a statement signed by the association's National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA attacked the National Assembly for voting against the four-gender-related bills.

HURIWA said the bills were not as important as the birthday party to the First Lady and the Governors' wives who chose to have a birthday party in Dubai over focusing on the pro-women bills.

“It is unfortunate that the Ninth Assembly has insisted that it won’t pass the pro-women provisions that would have been included in the yet-to-be amended constitution,” HURIWA said.

"Nigeria must learn from neighbouring Liberia which produced Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as President for 12 unbroken years. Nigeria must learn from Tanzania which currently has Samia Suluhu Hassan as President.”

“HURIWA calls for a repeat of the vote because the last vote was done like a secret cult.

“The President’s wife, Aisha Buhari; the Vice-President’s wife, Dolapo Osinbajo; as well as the wives of the 36 state governors now that they must have returned from their birthday ceremony in Dubai, must be vocal at this time to press home their demands. Failure to do this is a betrayal to womanhood.”
