Aisha Buhari, Nigeria’s first lady, is again in the news, this time for a cryptic message she posted on her Instagram page.
Mrs. Buhari, who is known for using social media to criticise and draw attention to issues that concern her, shared a video of Nigeria’s Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, crying during one of his recent sermons, along with an intriguing caption.
“A chire tsoro a yi abinda ya dace,” she captioned the video on her verified Instagram page (Be courageous to do the right thing).
When the minister asked the reciter to read a verse about Allah’s fear, Mr Pantami and his reciter burst into tears in the short video.
Pantami gets emotional during his exegesis sessions, particularly when reciting verses from the Holy Qur’an or explaining the persecution of Muslims.
However, it is unclear why the president’s wife posted the video, which is currently trending on social media. Pantami joined her son, Yusuf, and Zahra Bayero at Kano’s Bichi Central mosque three weeks before she posted the video.
