Buhari and #kitchengate and two other stories that made our jaws drop this week

The office of the First Lady of Nigeria is in the kitchen and ‘The Other Room’

During a Berlin news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, not even on NTA so at least our shame will be hidden, President Buhari helped us finally put an end to the great Nigerian ‘debate’ as to where or not a woman’s place is in the kitchen. Responding to a question on his wife criticism of him, the President commented “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room“.

Although the First Lady holds a Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration, and a master’s degree in International Affairs and Strategic Studies obviously by virtue of the President’s statement, the First Lady of the country, being a woman and a wife, is incapable of playing any other roles other than those required of her in the kitchen and ‘the other room’.

Just in case you thought his first statement was nothing but a tasteless joke, the President went on to ‘clarify’ his statements, in this video which was also put up by the official APC twitter account, and subsequently deleted presumably after they realized that the President admitting that his wife’s ‘function’ is to look after him, probably wasn’t the best line of defense for them.


A tale of pepper-soup and police wahala

A couple of days ago Twitter user @MsNemah in a series of tweets, shared with us the hilarious tale of how sharing some pepper-soup, with her white roommate ended up with her entering police wahala like play play. They even seized her spices, and carried it to the lab to test because apparently Oyibo people don’t know what pepper looks like. Checkout the tweets below to get the full gist.

As we enter a new week, may your Jollof be sweet, and the meat on top plenty.
