Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, set Twitter on fire with her comment that the Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose is a ‘mad dog that isn’t chained’.

The tweet in her verified account @AishaMBuhari had gotten hundreds of retweets but it was later deleted, following adverse comments that she should not have descended to Fayose’s level with her choice of words.

“Enough is Enough Fayose. A mad dog that isn’t chained. I refuse to keep quiet,” the President’s wife posted on her verified Twitter handle.

“If Buhari is 73 years old, I Aisha am 45 years old. I have more than enough energy to face you”.

The two tweets have now disappeared from her account.

Aisha had rebuked Fayose for linking her with Halliburton scandal and a former US House of Reps member, William Jefferson.

It all started after the EFCC blocked Fayose’s private account at Zenith Bank.

In an off-target reaction, Fayose alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari and his family members are not saints after all.

” Even the President cannot claim to be an angel. The estate he built in Abuja is known to us. His wife was indicted over the Halliburton Scandal. When that American, Jefferson, was being sentenced, the President’s wife was mentioned as having wired $170,000 to Jefferson. Her name was on page 25 of the sentencing of Jefferson. We can serialize the judgment for people to see and read,” Fayose’s press secretary, Idowu Adelusi said.

In an earlier reaction, Nigeria’s Presidency dismissed as “laughable” the attempt by Gov. Ayo Fayose of Ekiti to link President Buhari’s wife, Aisha, to US Congressman William Jefferson’s bribery scandal for which the American lawmaker was convicted in 2009.
