Bola Shagaya denies planning to host Aishat Buhari

Bola Shagaya

An aide to Bola Shagaya has described as untrue, reports that the millionaire was planning a party for Aishat Buhari, the wife of Nigeria’s president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.

Ms. Shagaya, an ally of the outgoing First Lady, Patience Jonathan, was criticised on social media for allegedly being a turncoat and planning to curry patronage by fraternising with the wife of the president-elect.

A tweet by the UK chapter of the All Progressives Congress about the alleged planned event also helped popularise the message.

“BREAKING] Bola Shagaya to HOST Aisha Buhari to lavish dinner | WE CALL ON OUR INCOMING 1ST LADY TO DECLINE THIS INVITATION. @IamAishaBuhari” @APCUkingdom tweeted at 7:49 p.m. on April 2.

In her denial statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES, Ms. Shagaya’s aide, Deji Adeyanju, accused the London chapter of the APC of mischief. He said Ms. Shagaya remains a close friend of Mrs. Jonathan and will continue to offer her invaluable contribution to the nation and always.

“While we hold Mrs. Buhari in high esteem and commend the victory of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari at the poll, we wish to make it categorically clear for the records that this story is totally untrue & a fabrication. Hajia Bola Shagaya has no such plans or has she ever told anyone of such a plan to host Mrs. Buhari. It is purely mischief aimed at misleading Nigerians and disparaging her good name,” the aide said.

“This rumour making the rounds on cyberspace has no iota of truth whatsoever and Hajia Bola Shagaya wishes to draw the attention of Nigerians to this. Hajia Bola Shagaya remains a very close confidant and friend of our amiable First Lady Dr. Dame Patience Jonathan and will continue to offer her invaluable contribution to the nation and always.”

Ms. Shagaya also commended President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding victory to Mr. Buhari at the polls and described his action as heroic.

“We are also very proud of the heroic act of President Goodluck Jonathan making a great sacrifice to keep the peace of this nation,” her aide said.

      Haha

  • Haruna Suleiman

    These people certainly don’t know who Buhari is. This man is too serious to condone such pettiness & cannot be identified with such frivolities as to attending parties (or his wife) with shenanigans like Bola Shagaya a and her likes or other known crooks whose job is gallivanting the corridors of power. Buhari & his family can never associate with such characters. So people that have this habit running after Any Government In Power better forget it. This new government has no place for their likes.

  • Ken

    Africans and their psychotic need to add frivolous titles to their names! When did Patience Jonathan become “Dr”? Whether honorary or earned I think it’s just plain ridiculous for Nigerians to always want to show off titles that they cannot even back up with their mental or humanitarian capacities. In the west where these titles actually carry weights, you hardly find the bearers attaching such to their names. Rubbish.

    • Africa

      Funny bunch! So many Drs. in a party without substance…

  • Abiodun Jejelola

    One of the problems with some of us that comments on social media forum like this, is that we somehow think that , one can’t make it in business except you are fraudulent.That is a childish way of thinking.

    That’s why as a saying goes, ‘Found out the truth properly and hold on to what is true’! I think, I must have read it a couple of hours ago, on this platform when somebody said something like,’ In sane climate or whatever’

    Well, there are women in Nigeria that are worth their salt as far as business is concerned, and they know themselves! Interestingly, some of them got into business very early, and has since stayed put in whatever business ventures that they’ve set their hands upon- and it has paid them greatly.

    So please, if you don’t know what to talk about, simply don’t comment. In fact hardly would any of our Nigerian foremost business women in Nigeria not know who President -elect Buhari’s wife, Mrs Aishat Buhari is, and rightly Ms Bola Shagaya has congratulated them accordingly as she considers it necessary for this 2015 Presidential election victory!

    However, one must be very watchful about rumours and lies, that may be going about on some of these social media platforms! Therefore, a refutal of this type, from Ms Bola Shagaya through her Aide, Deji Adeyanju is necessary, as she has denied any of such plan to host Mrs Aishat Buhari- the wife of the President elect, Muhammadu Buhari, and that should settle it! Happy Easter celebrations to you all!

    • Rommel

      There are also sycophants everywhere especially during the Jonathan administration,I would like to know when the said lady and Patience Jonathan became friends,was their friendship dating back to when Mrs Jonathan was still selling fake ice cream as confirmed by their erstwhile houseboy? according to the boy,Patience was then called mama ice cream while her husband was simply Oga joe,did she know this lady then? did they attend school together or what? I think you should understand the situation,evil character corrupts good ones and Nigerians want to protect this hard earned liberty.

      • aisha ani

        Ms Shagaya is a “social climber on the rise”, always wants to be seen with the people in power.

    • Moe

      I sincerely think you, sir or madam, are embellishing.
      ‘Found out the truth properly and hold on to what is true’ strikes me not as a saying, but as what
      a drunken individual would say as he is being kicked out of a bar.
      There is NO saying like that…never been,….Never would!

      With regards to the other parts of your run-off statement, ….aaahhh OK! (I don’t know what you are talking about)
      but good talk regardless, Keep it up!

    I have never met nor wished to meet either Aishat or this Bola Shagaya. I have to hurriedly add there is no need to anyway! All I know is that the latter has over the years, garnered a reputation of seeming to hang around wives of past heads of states, just like her male counterpart, Jerry Gana is, to Politicians. I am not sure if she or they are the ones that sought out this relationship. Based on the working principles of GEJ and Buhari, it will be travesty of sorts for Aishat to start consorting with the new head of State’s wife. I sense something innately unedifying and perhaps even corrupting with such a relationship, if the story is true. I am glad this has been denied. Time will tel how this pans put! Aishat should keep her old friends and seek ones that will add decency and integrity to the unofficial position of “first lady”

  • Moe

    Firstly, Aishatu Buhari will not bastardize the ROLE of first lady as Patience Jonathan did. So rub shoulders, knees, or ankles with whoever you want, our first lady to-be will not be part of it (if it does not concern the welfare of Nigerian women and children)
    She is not the crude, uneducated, vulgar, and ‘national-disgrace-in-a-can’ that Patience Jonathan is.

    Whoever Bola Shagaya is can unruffle her pants!. Aishatu Buhari has absolutely no interest in whatever she has to say or offer if it is not about genuine friendship and concern for our less privileged brothers and sisters.

    • Okey

      There won’t even be the role of First Lady since APC insists it is not in the Constitution (ask Fashola & co.). So, since they won’t have an illegal office, the question of abuse is ludicrous.

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      We don’t want unconstitutional office. Office of 1st lady is unconstitutional

  • Onike24

    This woman has been a ” friend” to every First Lady since Miriam Babaginda through to mama peace! Haba, the same people have perfected the art of flattery; they are dangerous and should be avoided especially Muniyatu aka Bola Shagaya.

  • True Nigerian

    Bola Shagaya. Who is she by the way? Millionaire! And so what? I hope Buhari brings down all the terrible criminal influences in this country.

    What great sacrifice did Jonathan make, biko? The mentality in this country is in the pits. Jonathan lost woefully, and had to go. Pure and simple. He did not concede because he wanted to. He conceded because the world powers were waiting to have him, should he cause violence in Nigeria. What is the sacrifice in rigging mindlessly in Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Imo, Enugu, etc? Jonathan conceded because he realised that the game was over. He postponed election, suggestively threatened Jega with a sack; tried to intimidate INEC; used Niger Delta militants and OPC to make veiled threats to the Nigerian people and the opposition; deployed the army to elections, contrary to 3 judgements that prohibited such action.

    Yet, some n*twits now call him a democracy hero and suggest that he made a great sacrifice. You can say that to the marines!

  • Dazmillion

    Buhari is usually very vicious with this kind of women. Bola will not be seeing Aso villa for a long while.

  • kunle

    i really can’t understand all these noise about heroics of jonathan…………. so he was not supposed to loose …. EH ?

    • TC.TAMBURAWA

      Just leave them by the time he is called by the criminal court in Hauge over the death of over 15,000 Nigerians you will know who he is. The case is now before Hauge he will by Gods Grace held accountable for atrocities committed against humanity. All these idiots that a praising him will cry with him very soon .idiots

  • Bunduma Mohammed

    Bola Shagaya and are criminal likes should know that Nigerians are tired of recycling criminals. We are now ready to defend our hard earned democracy

  • Majek tunde

    Point of correction. GEJ had no choice.He had tried all he could to remain in power.Orubebe’s display at the conference centre was plan B which failed.There is nothing that can ever make Jonathan a statesman.

  • Majek tunde

    Of all our presidents, GMB is the only one who has fought for the presidency. Awolowo tried but never got it.Shagari, OBJ and Jonathan had it thrown on their laps.Nigeria needs an upright leader and thank God we have Buhari.Just continue to pray for him and those he will choose to work with him

    • Papashango77

      Very correct sir!

  • Funmi Ajayi

    This same woman was one of Mrs. Yar Adua’s best friends, one of Mrs. Babangida’s friends, one of Mrs. Jonathan’s best friends and now …

    These are people that are in the same boat as Nigeria’s elected politicians.

  • Papashango77

    Say no to those who think they can buy government. Buhari is a wise person so i have no fear!

  • Abiodun Jejelola

    In every nation, and also in every discipline, men and women have their class of friends. And so the circle or group that you associate with or you mingle with is a product of who you are. Why is that? It is because you can only attract your type of person. Interestingly, this does not simply happen, as it depends on all types of indices.

    That is why the Word says: He that walks with the wise shall be wise. And if you mingle with scoffers then that is what you‘ll get, because water will always finds its level.

    Also, if for instance, say you an ‘Owambe addict’, that is the type of characters you are likely to associate and keep company with, apart from perhaps your official duties and responsibilities! And if you are like those that love to sha ‘Taffe’, or drink i.e. Ogogoro, you can bet it that they are in every part of the world, and you will get them plenty. So what is the
    jealousy about.

    The problem is that some of us, don’t know what we are talking about, and hence when we read or hear about those that that did well in business, we tends to sometimes think that something is not in place somewhere. Yet, some that some of celebrates are perhaps not in fact in their league!.

    Please, understand that, even in the realm of the Clergy, sometimes loneliness may set in, and you must never forget that they that are in that realm, particularly in the front line, like any other, also craves for true friendship, not to talk about others! Therefore he that must have friends must show himself friendly.

    Some of us are angry unnecessarily about others, because we don’t really know them. And whether you know it or not, except there is true and genuine fellowship, you can’t really know a person.

    Even God Almighty, the creator of the Heaven and earth craves for friendship and fellowship! And He will never confide in you except you are truly and genuinely in fellowship with Him. So why don’t you we simply only on what we know instead of castigation. Therefore , please leave one of our Nigerian business mogul alone!

    Also, that saying, about ‘Discovering the truth’ goes like this in Yoruba! ‘Ewa Idi Ohun gbogbo dajudaju, ki edi eyiti ose otito mu! In other words, investigate everything properly and hold on to that which is true! That should be the norm in
    every realm of life.

    What that connote is that, there is no business where there is no auditing in one form or another! So also if you are really passionate about knowledge, the onus rests on you to commit yourself to research upon research and in the process you ’ll encounter what you set out for! Is that not something worthy of acceptance! It is, because it is based on the infallibility of the righteousness that upholds and prospers nations!

    Nigeria is a secular country, and in fact you can be successful without fraud, if you commit yourself well enough to your work as you ought to and also stay put in it until it delivers! Happy Easter celebrations!

    Ese waa funn,

    Awon Eiye,

    Ma ko minu, Ma Ko minu

    Oluwa yio pe’ se!

    Ese waa funn

    Awon Eiye

    Ma Kominu, ma Kominu

    Oluwa yio pe’ se,
    Amin

    That song is a rhema for somebody, somewhere, and therefore, it is to whom it may concern! It means, simply,
    look unto God Almighty, and continue to trust Him and He will provide! If He, the LORD can meet the needs of birds, then don’t worry, He will certainly meet your needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus!

    So also, because Jesus resurrected, this song in the Yoruba Hymn is worthy of acceptance!

    Jesu ye titi aye

    Eru Iku ko bami mo

    Jesu ye nitori mi

    Isa Oku Ko nipa, Aleluya!

    Amin

    That has to do with, Revelation: 1:18 He said to John at the Island of Patmos, as he talked to him,

    I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold I am alive forever! You may like to read it from verse: 1

    My prayer is that, may this, be a blessing to someone, somewhere! Hallelujah! Happy Easter Celebrations!
