'Be courageous to do the right thing' - Aisha Buhari to Pantami

Aisha Buhari Aisha Buhari

First Lady, Aisha Buhari has advised Ali Isa Pantami, the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, to be courageous to do the right thing.

This comes after what seemed like a break from attacking her husband or his appointees online.

The First Lady shared a video showing Pantami shedding tears during one of his sermons.

Pantami burst into tears after his reciter read a verse of the Holy Quran.

“That is the Garden we shall give as their own to those of Our servants who were devout,” read the reciter from Surah Maryam, Verse 63.

In response, Pantami sobbed, “O Allah! Make me one of them. O Allah! Make me one of them!”

The First Lady, who posted the video, attached a short Hausa sentence to it. “A chire tsoro a yi abinda ya dace”, which can be interpreted as “Be courageous to do the right thing”.
