President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said his wife’s place belonged to his kitchen and that he did not know which party she belongs to.

The comment by the President was made during a press conference in Berlin, Germany on Friday.
Shehu said the ‘President respects the place of women in our society. and believes in the abilities of women.
“My friends, can’t a leader get a sense humour anymore? Mr. President laughed before that statement was made. He was obviously throwing a banter.”
“The President respects the place of women in our society. He believes in the abilities of women.”
