Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari has condemned the sale of interest forms which would enable Nigerian women participate in a free loan scheme she is championing.

She said that the interest forms were supposed to be freely obtained from the Ministry of Women Affairs, but reports say they are being sold for between N1,500 and N5,000, using her name.

President Buhari’s wife, in a statement issued by her media aide, Adebisi Ajayi, said that selling the interest forms “defeats the purpose of the programme which is mainly to assist women, especially those at the grass roots.”

She called on those involved in the act to “desist from sabotaging the programme and allow the Nigerian women to feel the change mantra.”
