President Muhammadu Buhari has responded to criticism from his wife by saying she belongs in his kitchen, according to a BBC report.
On a visit to Germany, he said: “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.”
Mr Buhari was standing next to Chancellor Angela Merkel, who reportedly glared at him.
Aisha Buhari had said she might not back her husband at the next election unless he got a grip on his government.
Responding to questions by reporters, Mr Buhari said that having run for president three times and having succeeded at the fourth attempt, he could “claim superior knowledge over her”.
