    The wife with her bushy armpit looks like a witch doctor. If PMB has his way he may equally do the same. Watch out in 2019.

    Seeing this from another angle. Is this a family affair? Someone should advice the oga madam to plait that hair under her armpit.

    She kinda look like Trans woman with that huge hair under the armpit. Well it doesn’t really matter who runs the country, what matters is if their government system supports it and they run it well.

    There is no much difference with Nigeria where the president put his relatives in key positions and you ppl are saying nothing and yet you say it can’t happen in Nigeria.

    A running mate is expected to be a capable and trusted person to the candidate and who can be better trusted if not one’s spouse.? Already, they appear to complement each other very well, at least in the area of communication. The man is camera shy and the wife is camera friendly. Whatever they decide in camera, the madam will announce on camera. QED!!!!
    It is not his fault he loves his wife ja re, You haters learn from him and follow Suit.

    I do not know how their country is polarised, but in a place like Nigeria, it is surely not a good strategy. Is the nation a family affair?
