Wife of Singapore’s PM, Ho Ching carrying a blue, dinosaur-printed pouch priced at just $11 (N3,500)
According to the BBC, the wife of Singapore’s PM, Ho Ching on a state visit to the White House has stolen the limelight by carrying a blue, dinosaur-printed pouch priced at just $11 (N3,500). The pouch was designed by a Singaporean student at Pathlight, the country’s first autism-focused school.
PM Lee Hsien Loong and Ms Ho have been in Washington since Monday. She was seen carrying the pouch at the arrival ceremony at the White House South Lawn, where President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama officially welcomed Mr Lee and Ms Ho to the US.
However, it was not the same case for the wife of the Nigerian president, Aisha Buhari who was pictured arriving the country with a Hermes Birkin 35cm Porosus Crocodile Gold Hardware Bag worth $105, 000 (N40, 950, 000) at $1 to N390 conversion rate.
The information caused social media outcry by Nigerians who condemned the president’s wife as living a life of luxury while Nigerians suffer.
