“If the President decides that he wants a secretary to the government who is going to work with him, coordinate the activities of his government, who will give him advise, obviously that man should be able to have unfettered access to the President.

“He is supposed to be able to give advice to the president because he is with the president on a daily basis in a manner that others might not have,” he added.

Mrs Buhari had made her comments during an interview with BBC adding that she would not support her husband in 2019 if the situation remained unchanged.
