The Kwara State branch of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that there is truly a cabal in President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

The claim was earlier made by Senate President, Bukola Saraki who said that some powerful people were controlling Buhari.

The Kwara APC’s comments are contained in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Sulyman Buhari on Tuesday, June 28, 2016.

It reads:

The statement by Mr. Femi Adesina on behalf of Mr. President is not only unpresidential, it also failed to convincingly dismiss the widely held view of Nigerians that, indeed, there is a government within the government of Mr. President.

It is instructive to note that the Senate President is not the first Nigerian to express such observations.

The Senate President, through the press statement he personally signed, only called the attention of Mr. President to the danger ahead if the ugly situation is permitted to fester.

In fact, the statement by Mr. Adesina is the clearest indication that a government exists within the government of Mr. President. The President that we know, the President that we have worked with, the President that we have worked for, the President that we voted for, would not have directed his media adviser to issue such an un-presidential statement. That statement is a confirmation of the Senate President’s observation.

The intention of people like Adesina in the Villa is to create a discord between Mr. President and the Senate President, but that will never happen. It is the same cabal that embarrassed Mr. President himself by padding the 2016 national budget, including the budget of Aso Rock, to the extent of inflating some figures in the Villa expenditures.

It is the same cabal that has made it nearly impossible for many ministers and Special Advisers to have access to Mr. President. The Presidency should be reminded that a cabal hijacked and destroyed the government of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
