"I am not afraid of anybody. I’m saying the truth".
3. People around Buhari are lying to him
According to Maina, the president is surrounded by all sorts of lying creatures.
"Thank God our president stands for the truth. The unfortunate thing is that some people around him who he has given trust, are lying to him. This one I can attest to. I can give you instances, I can give you documentary evidences.

6. Maina just wants an opportunity to meet Buhari
"I'm appealing to you Mr. President, there are many things people are not telling you. When I get to that public hearing, I’d tell you some things that nobody ever told you, Mr. President because I never had the opportunity to sit down with you and I tell you Mr. President, I’d give you information and documents that would fetch you N3T now in Nigeria".
