First Lady, Aisha Buhari has vindicated Senate President, Bukola Saraki with her revelation that the Muhammadu Buhari government has been hijacked, Saraki’s aide says.
According to the senate president’s media aide, Bamikole Omisore, Mrs Buhari comments are a confirmation of a similar alarm raised by Saraki in June.
‘Aisha Buhari and Bukola Saraki both have the best interest of President Buhari at heart,’ Omisore said via Twitter on Friday, October 14.
“Folks who campaigned for Buhari and APC & because they believe in him & manifestation of APC are being sidelined for those who don't,” he added.
Omisore also confirmed the existence of a cabal in Buhari’s government during a chat with Premium Times.
“It is true that we still believe that there’s a government within the government. We do believe that the president has good intention and we’re behind him. But a situation where a few people are in charge does not bode well for the image and the future of our country,” he said.
“A situation where people that work within the executive say one thing and other people that work in the same administration say and even do another thing. It shows that people are getting directives from different authorities.
“Mrs. Buhari is our mother and she has come out to say that the way things are being run, where APC manifesto has been abandoned and the party completely left out of governance, should not continue for too long,” he added.
Mrs Buhari made the comments during a recent interview with BBC and also warned that she would not campaign for her husband’s re-election of the current state of affairs persists.
