The wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha Buhari, in her controversial interview granted to the BBC Hausa has said that the incumbent government had been hijacked by the unknown cabals.
Olumuyiwa Olayinka in his blog lists two men, who are among those who rule Nigeria instead of President Buhari.
1. Abba Kyari is the chief of staff to the president.A retired Brigadier general in the Nigerian army. He had been in corridors of power since Gowon era. He wielded so much power, loves power and dispenses as he wishes. Sahara Reporters accuses him of using power for personal gain. He’s reported to be an uncle to the president. He had a firm grip on Mr President and a force to reckon with in this government
2. Daura is President Buhari’s nephew.Even though the former is older than the later with a two and half year gap between them. But they are said to be close, much closer than anybody. He’s the unofficial vice president, much more than VP Osinbajo. In 1983, when the then General Muhammadu Buhari took over power from the democratically elected government of Shehu Shagari, Daura became very influential at the time.
He even became the head of African International Bank and chairman of the board of Nigerian Television Authority. Daura, it was learnt, made strong inputs in the major appointments the President made and which have continued to generate controversy from across the country. Between the two they have made this government nepotic, despotic and lacks focus.
