Cabal in government: Aisha Buhari backs Misau, shares videos of senators criticising president’s performance.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, has seemingly backed Senator Isah Misau’s suggestion, that her husband’s government has been taken over by cabals.
On Friday, she reposted two videos by Senator Misau and Senator Ben Bruce, on her verified Instagram and Twitter pages.
In the clips from OakTV, the lawmakers openly accused President Buhari of appointing incompetent people because they “belong to the cabal”.
The first one showed Senator Misau on the floor of the Senate, criticizing the president for appointing “an incompetent person” as the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA.
He accused the president of “doing nothing” since he was elected, adding “the president has not taken anything to change this country.”
Mr. Misau also said 50 per cent of the ministers in Mr. Buhari’s administration “are not performing”.
In the second video also from OakTV, Senator Bruce supported Senator Misau’s stance saying Nigeria is becoming lawless.
“We either have a government or we don’t…” he said.
The third video showed Mr. Misau saying the government has only three months to correct the anomalies, saying “it’s as if the president is not in charge.”
He advised the leadership of the National Assembly to have a “one –on- one” with the president.
The end of the third video showed former governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Adamu, protesting the language used by his colleague on the president.
Most of those who commented on the postings commended the president’s wife for “her courage” to be on the side of the people despite her position. Others even urged her to join politics.
Mrs. Buhari had in an interview with the Hausa service in October 2016 voiced out her concern that her husband’s government had been hijacked by a few individuals.
She said those who “caged” her husband did not even vote for him and that she feared they might cause him the anger of ordinary Nigerians.
In his response, while on a visit to Germany, Mr. Buhari said it was not in his wife’s place to comment on the administration.
