Aisha Is Right, Buhari Not In Charge On Nigeria – Fayose Says

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has alleged that the
claim by the wife of the President, Muhammadu Buhari,
Aisha Buhari that a cabal has hijacked Buhari’s government is

Fayose said some of Buhari’s appointees are more powerful
than him.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi,
Fayose stressed that Buhari has lost grip of his government
He noted that incessant acts of impunity perpetrated by
presidency officials and other Buhari’s appointees was a
testament to the fact that the President is not in control of
his government.

Fayose, therefore, urged the president to intervene forcefully,
to restrain presidency officials and other appointees from
endangering our “democracy and making mockery of the

He said, “Governance has been reduced to a theatre of the
absurd. These appointees of yours are needlessly and
embarrassingly flexing muscles and are heating up the polity;
they appear to be having fun and regaling themselves at the
expense of the nation.

“The economy has collapsed and the people are suffering.
There is hunger and anger never before witnessed in the land.

“Yet, Presidential appointees are preoccupied with trivialities
and inanities. Wearing of uniform has suddenly become a
Supreme Court matter. Why a man who will not wear uniform
went to take a uniformed job beggars belief. How someone
who has so little respect and scanty regard for an
organisation like the Nigeria Customs Service should be made
to head the same organisation must baffle right-thinking

“In other societies where people have a sense of decency and
decorum, people with such irreconcilable differences would
honourably resign their position.

“And where a government finds itself unable to effectively
govern, as we appear to have here on our hands, it behoves
the head of that government to do the needful.

“Mr. President, let it not be said that you have lost grip of
your government. Nigerians are beginning to believe, as a
statement of fact, your wife’s allegation that a cabal has
taken over your government. Your defence that your wife
belongs to “the other room” now rings hollow in the ears of

“The saying is that he who appoints can also disappoint. Your
appointees are your creation and it is an aberration when they
become greater and more powerful than you. Mr. President,
the tail is wagging the dog right now. You must take
effective and firm action to reverse this ugly and
unwholesome trend.

“I am also the head of a government and I know how it works.
The ‘consortium of presidents’ around you, as Nigerians now
derisively refer to those ‘powerful’ and larger-than-life
appointees of yours who take delight in riding roughshod over
the polity and desecrating the hallowed chambers of justice,
must be cut to size. If you need help, Nigerians are ready to
queue behind you on this issue to put an end to your
appointees’ shenanigans.

“Mr. President, I, Ayo Fayose, volunteer to help you in this
regard. As a state governor, I cannot brook a tenth of what
you are taking from your appointees. None of my appointees
can disrespect and disparage the Ekiti State House of
Assembly like your appointees are doing to the National

“Did you listen to what a distinguished Senator of the Federal
Republic said this week on the floor of the red chamber; that
for the 59 days that you were away on medical leave in
London, your appointees were gentle and behaved themselves
and there were no killings in any part of the country by
rampaging herdsmen; but now you are back and the troubles
are back with us again? We all prayed for your quick recovery
and swift return to office. Must we now regret doing so?”
