ABUJA NIGERIA. Phrank Shaibu, the media aide to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has said President Muhammadu Buhari was not aware of the trial of Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, because his government is controlled by a cabal.
He made this assertion in a statement on Wednesday in reaction to claims by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo that Buhari was not aware of Onnoghen’s travails until Saturday when the news broke.
Atiku’s spokesman, however, noted that it was the same way Buhari was not aware when dead persons were given federal appointments in 2017.
“What does this president know? In fact, I am so sure President Buhari is not aware he is contesting the February 16 election.
“The truth is that President Buhari never even intended to act as president for one day and this is one presidency that would be neither here nor there, everywhere and nowhere, visible yet ineffectual, present yet absentee in nature and action; all of which have lent further weight to the complaints of his wife that other people and not her husband are, indeed, in charge of Nigeria.”
He said the claims by Buhari’s wife, Aisha, that powerful men had hijacked her husband’s government had become self-evident.
