A Yola-based human rights activist and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Alhaji Suleiman Baba Jada, has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari to be wary of his kitchen cabinet whom he described as “desperadoes disguised in the cloak of Buharism to achieve personal gains.”
Jada stated this in an interview with journalists in Yola yesterday, stressing that President Buhari needed to be “more firm and aggressive, especially in handling national issues,” noting that the existence of pretenders and fifth columnists “is contributing heavily in creation confusion and division in the country.”
“These cabal now surrounding and frustrating President Buhari; so I want the president to look inwards with a view to sending them packing from the Presidency so that their clandestine activities can be addressed squarely.
“Buhari must dislodge this so called cabal surrounding him in that presidency because there is serious damage to the administration which many Nigerians struggle to form out of love and trust to him.”
Jada, who hailed Buhari’s administration for road networks, as well as well as for removing the country out economic recession, said the administration meant well for Nigerians.
He described the recent letters written by former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida as “a calculated attempt to pin this current government down.”
He said the two former leaders (IBB and Obasanjo) were the causative agents of the present predicament bedevilling us as a country accusing them of institutionalising corruption and nepotism in Governance for their selfish reasons.
“President Buhari should not be discouraged with the blackmail of those two leaders (IBB and Obansanjo) which they exhibited in their separate letters to him because they introduced and institutionalised corruption with nepotism in our governments.
“To me, these letters are purposely for their selfish interests which all well-meaning Nigerians must reject in the best interest of our country while Buhari should focus in providing dividends of democracy to us.”
Baba, who doubles as Ubandoma Jada, said even the appointment of Boss Mustapha as replacement for Babachir David Lawan as SGF was mistaken in nature explaining that there many good hands from different tribes that should have been better.
“For fairness and justice, the appointment of Boss Mustapha as SGF need to be revisited because they are from the same tribe with the former SGF Babachir, while there are better and good Christians from different tribes in Adamawa.”
