Former Presidential candidate of the National Action Council (NAC), Dr Olapade Agoro, has frowned at the cold war between the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari and some of the president’s aides.
Agoro in a press statement, Friday in Ibadan, Oyo state, described the development as unpleasant for Nigeria’s image.
He said: “The fact we all must take note of is that as presently constituted President Muhammadu Buhari is the symbol representative of the embodiment called Nigeria. What however cannot be divorced from the President is his family and attachment.
“It behooves to mention that when President Buhari’s home is terribly sick, the whole nationhood of Nigeria cannot be spared of it.
“The running episodes on the nation’s newspapers alarmingly claiming among others that “ Aisha’s attack on Buhari’s aide unsettles presidency”; “Disquiet in presidency as Aisha Buhari bombs Garba Shehu” et al at a time the nation is having so many problems must be enough to heat up the nerve centers of right thinking people of this nation informing that all is not well with us.
“The national centre of attraction is not holding any more with the first family in rumbles of distraction, must be a matter of concern beyond our mere conjectures.
“There is no doubting the fact that the nation’s first family having more than ordinary squabbles must be putting more than expected pressures on the thinking and or mental faculty of Mr. President.
“One of the embarrassing bye line of one news paper reads that “Aisha Buhari attacks Mamman Daura , Garba Shehu’’ must be telling the whole world that the pillars of support of Muhammadu Buhari’s presidency are getting axed beyond reparable level. This can pose a lot of irreparable damages to the methodical engineering of the nation’s presidency”.
