Tension In Aso Rock As Buhari Disowns SGF, Releases Powerful Statement 

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal ,‎might soon lose his job, as President Muhammadu Buhari, has disclosed that he is the only elected Executive President, and as such, no cabal is taking over his government.

The President’s speech is coming at a time, when the SGF was quoted to have said during an interview with Channels TV, ‎that he was honoured to be a member of the cabal in President Buhari’s government.

The SGF’s speech, came after the President’s wife, Aisha Buhari, had alleged that her husband’s government had been hijacked by some cabals, and as such, might not support his re-election bid, come 2019.

Asked to react to a report that “Alhaji Mamman Daura is the true President, while he is the unofficial Vice President”, he said: “I don’t know where they get their news from.

‎”I stood for the election, I visited every local government in Nigeria, I travelled by road, by air, and so on, and we had one of the most credible election. So whoever feels he has lost somehow is his own problem, I have no problem”,‎ Buhari noted.
