- President Muhammadu Buhari was not allowed to see his wife during her recent visit to the UK
The media outlet stated that the president has been kept away from several of his aides and even those bodyguards who supposedly traveled with him. This is to reduce access to him in an effort to control information leaks to the public.
According to SAHARA REPORTERS’ sources, the President’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari who also frequents London to take care of himself, is still the manipulator-in-chief.
It was further reported that President Buhari has not conversed with the acting President Yemi Osinbajo for several weeks following his departure to the UK for a second round of medical treatment of an undisclosed medical condition suspected to be cancer.
Sources gave an example of last Wednesday, when members of Buhari’s cabal called the Acting President and asked him to await a call from the ailing President, pointing out that no such call was received except one that was just a few seconds of hellos before the person hung up the phone.
SaharaReporters also learned that the public declaration by Orji Uzor Kalu, a former Governor of Abia State, that he met Buhari in London is a complete fabrication as Buhari did not at any time receive the Mr. Kalu, who recently decamped to APC.
In particular, sources close to the presidency stated that they suspect Kalu was using that gimmick to intimidate the judge who is trying him for corruption, considering that he wore a turban to court a few days later.
Our sources confirmed that Buhari is incommunicado, and is only reached by two of his aides, Tunde Saburi and Sarki Abba, who have maintained sealed lips on his condition.
Another notable point from the source is that Hajia Buhari returned from her recent trip, she sent messages to her family members in Adamawa claiming her husband was recovering fast but asked for intensification of prayers.
The cabal reportedly as far as forging Buhari’s signature so as to give the impression that he is still in control even after Buhari himself had handed over power to his vice, trying to create the impression that he is still in charge.
Mr. Kyari is said to be in charge of all the behind-the-scene moves. It was he, they claimed, who a few days ago passed a fake document to Garba Shehu, one of Buhari’s spokespersons, claiming that Buhari had given Osinbajo the go-ahead to sign the 2017 budget.
According to their account, Osinabjo had already decided on the date he would sign the budget, a decision that was delayed only by a last-minute discussion to include some projects such as the Lagos-Apapa Port road repairs. They said they were not surprised at Mr. Shehu’s fake statement claiming Buhari sent a letter granting the Acting President the right to sign the budget.
The sources conclude that Buhari is unaware of his environment, his memory somewhat affected.
For instance, on his way to the UK, he was reported to have asked if he was on his way to Sokoto. SR sources said that the cabal working with Buhari might bring him back the same way he was returned in February, in a scheme to use his presence to perpetrate more fraud and control power.
