Buhari Is Not In Control Of The Federal Government

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has said that the claims by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo that President Muhammadu Buhari was not aware of the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria(CJN),Walter Onnoghen’s trial until Saturday was a confirmation that the President was not in control of his government.

The former governor, in a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday said it was shameful and disgraceful that a Vice-President, who is a senior lawyer, could be telling Nigerians that he and the President were not informed before the CJN was charged to the Code of Conduct Tribunal(CCT).

He added, “It should now be clear to Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in charge of anything. He might not even be in charge of his existence let alone being conscious of his position as the President of Nigeria.

“Is the Vice-President saying that the Minister of Justice can unilaterally file charges against a high profile government official like the CJN?

“What the Vice-President just told Nigerians is that the government is truly under the firm control of the cabal that the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, said Nigerians should rescue her husband from.

“Therefore, Nigerians should rescue themselves from the hands of the cabal and elect a president that will be in charge of his government.”
