Last week, Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, alleged that there are “elements” in the Presidential villa working against the success of the APC.
Naj’atu Muhammad, a former senatorial candidate, says Aisha Buhari, wife of the president, is a member of the “cabal” manipulating governance in the country.
Last week, Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, alleged that there are “elements” in President Muhammadu Buhari’s inner circle working against the success of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming elections.
A few hours after, Aisha shared the video clip of the interview on her Instagram page, which many believed to be a demonstration of her support for the claims by the Kaduna governor.
The president’s wife had, on several occasions, publicly complained about fifth columnists in the presidential villa.
However, in an interview with ARISE NEWS on Monday, Muhammad labelled Aisha as a member of the same “cabal” the president’s wife has always complained about.
She said Aisha reshared the video of el-Rufai’s claims, not as a protest but as confirmation of the presence of the cabal in the state house.
“A cabal is a secret political group or faction that is masked and manipulates and controls everything that runs in the government. That is what a cabal is. One of the cabals is Aisha Buhari,” Muhammad said.
“Aisha Buhari that is talking today is part of the cabal. She confirmed that there is a cabal in the villa by resharing what el-Rufai said.
“Aisha that is talking is part of the cabals. We knew the cabals of the late Abba Kyari. When she started talking of the cabals, she didn’t have the guts to come and name names. For the first time in Nigeria, I started to mention names.”
