Aisha Reacts As Daura, Buhari’s Aides Bar Ministers, Top Politicians From Seeing Him

Four months after she granted a controversial interview to the BBC, Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari is said to be unhappy with the way some powerful government officials have restricted access to her husband.

According to PUNCH, four aides of the president control access to Buhari, who is on extended medical vacation in the UK.

The aides are said to be Mamman Daura, Buhari’s nephew; Sarki Aba, senior special assistant to the president on domestic affairs; Abba Kyari, Buhari’s chief of staff; and Tunde Sabiu, personal assistant to the president.

PUNCH said anyone who wants to telephone or see the president in London must get the approval of one or more of the four aides.

The only two individuals who are exempted from seeking permission to visit Buhari or call him are Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and Aisha.

Quoting a source, the newspaper said Buhari’s wife had voiced her displeasure to close friends and associates that the “cabal” she complained about were still the ones in charge of her husband in London.

“The First Lady is not with him permanently in London, which should normally not be the case. She has had a few clashes with the cabal and she is not happy that they are also firmly in control in London. That’s why she goes and comes. She is not happy with the atmosphere over there,” PUNCH quoted the source as saying.
