We’ll Tell Buhari To Speak With Nigerians – Presidency

The Presidency has promised to get President Muhammadu Buhari to speak
to Nigerians following controversies over his health status and
well-being. According to Vanguard, Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu,
who disclosed this in Abuja on the sidelines of an interactive session
with Nigerian youths organized by the Citizens Support for Good
Governance in Nigeria , yesterday,

Asked why the President’s handlers have not deemed it fit to get him to
talk directly to Nigerians through Nigeria’s media, Shehu said the
suggestion would be forwarded to the president to see if he would agree.

‘’Okay, if you are making a suggestion, we will put it to him, in case he would agree. We will put it to him, ‘’he said.

 On the issue of a cabal in Presidency, Garba said:  ‘’

This country has one government. When Nigerians voted, they voted for
Buhari/Osinbajo on one ticket. Nobody can divide that ticket, so if
Prof. Osinbajo achieves a milestone, it is a milestone by the Buhari
administration. It is one government, no division in this government.’’

 He also added that Nigerians have to be grateful to the President,
whose emergence, he said, halted the menacing advance of the Boko Haram
terrorists, who by now, according to him, might have overran the
Presidential Villa in Aso Rock.

‘’He (Buhari) wants a future that is secure and stable for young
generations that are coming, that is yourselves. This is why in his
messages, he has stayed on three key issues; he has repeated this over
and over again. ‘’He says this country cannot make any progress without
security. And look at all the efforts that has been put in rolling back
Boko Haram. There are many people who believe that if not for President
Buhari, if the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had continued in this
country in 2015, Boko Haram would have taken over Aso Rock by now,’’ he
said.
