Speaking in a new statement, the former governor further describes the duo of Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, and Garba Shehu, a senior aide as allies who are only loyal for their pay.

Full statement below:

“I urge Mr President to reflect deeply on the response in his defense made on the statement of the Northern Elders Forum on the STATE OF NATION ON SECURITY by Femi Adesina,” he wrote.

“Sir, if you reflect on your political evolution from APP, ANPP, CPC to ACN the likes of Prof Ango and Hakeem Baba Ahmed and many more in the NEF have been your loyal troops through thick and thin and have never abandoned you even in defeat!

“The question you should ask yourself is why have they abandoned you in Victory to political mercenaries like Femi and Garba who are with you only for the pay?

“Sir the issues they raised are real and each and every Nigerian except Femi and Garba share these concerns, even you as our C in C claimed not to be aware of our insecurity situation until the likes of NEF raised the red alarm!

“You need to also read the warning written by Elder Statesman Bashir Tofa to Nigerian Big Men on the analysis of Insecurity in Nigeria, our Sub Region and Africa.

“I hope the General without troops Femi was referring to sarcastically is not you sir! You have many capable hands around you sir, listen to them, engage them. You are the man of the moment. Ignore Femi, ignore Garba, keep paying them if only for charity, but please secure us!”

    Comment: Sule Lamido and like minded folks who can speak directly to the president should not allow him to rest on this one. He must not panda to Islamists or Fulani hegemonists. But if he continues in this vein, they must act to reign him in. The Americans are reigning in President Trump. Nigerians can do the same with Buhari.
