The All Progressives Congress, APC, Kwara State chapter has said it shares same view with the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki that there is a government within the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by its Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Sulyman Buhari, the party said, ”the statement signed by Mr Femi Adesina on behalf of Mr President is not only unpresidential, it also failed to convincingly dismiss the widely held view of Nigerians that, indeed, there is a government within the government of Mr President.
It is instructive to note that the Senate President is not the first Nigerian to express such observations.
“The Senate President, through the press statement he personally signed, only called the attention of Mr President to the danger ahead if the ugly situation is permitted to fester on.
“Infact, the statement issued by Mr Adesina is the clearest indication that a government exists within the government of Mr President. The President that we know, the President that we have worked with, the President that we have worked for, the President that we voted for, would not have directed his media adviser to issue such unpresidential statement. That statement is a confirmation of the Senate President’s observation.
“The intention of people like Adesina in the villa is to create a discord between Mr President and the Senate President, but that will never happen.
“It is the same cabal that embarrassed Mr President himself by padding the 2016 National budget, including the budget of Aso-Rock, to the extent of inflating some figures in the villa expenditures. It is the same cabal that has made it nearly impossible for many ministers and SAs to have access to Mr President. The Presidency should be reminded that a cabal hijacked and destroyed the government of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Instead of embarking on futile drive to denounce and dismiss the obvious, what is expected is for the Presidency to embrace introspection and take right steps in the interests of the Nation to forestall the wrath of Nigerians who are getting weary of excuses for the litany of challenges facing the country.
