Aisha Buhari Takes 'Major New Role In Aso Rock'

Aisha Buhari has reportedly taken a major new role in Aso Rock,  Nigeria’s Presidential Villa.

NewsOne Nigeria reports that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that First Lady, Aisha Buhari, is now the new unelected president of Nigeria.

This online news platform had reported earlier that President Muhammadu Buhari appointed Ibrahim Gambari to replace late Abba Kyari who died of Coronavirus in April as his new Chief of Staff.

This reliable online news platform understands that Gambari was unveiled at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) by Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) on Wednesday, May 13.

After the appointment, when contacted, Garba Shehu the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity had said he was not aware of Gambari’s appointment he was not briefed about the appointment of the President’s new chief of staff.

Reacting to the statement of the Presidential spokesman, Nnamdi Kanu, who is on exile, claimed that Aisha Buhari has chased Garba Shehu out of the Presidential Villa as she has taken a”new major role in Aso Rock” after Abba Kyari’s death.

In a post on social media network, Facebook, the IPOB leader wrote: “Now she is the Boss! Garba Shehu chased out of The Villa and made to wear visitor’s tag when visiting.

“Nigerians- sorry UTPs, I give you your newest unelected ruler, Her Excellency, Madam President Aisha Buhari.

“She succeeded the late and equally unelected ‘President’ Abba Kyari. Jubril Al-Sudani the poster boy is in hiding. #AsoRockIsEmpty. After COVID-19, to your tents O’ Israel,” Kanu wrote on his Facebook page.

Meanwhile, NewsOne Nigeria recalls that the Aisha Buhari had late last year claimed that Garba Shehu was no longer loyal to President Buhari, adding that the presidential aide had shifted his loyalty to a close relative of Buhari, Mamman Daura, who she accused of issuing a presidential directive behind the President. She had also alleged that Mamman Daura was issuing directives to Garba Shehu, not to recognize her office.
