Let the courts judge – says President Buhari
In a swift reaction, the presidency in a statement, said Saraki was pursuing a nefarious agenda. Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr Femi Adesina said Saraki’s claim “is not only ridiculous, but also preposterous. It is not in the character of our president.”
The statement reads in part: “President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, claims there is ‘now a government within the government of President Buhari’, which has allegedly seized the apparatus of executive powers to pursue a nefarious agenda. “This claim by Senator Saraki would have been more worth the while, if it had been backed with more information. If he had proceeded to identify those who constitute the ‘government within the government,’ it would have taken the issue beyond the realm of fiction and mere conjecture. “The Attorney-General of the Federation is the Chief Law Officer of the state. It is within his constitutional powers to determine who has infringed upon the law, and who has not.” The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) yesterday said that it had no immediate reaction to Saraki’s statement. The AGF, Abubakar Mallami SAN stated this during a telephone chat with Daily Trust yesterday
