Femi Fani-Kayode asks who is actually “in charge” of Nigeria after reports of a face-off between first lady’s aides, Aisha Buhari, and President Buhari’s Personal Assistant and Nephew, Sabiu Yusuf.
According to reports, on Monday, June 8, Yusuf travelled from Lagos to Abuja and drove straight to the villa where he resides but was denied access by the first lady’s assistants who insisted that he go into self-isolation at a different location as he was returning from Lagos which is the epicentre of COVID-19 in Nigeria. Yusuf allegedly refused and had the first lady’s aides arrested by the police.
Mrs. Buhari took to her Twitter handle last night to ask the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to release her aides.

”When the President’s wife is openly fighting with his aides it speaks volumes and it reflects badly on the entire nation. The power play that is going on in the Villa is embarrassing, unacceptable & increasingly dangerous. I urge @MBuhari to call all those involved to order.
Gunshots in the Villa over domestic issues? The President’s wife and PA are fighting? No-one can call either to order? The President has lost control of his home, his wife, his family, his staff, his official residence and his country? Who bewitched Nigeria? Who did this to us?
Who is running our country? Who is really in charge? Where are we heading? A nation of 200 million people and this is the best we can do? Is Nigeria a jungle or a zoo? Have we been cursed? Have we lost all sense of decency and discipline?
A First Lady and a Personal Assistant indulging in a rofo-rofo fight in the seat of power and shooting at one another when the President is supposedly still alive? Or is there something that we don’t know? It’s a crying shame! May God help us!”
