BUHARI’S HEALTH: Fani-Kayode’s aide dubs President’s assistants idiotic, senseless



Jude Ndukwe, an aide to former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has tagged two aides of President Muhammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu, and Lauretta Onochie as being idiotic and senseless respectively, over their comments on protests against the president.

Shehu, a Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity had on Monday said that those behind “Resume or Resign” protest against Buhari are stepping outside the laws of the country and cautioned against it.

Another of Buhari’s aide, Onochie, had during an interview with Channels Television also said that it was disrespectful for Nigerians to be asking about the health status of the president, saying that “Buhari is a private citizen” and that “no one has right to demand his health status”.

But responding through his twitter handle on Tuesday, Ndukwe said, “Did Lauretta really say it’s disrespectful for citizens to ask about Buhari health? To think this girl was sensible a bit was a mistake.”

On Shehu he tweeted, “It is absolutely idiotic for Shehu to threaten us simply because we’re expressing our rights on status Buhari .We’re not cowed. Nonsense!

“Let me assure Shehu that rather than being cowed, we’re taking this struggle a notch higher; threats are fuel to our struggle. More of it.”

There are currently growing calls by groups of Nigerians both in London and Nigeria demanding that Buhari either returns to the country or resign.

    Absolutely! Buhari has the worst aids ever, they are irresponsible and very senseless. Buhari is the first man of Nigeria, that makes everything happening to him everybody’s business.

    When you hire an illiterate to work for you, nothing impressive will come out from his/her operations. Most of these presidential assistants only went to school, but they are uneducated and illiterates who don’t deserve the place they find themselves

      Buhari’s spokespersons are blatant irksome and not fit to be where they are. I pity those who recommended them to buhari

    Aid fighting aids over Buhari that’s lying sick in London, they should all go and find something else to do because their master will not return soon, may be he’ll return after his tenure in 2019. They should stop insulting themselves and find another job to do.
