How Fashola mistakingly proved Buhari, ‘his parrot’ Lai Mohammed are liars – Omokri

Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has disagreed with the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, over claims of Buhari’s detailed management style.

Shehu had in a release Sunday, condemned those criticising the President for not addressing the issue of restructuring in his national broadcast.

Some had even accused the president of not being aware of the content of the speech he delivered before the broadcast.

But Shehu, in the release, had said that issues were better resolved through “established processes, not by abuses, insults or irresponsible statements”.

Shehu had also said that “Every memo, statement, speech, is subject to his intense scrutiny, right down to the placement of commas and full stops.”

He also noted that, “Changes don’t happen on a whim in a democracy. The ‘immediate effect’ military mentality cannot work under a democratic order”.

“Since the president has sworn to defend the constitution, he will remain faithful to that oath by working with the legislature in taking major decisions on the future of Nigeria’s federal system.

“While Nigerians are free to express themselves, they should exercise such liberty with restraint and a sense of responsibility”, he said.

Shehu stated that calling the president an enemy of Nigeria “is in extreme bad taste.”

“The country’s parliament is ready and willing to discuss all issues but the pundits are more interested in television and newspaper headlines,” he said.

“Threats don’t work in a democracy. Democracy requires planning and proper process; issues are resolved through established processes, not by abuses, insults or irresponsible statements”.

However, Omokri disagreed with him on the aspect of the president scrutinising “every memo, statement, speech,…right down to the placement of commas and full stops.”

Omokri said, “Every memo, statement, speech, is subject to his intense scrutiny, right down to the placement of commas and full stops”-Garba Shehu in his press statement on President Muhammadu Buhari released yesterday.

“Look at the spelling of the name of a man who Garba Shehu claims scrutinizes every document “right down to the placement of commas and full stops.” If you can’t spot a misspelling of your own name, how can you stop the mismanagement of your own Presidency?
