Advice Me In Writing Not Publicly, Buhari Slams Emir of Kano

Advice Me In Writing Not Publicly, Buhari Slams Emir of Kano

President Muhammadu Buhari has cautioned top traditional rulers in the country against advicing him on the affairs of the economic publicly, requesting that they henceforth do so through privately written memos.

This is coming a day after the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido, made blistering public remarks on Buhari’s economic policies during a public function in Kaduna.

Buhari made the request yesterday through the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, who visited him at the Presidential Villa.

The Alaafin, who spoke with State House Correspondents shortly after the meeting, said that his visit was a follow up on a private memo he wrote to the president on the state of the nation.

The revered monarch said “As a Nigerian and one of the topmost traditional rulers in the country, I sent a memorandum to the President which he acknowledged and asked me to come and endorse those things I have written.

“I think it was time for me to use the proper channel to reach the President for suggestions and advice.

“Where he deserves commendation, I should also do that especially as it concerns the multi-dimensional problems Nigeria is facing like the Avengers and bombing of oil installations, MEND and Boko Haram insurgency in the North East.”

According to the Alafin, “The President listened attentively and has asked me to pass the information to other traditional rulers in my domain to assist the government by giving advice because he is a good listener; but that such advice should be put in writing so that he can then relate it to the problems affecting Nigeria.”

He commended the President for acting swiftly to flush out criminal elements that wanted to extend militancy to Lagos and the rest of South-West.

“I have met with the President and offered some suggestions. We are losing huge resources to the activities of the Niger Delta Avengers. Coming close to that is the infiltration of the militants in Lagos and Ikorodu where in the last three weeks, 10 landlords were massacred,” he added.
