Abba Kyari vs Monguno: Ohanaeze passes verdict on power tussle

Abba Kyari vs Monguno: Ohanaeze passes verdict on power tussle

Following the face-off between President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, CoS, Abba Kyari and the National Security Adviser, NSA, Babagana Monguno, the apex Igbo socio-political organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has faulted comments that the President was not in charge of his government.

Ohanaeze Secretary-General, Barr. Uche Okwukwu in a chat with DAILY POST on Wednesday maintained that contrary to insinuations, Buhari was in charge of his government and should be allowed to discharge his constitutional duties as an executive president.

Recall that Monguno had accused Buhari’s Chief of Staff of hijacking the coordination of the country’s security architecture.

A circular from Monguno’s office had alleged that, Kyari contrary to protocols, convened meetings with heads of defence, security and intelligence agencies with their supervising Ministers in attendance.

But the face-off had generated controversy among Nigerians who insisted that Buhari was not in charge of his government.

However, Okwukwu maintained that whatever action taken by Buhari’s appointees emanates from the president.

According to the Ohanaeze Secretary-General: “Buhari is in charge. He has the power to delegate duties to anybody he likes. Anybody appointed by Buhari is working for him so whatever decision they take is from the president. Nobody knows the working of the Presidency better than the president.

“In some states, the governors are working through their Special Advisers and not Commissioners, so whatever is happening there is left to them except he said something that we are not aware of.

“Too many people have said different things. Some people said the president will die. When he was abroad, some said he had died, that he is Jubril. Now, we have seen that the president is intact, discharging his duties, and he even ran his campaign across the country.

“In 2019, he was at the 36 states of the federation. That shows that he was strong and healthy. Only God knows what is happening inside.

“He is an executive president, and we must allow him to rule and discharge his duties; unless the way he conducts the affairs of the state violates the constitution. If he has not, then they should allow him to rule.”
