The First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, has accused Mr Garba Shehu of shifting his loyalty from President Muhammadu Buhari to those she said have no stake in governance. She made the allegation in a statement entitled ‘Garba Shehu Has Gone Beyond His Boundaries’ and personally signed by her on Wednesday.
Mrs Buhari also shared the statement on her verified Twitter handle. According to her, Shehu who is the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity has gone beyond his boundaries and is “meddling in the affairs of a First Lady of a country”. The President’s wife recalled the incident at the Presidential Villa shortly after she returned from the United Kingdom. She said Shehu, as her husband’s spokesperson, knew the truth and had the responsibility to set the records straight.
Mrs Buhari, however, alleged that the presidential aide deliberately refused to clear the air and speak for his principal who appointed him in the first place. She added that Shehu allegedly kept mute to cause more confusion and instability for the President, stressing that “all trust has broken down between him and my family”.
The President’s spokesman has yet to respond to the allegations.
