A former Federal Commissioner for Information, Edwin Clark has accused Mamman Daura of masterminding the affairs and activities at Aso Rock.
He also accused Garba Shehu, Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Buhari of being an errand boy for Mamman Daura and his cabal. Clark said he goes to visit the president once in a while and he does not go there for just anything.
Clark released a statement and said Mamman Daura has no place in Aso rock because he has not been voted into power by any entity.
The statement read as “Mamman Daura has never held any notable political appointment to qualify him to be a political adviser to Mr. President, Muhammadu Buhari on the affairs of Nigeria, which entitles him (Mamman Daura) to have permanent accommodation/residency at the Aso Villa, with his family, where politicians go to him, to lobby for political appointments.
“It is, therefore, not true that he visits the Aso Villa to advise Mr. President. He resides permanently at the Villa with his family. This is what led to the open display of shame between the First Lady, Aisha Buhari and Mamman Daura’s Children.
“The First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari has severally complained openly of how her husband’s nephew, Mamman Daura and his family, keep harassing and interfering in the affairs of the first family. He is the leader of the ‘Villa Cabal’ and the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to Mr President, Garba Shehu is the go-between or the errand boy of the ‘Cabal’.
“Mamman Daura as nephew to Mr. President has every right to speak on their family matters because he is part of Muhammadu Buhari’s family. But he has no experience or qualification to give directives on Nigeria’s governmental affairs.
