Presidency: Saraki's Claim on Cabal, a Mere Conjecture

June 27, 2016, 4:31 pm

The Presidency on Monday described as "a mere conjecture," the claims by Senate President Bukola Saraki that a cabal within the administration of President Buhari has allegedly seized powers to pursue a nefarious agenda.

Presidential Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said Saraki's claim‎ would have been more worth the while, if it had been backed with more information.

"If he had proceeded to identify those who constitute the “government within the government,” it would have taken the issue beyond the realm of fiction and mere conjecture.  

"But as it stands, the allegation is not even worth the paper on which it was written, as anybody can wake from a troubled sleep, and say anything."

Adesina further said it was within the constitutional powers of the Attorney-General of the Federation as the Chief Law Officer of the state to determine who had infringed upon the law, and who had not.  

"Pretending to carry an imaginary cross is mere obfuscation, if, indeed, a criminal act has been committed.  But we leave the courts to judge.

"To claim that President Muhammadu Buhari is anybody’s stooge is not only ridiculous, but also preposterous. It is not in the character of our president," Adesina submitted.
