Farooq Kperogi, a Nigerian academic, media scholar, public speaker and newspaper columnist has taken to popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter to share list of four blood relatives of President Muhammadu Buhari who officially work in Presidential Villa, Aso Rock.
According to Leakers.ng in October, there was a viral footage showing First Lady Aisha Buhari shouting at Mamman Daura’s daughters in the state house sometime in 2017.
The video led President Buhari into receiving knocks from several Nigerians for allowing his family to live with him in the Presidential Villa.
In 2015, Buhari during his first term in office warned his family members to steer clear of his government. However, all turned out to be a lie as there are some of his family members who are working with him.
See the full list below;
“In 2015, Buhari warned his family members to steer clear of his government. He lied. His relatives, many of whom wallowed in grubby poverty before 2015, not only now work as his official assistants, they’e now multi-millionaires. Some are billionaires.
Here are 4 blood relatives of his that I know for a fact work for him. There may be more. I’ve confirmed these names from multiple sources in Daura and the Presidential Villa:
1. Abdulkarim Dauda.
He is Buhari’s Personal Chief Security Officer (PCSO). Like Mamman Daura, he is Buhari’s nephew. His father, Dauda Daura, is Buhari’s half-brother from the same father.
He is de facto president Mamman Daura’s full biological brother. I exposed a recent secret memo Buhari sent to the Nigeria Police (where Abdulkarim is officially employed as Commissioner of Police after 3 unnaturally rapid promotions in three years) instructing it to circumvent time-honored public service rules & extend his service till 2023 even though he should’ve retired this year on account of being in d police for 35 yrs.
2. Sabiu “Tunde” Yusuf.
