Presidency Sources have revealed that Aisha Buhari was not allowed to see her husband during her recent visit to the United Kingdom.
Information available to newsmen has it that President Muhammadu Buhari has been kept away from several of his aides and even those bodyguards who supposedly traveled with him.
It was also learnt that Mr. Buhari is yet to speak to the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo since his departure to London for a second round of medical treatment for yet to be disclosed ailment.
The sources gave the example of Wednesday last week when members of Buhari’s cabal called the Acting President and asked him to await a call from the ailing President, pointing out that no such call was received except one that was just a few seconds of hellos before the person hung up the phone.
Again, the public declaration by Orji Uzor Kalu, a former Governor, that he met Buhari in London has been said to be untrue as Buhari did not at any time receive him, according a source in the presidency.
According to some more sources, Buhari is incommunicado, and is only reached by two aides, Tunde Saburi and Sarki Abba, who have maintained stoic silence about his condition.
The cabal reportedly reduced access to Buhari in an effort to control information leaks to the public.
As gathered by Sahara Reporters, Mr. Kyari is said to be in charge of all the behind-the-scene moves. It was he, they claimed, who a few days ago allegedly passed a fake document to Garba Shehu, one of Buhari’s spokespersons, claiming that Buhari had given Osinbajo the go-ahead to sign the 2017 budget.
According to their account, Osinabjo had already decided on the date he would sign the budget, a decision that was delayed only by a last-minute discussion to include some projects such as the Lagos-Apapa Port road repairs.
