We all can recollect the position of the wife of the President Mrs Aisha Buhari that the President should stop employing the people that were alien to the party, especially the people that were not keen on the ideologies of the All Progressives Congress. She vehemently complained about Lawal Daura and Abba Kyari who usurped the power of the presidency and were not instrumental to the coming on board of the party.
You recall that Aisha was once referred to as ‘Suicide Bomber from ADAMAWA ( her parental source before marrying Buhari) while Daura and Kyari were discussing in a leaked telephone conversation.
This matter is coming out now as more revelations are being made to bare how Lawal Daura sneaked into the heart of Buhari’s cousin Mamman Daura to meet President Buhari in 2015 who later appointed him as the DG DSS.
Mr Abdulrahman said ”in the course of their work and as part of the transition team after Mr Buhari won the election, Mr Daura “kept producing fake reports about (Ita) Ekpenyong (his predecessor), but we never knew what he was targeting,” until late.
He said Mr Daura soon developed the habit of going to Mr Buhari’s influential cousin, Mamman Daura, to report Mr Ekpenyong and give details of what the election committee was doing.
That way, he said Lawal Daura warmed his way into Mamman Daura’s heart. He also said despite coming from the same neighbourhood in Katsina state, Mr Buhari never knew Lawal Daura until 2015.
“He was introduced to the president by the late Senator Mustapha Bukar,” he said.
He also said Mr Daura was never a favourite of President Buhari because of his “antecedents”, suggesting he was somehow imposed on him by Mamman Daura and others close to him.
“When he was appointed he kept putting pressure on me and Maikano, the current AO (admin officer) at the presidential villa to come and work with him as SA. He assured me that what I will get under him, I cannot get even as a Minister,” Mr Abdulrahman said.
