– The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) says the president remains in charge of the affairs of the country
– The BMO condemns Governor Tambuwal for saying the country is run by proxy
– The group claims Tambuwal is speaking as a result of frustration from his defeat at the PDP primaries
The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has slammed Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state for saying the president has continued to rule the country by proxy.
The group declared that Buhari is fully in charge of the affairs of the country.
Daily Trust reports that a statement signed by the chairman of the BMO, Niyi Akinsiju, and the secretary, Cassidy Madueke, said Tambuwal’s comment that President Buhari was not only not in charge of government but also ruling the country by proxy was a ‘grave error’ on his part.
According to the group, Tambuwal spoke as a frustrated man following his defeat during the presidential primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“We wish to note that Governor Tambuwal has not only failed to serve the people of Sokoto State diligently in the past three and a half years but has, in his utterances, displayed crass ignorance on sensitive national issues,” the statement said.
It was earlier reported that the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) called for the withdrawal of the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Reverend Matthew Kukah, from the National Peace Committee led by former head of state, General Abdulsalam Abubakar.
The organisation made the call in a statement issued by its chairman Niyi Akinsiju and secretary Cassidy Madueke on Tuesday, October 16, in Abuja.
The group said the call had become necessary because of Kukah’s alleged open display of support for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
It noted that the Abdulsalam Abubakar-led committee was one that should be seen to be non partisan because of the role it was meant to play in the run-up to the 2015 general elections.
