President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged his wife, Aisha, and Nigerians who have alleged that his government has been hijacked by a cabal to prove the claims.
The president’s wife has made several high-profile claims earlier in December, she said Nigeria was being controlled by two powerful people in Buhari’s government.
The allegations of a cabal running the country instead of the president has also been echoed by several notable Nigerians who have criticized the current government.
However, in a recent interview with the Voice of America, the president said no one can prove that he’s not in charge of the affairs of the nation.

In the interview, conducted in Hausa language, the president said the cabal allegations paint a totally different picture of the running of his administration. He said:
“What they are saying is different from what is happening. They should come out and say those things they feel were stage-managed by the cabal. What the cabal forced to me to do; they should mention just one thing.”
