"Nigerians Have Confidence In Me, Your Opinion Does Not Matter" - Buhari Replies Danjuma 3

President Muhammadu Buhari has dismissed the claim by a former Minister of Defence, Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.), that Nigeria under his watch is in deep rot.

KanyiDaily recalls that Danjuma had scored Buhari low in governance and anti-corruption war, claiming that Nigeria under his watch “is in a big hole.

Danjuma added that most Nigerians would be seriously disturbed to extend of losing their sleep if he reveal what he knew about what was going on in Buhari’s government.

During an exclusive interview with The Interview, Buhari said Danjuma’s opinion is not more important than that of millions of Nigerians who who passed a vote of confidence in him as president for a second term in 2019.

Asked if he was concerned about the vote of low confidence expressed by Danjuma, Buhari said:

“And what is the vote of confidence of Nigerians in me, as expressed in the polls last year? That is what matters more, not the opinion of one man.”

Buhari also said the relationship between him and Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, “is perfect” despite the perception in certain quarters that there may be a cold war between the two.

Asked about his relationship with Osinbajo, Buhari simply replied:

“Perfect. Or has he complained to you? Thank you very much.”

He also denied the existence of a ‘cabal’ in his regime, said to be dictating the pace of governance in the country. Buhari said:

“I addressed this matter before. I was the one who went round the country on campaigns, and I was the one voted into office as President twice.

“No one else did, and no one else took the oath of office, and can exercise the powers of a President.”

When asked whether some of the actions of his regime were not in direct opposite to his claim of being a “reformed democrat,” Buhari said he did not expect critics to praise him.

According to him, his satisfaction is that Nigerians have confidence in him, as expressed during the last polls.

“You called them critics. If they are critics, you would hardly expect them to garland me. Rather, they would look for things to try and de-market me.

“But, I am glad that as they do that, millions of Nigerians know who their President truly is, and they have made it clear in 2015 and 2019 presidential elections. All countries, including the old democracies must maintain law and order. If you look around the world, our policing operations are as restrained as any,” he added.

Meanwhile, a former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has urged Theophilus Danjuma to reveal the things happening in Nigeria.

Fani-Kayode asked Danjuma to give details of whatever he knows about Nigeria before it is too late, as they country is already being ruled by “crude barbarians”.
