The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has reacted to the interview granted by the wife of Mr President, Aisha Buhari, following her remark that those who did nothing to help the emergence of her husband, Muhammadu Buhari, as President, are the people now in the corridor of power.
Saraki had earlier stated that a nefarious group within the government of President Buhari has seized the apparatus of Executive powers to pursue their selfish agenda.

In an interview with BBC Hausa Service, the wife of the president said, “Those who didn’t do anything, who don’t even have voters’ cards are the ones in position, doing everything”.
Saraki’s comments were conveyed by a tweet posted on Friday morning by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Bamikole Omisore, noting that Mrs. Buhari’s comment came “months apart” from Saraki’s own complaint about “the same thing”.
Omisore stated that Buhari and those who criticised his principal at the time he made the comments should understand that both the president’s wife and his principal meant well for the administration.
“Aisha Buhari and Bukola Saraki both have the best interest of President Buhari at heart,” he said in the tweet.
Speaking later in an interview with Premium Times, the Senate President’s media aide said: “It is true that we still believe that there’s a government within the government.
“We do believe that the president has good intention and we’re behind him. But a situation where a few people are in charge does not bode well for the image and the future of our country.”
He pointed out that the recent development in which the Minister of Finance openly disagreed with the Governor of Central Bank on economic matters clearly showed that administration officials were taking directives from conflicting authorities.
“A situation where people that work within the executive say one thing and other people that work in the same administration say and even do another thing.
“It shows that people are getting directives from different authorities,” Omisore said, calling on Nigerians to pay attention to Buhari’s statement because she is a mother for the whole country.
“Mrs. Buhari is our mother and she has come out to say that the way things are being run, where APC manifesto has been abandoned and the party completely left out of governance, should not continue for too long,” he stated
