former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, on Friday asserted that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in charge of his government.
Lawal made the assertion during an interview on Channels Television.
The ex-SGF said that there is no government without an inner caucus.
According to him, those in the current administration who had the ears of the President refused to carry Buhari’s expectations.
“Things are out of his hands, there’s no running away from that fact. There are people that do not take the orders they are given,” he stated.
“As soon as they leave where the order is given, they go and do different things. There is nothing like cabal. There is no government that does not have an inner caucus. There’s no government.
“There are people who have the ears of the President, to whom the President by functionality, their functions in government, ought to do things, but they are not doing what the President tells them to do, or what the President expects them to do, or what society itself expects them to do.”
