“So, Umahi is going to talk to who? Ok, because he is governor, he can talk to chief of staff, he can go to see the president but what about others?”
Senate minority leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe has stated that the only person from south-east in Aso Villa is a photographer.
Abaribe said this when he featured on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme. The Senator who described Governor David Umahi’s defection as a mere occurrence which will be evaluated properly during the next presidential election, stressed the need for back channels in government which according to him is the reason for the relevance of Mamman Daura, Buhari’s nephew in the present administration.
There are however nine presidential aides who are from the south-east zone.
