The First Lady Aisha Buhari, has demanded for the resignation of the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu whom she accuses of taking instructions from President Buhari’s cousin, Mamman Daura and declared that there will be no Office of the First Lady,a thing which embarrassed the President.
She also accuses him of releasing the video in which she had an altercation with the Daura family to the press, adding that his loyalty is not to anyone or group.

Here is the full text of her statement.

Garba Shehu Has Gone Beyond His Boundaries

Nigeria’s development is hinged on the ability of public officials to execute their mandates professionally, and to be shining examples in their various areas of endeavor. It is not a good sign when officials abandoned their responsibility and start clutching at straws.

As spokesperson of the President, he has the onerous responsibility of managing the image of the President and all the good works that he is executing in the country. Rather than face this responsibility squarely, he has shifted his loyalty from the President to others who have no stake in the compact that the President signed with Nigerians on May 29, 2015 and 2019.

To make matters worse, Mr. Shehu has presented himself to these people as a willing tool and executioner of their antics, from the corridors of power even to the level of interfering with the family affairs of the President.

This should not be so. The blatant meddling in the affairs of a First Lady of a country is a continuation of the prodigal actions of those that he serves.

We all remember that the chief proponent appropriated to himself and his family a part of the Presidential Villa, where he stayed for almost 4 years and when the time came for him to leave, he orchestrated and invaded my family’s privacy through a video circulated by Mamman’s Daughter, Fatima, the public was given the impression that on arrival into the country I was locked out of the villa by Mr. President.

Garba Shehu as Villa Spokesperson, knew the truth and had the responsibility to set the records straight, but because his allegiance is somewhere else and his loyalty misplaced, he deliberately refused to clear the air and speak for the President who appointed him in the first place. Consequently, his action has shown a complete breakdown of trust between the First Family and him.

Mr. Shehu was privy and part of the plan and it’s execution and he was shocked when he realized that I had publicized my return to Nigeria on October 12, 2019 and cleared the air on the many rumors that took over social media, a job he was supposed to do but kept mute to cause more confusion and instability for his Principal and his family.

Garba then, vented his anger on the National Television Authority (NTA) Management insisting that the media crew to my office must be sacked. He succeeded in getting them suspended for doing their job.


I had to intervene to save the innocent staff from losing their means of livelihood by involving the Department of State Services (DSS) in order to ascertain roles played by key actors in the saga.

It is at this late hour that I recall, sadly, that it was the same Garba Shehu who claimed that the government will not allow office of the First Lady to run.

He was later to confirm to one of my aides that he was instructed to say so by Mamman Daura and not the President. This antic attracted the anger of Nigerian women. He didn’t realize the fact that First Lady’s office is a tradition which has become an institution.

Today, even without a budget, I am able run my humanitarian programmes.

In saner climes, Garba Shehu would have resigned immediately after going beyond his boundaries and powers.

GARBA SHEHU NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOR WILL NO LONGER BE TOLERATED.

The latest of his antics was to wage a war on the first family through an orchestrated media campaign of calumny by sponsoring pseudo accounts to write and defame my children and myself.

Based on Garba Shehu’s misguided sense of loyalty and inability to stay true and loyal to one person or group, it has become apparent that all trust has broken down between him and my family due to the many embarrassments he has caused the Presidency and the first family.

We all have families to consider in our actions and therefore it is in the best interest of all concerned for Garba Shehu to take the advice of the authority, given to him sometimes in the first week of November, 2019.

Aisha Muhammadu Buhari
First Lady, Federal Republic of Nigeria
11th December, 2019

With all this long epistle... the person I blame is the president. He obviously lost the rein of power and Authority amongst his staffs and family to this Daura of a person. Someone else is obviously overseeing it and he seem to be unreasonably quiet about it. Garba Shehu or special adviser knows that there would be more consequent disregarding Daura than the First Lady. The president has not called Daura to order hence the power intoxication. The president should be blamed.

Well at this juncture, i must confess that what Nnamdi Kanu said sometime ago about the President needs to be put into serious consideration. There are so many questions to ask and answers provided. First, Is it true that this man is still his real self, if not why does he not make strong comments especially on issues bothering on his family? Does it mean that Maman knows that he is not himself and that is why he has become the defacto president and so no matter what people say in this country nothing will happen? Is it that we are all blinded to see and understand the hand writing on the wall? Time is of essence and time will surely tell!
