A report by SaharaReporters has said that the cabals which includes some members of President Muhammadu Buhari’s extended family and friends are the alleged to be the powers behind the presidency.

According to the publication, a presidential source claims Buhari and members of the Aso Rock cabals are planning to retain power in the Northern region in 2023.

It was also stated that the cabals are secretly supporting the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar as against its own party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

It has been alleged that a group, led by Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura, is behind the major appointment of persons and policies.

The source revealed that before the before PDP’s presidential primary that took place on May 28th, Buhari approved the payment of billions of naira to settle debts that the government owed some companies linked to Atiku .

“Do you know why Atiku doesn’t really care about (Rivers State Governor, Nyesom) Wike and others? It’s because President Buhari and the cabals are supporting him,” he said.

“Buhari gave him monies that were owed him to enable him win the PDP primary. He asked the richest man in Katsina, Dahiru Mangal, to defect to PDP and support Atiku; the reason Atiku is calling Wike’s bluff.

“With Atiku from the North, as a presidential candidate, they have asked top northerners to work for him irrespective of party affiliation.”

Recall that Rives State Governor, Nyesom Wike recently alleged that Abubakar was arrogant because he has the support of someone in the presidency.

Adding that same cabal at the presidency promised an APC Presidential aspirant but couldn't deliver.

“Why are they being so arrogant? They are arrogant because they believe somebody in the presidency is backing them. But what they don’t understand is the same person in the presidency backed somebody as APC presidential aspirant, and the person failed,” he had said.

“I will tell Nigerians at the appropriate time who is that person in the presidency that is backing them that they are being arrogant.”
