Why would Sabiu ‘Tunde’ Yusuf, as Buhari’s Pa, use the President’s cell phone and be texting CBN Governor, NNPC GMD and others and making financial and other demands. Why would he also take official letter headed papers and change memos? This is height of criminality pic.twitter.com/eUrWNd0GP0

Mr. Ude also revealed that he also takes official letter headed papers for personal use.
He also reportedly changes memos, a “height of criminality,” Ude noted.
Another online media has reported how the Senior Special Assistant to the President (Domestic), Abba Sarki, and Personal Assistant and the Private Secretary, Sabiu ‘Tunde’ Yusuf, in collaboration with some Ministry of Power officials had pushed the government to commit to the purchase of a building for the Transmission Company of Nigeria at a grossly inflated price in Abuja.
Sarki and Yusuf had reportedly pushed their cronies in the Ministry of Power further to actualise the purchase of the property for around N14bn to N17bn – a rate many times higher than the original cost of the building.
The Online media has also revealed how Abdul Muktar, who works as Senior Special Assistant to the President in the office of the Chief of Staff had been signing documents illegally since the demise of late Chief of Staff to President Buhari, Abba Kyari.
Abdul Muktar is son-in-law to Mamman Daura, a powerful nephew to the President and one of his closest confidants.
- The Presidency versus the Office of the First Lady
The expose is coming in the aftermath of reports that ADC to President, CPSO to President, Chief Detail to President, ADC to first lady, Escort Commander, and 37 others have been removed from the villa.
ElombahNews has reported that the State house in turmoil as President Muhammadu Buhari sacked his security details and some top aides.
President Buhari fired his security details and some top aides for the roles they played in a reported degenerated squabble among family members and officials of the Presidency.
Those sacked and/or reassigned included Buhari’s Chief Security Officer, Kassim Idrissa, his ADC, Col. Mohammed Lawal Abubakar, his Chief Personal Security Officer, Abdulkareem Dauda, whom Yusuf, a son to Buhari’s niece, claimed to be threats to his life.
Daura managed to protect his son-in-law, Abdul Muktar, who works as Senior Special Assistant to the President in the office of the Chief of Staff.
