Comfort Obi, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief/CEO of The Source Magazine has recommended that one Fatima Daura who released for public consumption the trending but embarrassing video about the President Muhammadu Buhari family imbroglio that played out in Aso Rock last year, should be flogged irrespective of her age.
The maverick journalistic veteran fumed in her Source column that Fatima by the infamous release of the clip was not only dis-respectful to the First Lady, but had desecrated the exalted person and office of Muhammadu Buhari as the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces and President of Nigeria.
She stated: “I don’t know how old Fatima Daura is, but his father, Mamman Daura, should flog her. She has dis-respected both President Muhammadu Buhari and, First Lady, Aisha Buhari. In the process, she has ,also, desecrated the Presidency. There is no precedence.
You must have heard of Mamman Daura. In the Buhari administration, he is large. He stands like a colossus. True or false, many things are attributed to him. He is President Muhammadu Buhari’s uncle (some say nephew) and friend. His daughter, Fatima, tells us they are closer than that. She says that they are not only related and friends, but were brought up together. For good measure, she adds, “They are twins”, so we understand how close.
No wonder, it is alleged, that Daura is one of the most powerful men around the President. They say he is the power behind the throne. They say he is very influential.
They say, with him, everything, almost, is possible. They say he is like a clearing house. When people, including the President’s wife, Aisha, talk about the Cabal in the Villa, fingers are pointed at him. He is the Headboy of the Cabal, they insist.
The man has not denied the crown.
He hardly talks. He is hardly seen at Presidential functions, or other social events. He works from behind. A quiet, smooth, operator. He does not stand in your face. Yet, he is what he is: Large. Influential. Powerful. (Text excluding headline courtesy of Daily Independent)
