Lawal Idris, who has been an ally of President Muhammadu Buhari for 45 years, in an interview with Daily Trust said that the Muhammadu Buhari government has been hijacked. He claimed that the Buhari administration was hijacked by Mamman Daura. ''Number one, when Buhari was sworn-in, he swore by the Qur’an that he would be fair and we believed him. He said he belonged to no one but I knew he belong to Mamman Daura, Abba Kyari and Mamman are failed bankers and failed industrialists. As at 29 November, 2016, Abba was still a Director of Exxon Mobil; Abba is Buhari’s Chief of Staff, he is a member of the Board of Directors of NNPC what a super brainy, workaholic? ''And Abba is Mamman’s poodle; whatever Abba is doing, it is Mamman that controls it. I know it and they know that I know it and they know me very well.
