A cross-section of Nigerians has repeatedly inferred that Mr Daura heads the Aso rock ‘cabal’ that drive the administration of President Buhari.
When asked about his relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari, he said the President is his uncle.
“My father was their mother’s firstborn. Buhari is the last born,” he said.
When reminded that people had said he and Buhari grew up together and had always been together, he said: “yes…..it’s true”.
On whether he had been meeting Buhari and advising him on issues, he answered: “Yes, I do visit him to greet him. I do give him advice, but if he asked…I advise him. But I don’t go there on my own and insist I must do this or that.No.You don’t do that to the government.”
Commenting on the clamor for power shift, he said its high time the country unite and go for the most competent.
“This turn by turn, it was done once, it was done twice, it was done trice…
“It is better for this country to be one…it should be for the most competent and not for someone who comes from somewhere,” he said.
