Why I gave y ministers free hand – Buhari


Former President Muhammadu Buhari has opened up on why he gave his ministers and other aides free hand during his tenure.

He has been accused of not checking them but leaving them to operate as they chose.

This is apart from the fact that he was said to have been hijacked by a cabal.

Even his wife, Aisha Buhari, lamented about this.

Buhari, however, on Monday, said there is no evidence to prove that his government was, at any point, hijacked by a cabal.⁣⁣
He claimed that if truly there was a cabal, Nigerians should have pointed it out. ⁣⁣

“Why didn’t they talk?” he queried in an interview aired on the Nigeria Television Authority late Monday.⁣⁣
The President said he never interfered with the jobs of his ministers. ⁣

⁣“I don’t have any evidence of anybody doing anything wrong and being allowed to walk away. No.⁣⁣
“No, because I don’t deliberately allow anybody to use public resources for himself. I allowed people to do their job as I understood it,” he noted.⁣⁣
Buhari noted that if he were to be president again, he would not do anything differently.
