Senator representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Senator Isa Hamma Misau has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s enemies are very close to him.
Hamma Misau also accused Buhari’s associates of creating tension to distract him from delivering his campaign promises to Nigerians.
The Senator was speaking on Wednesday, while reacting to a letter by the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami exempting himself from appearing before the Senate.
Senator Misau noted that prior to the President arrival from his medical vacation, there were no attacks in any part of the country.
He said it was clear that President Buhari’s associates do not want him to succeed on his mandate to Nigerians.
He said, “If you look at the kind of advice people close to the government are giving the president, you will find out that they are trying as much as possible to distract the president from working.
“Over 50 days ago, the President went for medical vacation and the vice president was made acting president for 49 days. Did you hear about Niger Delta Avengers, Fulani herdsmen, media attack or tension in the country?
“Just two weeks of the president’s return, the people surrounding the president are creating tension in the country.
“I want Nigerians to know that the enemies of this government are very close to the government and the president.
“This tension that they are creating is just to distract the president from concentrating on his good plans for the Nigerian people.
“It is important for the people to know that the enemies of this government are within the circle of the presidency. I want to call on Nigerians to begin to pray for President Buhari because those that do not want him to succeed are very close to him.
“Look at the kind of letter that is coming from the attorney general of the federation? Somebody that is supposed to bring peace and stability between the executive and legislature is trying to create a problem between both arms of government.
“If the attorney general can write this type of letter to the Senate, then imagine the kind of advice he will give president Buhari.
“Therefore, the people surrounding the president are his enemies.”
