”That was how President Buhari always and frequently came to my private house here in Ikoyi with his entourage which included that Nasiru and others”.
”At a point, he “Buhari” was practically living in my house, under my roof. The room he was sleeping was just 6-7 steps from my own private room. I was building his confidence because he didn’t have it”.
