President Muhammadu Buhari had slammed Theophilus Danjuma, retired general, saying his opinion doesn’t matter than that of millions of Nigerians who voted for his reelection in 2019.
Buhari said this in an interview with The Interview by email released in Abuja on Saturday.
A press statement issued by Azu Ishiekwene, MD/editor-in-chief of The Interview, on Sunday, highlighted some of the president’s comments in the interview.
The president was asked how he felt about the vote of no confidence expressed by Danjuma during a recent book launch in Ibadan, but his(Buhari) response was: “And what is the vote of confidence of Nigerians in me, as expressed in the polls last year? That is what matters more, not the opinion of one man.”
Danjuma started recently that if he says what he knows about happenings in the government, Nigerians would lose sleep.
Reacting to the comment, which sparked a debate among Nigerians at the time, Buhari said his re-election was a vindication of his voters’ confidence and support for him and his government’s policies.
On his relationship with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, he said things were “perfect”, between them.
He was asked to rate his relationship with his deputy on a scale of one to 10. But the President replied: “Perfect. Or has he complained to you?”
