The president’s wife made this revelation while speaking at a national women leadership summit organised by Project 4+4 for Buhari & Osinbajo 2019, a political group.

In a statement on Friday, the chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stated that Nigeria is a country of over 200 million people, yet don’t know who runs the country.

He also stated that Nigerians can no longer claim that the country is safe and secure following the International Global Terror Index ranking Nigeria as the “third most terrorised country in the world”.

Fani-Kayode wrote: “The First Lady’s claim that the Federal Government has been highjacked by two men and that her husband’s supporters should find the guts to confront and wrestle back power from them is alarming. Exactly who is running our nation? Almost 200 million people and we don’t know who runs our country.

“Some say it is a clone, others say it is a body double, others say it is a strange man that cannot even speak his own native Fulani language whilst the First Lady says it is two powerful and faceless men who have somehow usurped power and rendered the President impotent.

“Whatever the case Nigerians deserve answers. It is time for President Buhari to conduct a national television broadcast and at least attempt to clear the air. Nigeria has become a laughing stock and the butt of cruel “clone” jokes all over the world over the last few days. It is unbearable and shameful.

“Meanwhile how any right-thinking person can still claim that Nigeria is safe and secure after the International Global Terror Index has just announced that we are the “third most terrorised country in the world” really baffles me.

“What we are experiencing is the peace of the graveyard.”
