News+: No disorganization in Buhari’s govt – Garba Shehu


President Buhari’s Special Media Aide, Garba Shehu, says there is no crisis under the present government.

Mr Shehu stated this when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

This comment comes on the heels of reports suggesting that there might be a dilemma within the present government following the manner in which some ministers and head of parastatals have been behaving towards lawmakers running probes into the operations of various commissions and ministries.


In the last few weeks, there have been reports of ministers and heads of commissions failing to appear before committees set by the National Assembly to look into certain ills within some parastatals.

There have also been situations in which some Senators walked the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr Festus Keyamo, out of a meeting, while the NDDC Boss, Professor Pondei, and others walked out on Lawmakers at the House Of Reps investigative hearing.

In reaction to these developments, President Buhari read the riot act to ministers and heads of the Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) on the relationship with the National Assembly.


“Ministers and all heads of Departments and Agencies should at all times conduct themselves in ways that will not undermine the National Assembly as an institution, its leadership, and members,” President Buhari stated.

Building on this premise, Mr Garba Shehu stated that where wrongdoings are detected within the present government, they are always addressed.

Mr Shehu further assured that if there is a mistake or wrongdoings by ministers or appointees, President Buhari would address it appropriately.
