vulnerable given his medical history. We advised Tunde not to see the President but he refused and forced his way into the Villa. He was able to get the First Lady’s aides arrested because of
the influence he wields. “We have a rule in the Villa that those who have
direct access to the President should reduce their engagement with people.

adhering to the rule but Tunde seems to be a law unto himself.” Tunde, who was nicknamed after Buhari’s late
