In a tweet via his Twitter page on Thursday, March 23, Onigbinde made reference to several cases in the presidency to butress his point.
There have been several media reports that President Buhari is not in charge of his government, with some saying the government has been hijacked by a few people.
These rumours were validated by the wife of the president Hajiya Aisha Buhari who told the BBC Hausa service in an interview last year, that her husband does not personally know most of the people he appoints in his administration.
She also raised concerns over the possibility that some people have started causing division within the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
A month ago, Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai alluded to the fact that there was a cabal in the presidency, but quickly diassociated himself from rumours that he was part of them.
Last week, a 30-page memo to the president by the governor leaked to the media, suggesting that the governor was fed up with President Buhari’s administration.

Similarly, legal practitioner, Kingsley Omose has stated that President Buhari will be remembered as a man who led Nigeria twice with little or no positive legacies to show for it.
Omose who made his stance known via his Twitter handle, said President Buhari is dismantling his own myth, aura and legacies.
