In an interview with The Osasu Show, Buhari described reports of overbearing influence on him by some individuals as mere speculations.
Asked to react to a report that “Alhaji Mamman Daura is the true president”, he said: “I don’t know where they get their news from.
“I stood for the election, I visited every local government in Nigeria, I travelled by road, by air, and so on, and we had one of the most credible election. So whoever feels he has lost somehow is his own problem, I have no problem.”
Weeks after the interview was granted, Aisha Buhari made headlines for insinuating that her husband’s government had been hijacked.
