A statement by Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu said the claim is unfounded and utterly ridiculous, confusing and misleading.
He said ordinary Nigerians are the backbone of Buhari's mandate and the only reason he ran for the office is to protect them against the rapacious merchants of corruption, who have held Nigeria back for decades.
He said the masses are solidly behind Buhari because he is not stealing their money and their future, that the President's enormous goodwill remains ever strong because the people are convinced the President is acting in their best interest, despite the temporary unintended consequences of reforms.
"President Muhammadu Buhari is far from isolation. He enjoys a very strategic relationship with ordinary Nigerians. This relationship is as solid a the proverbial rock," he said. "If Buba Galadima thinks that because he has no role and no job in this government that means president is isolated he is putting himself up to ridicule."
