Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari has come under attack for criticizing his former boss, Atiku Abubakar.

Shehu worked under the Waziri of Adamawa between 2003 and 2015.

The Presidential spokesperson had on Thursday berated former President, Olusegun Obasanjo for endorsing Abubakar for the 2019 Presidential election at a meeting in Ogun State.

Shehu who described the meeting as a ‘well-rehearsed theatre’ was quoted as saying, “It is just eleven years ago that the former President and Vice President in their ugly fight for power accused each other of corruption. Nigerians are yet to forget all that.


“They will lose together. Listening to the prepared statement of the former President after the meeting showed the usual ego trip and “I know it all” character of Chief Obasanjo.”

In their reaction, Nigerians, who took to their social media expressed divergent opinions.

Here are some comments gathered from Twitter.

@Gerund90, ”You were Atiku’s media aide before he donated you to Buhari’s campaign. Now you want to deny your boss. Don’t worry, no food for you after May 29th.”

@olajidevincent, ”And Nigerians remembered that you supported the then VP and now candidate of @OfficialPDPNig. You supported him with all you got and even denied all corruption charges against him. Whatever you are doing today for @MBuhari, you did more for @atiku then.”

@Heightinfinity, ”If Nigerians can forget that your boss toppled democracy which he now enjoys through coup d’etat in 80s, then nothing stops them from forgetting whatever happened in the Obasanjo-Atiku regime.

@SKSolaKuti, ”Garba Shehu refused to author any press release when Atiku emerged as PDP chairman. He has found his voice when it concerns OBJ. Meanwhile, It is only in Nigeria that people say something is a non-issue in a press release on the issue that is a non-issue. Awon ode.”

@Veektohr1, ”Garba Shehu won’t be working in the villa if Atiku didn’t lend Buhari his media team before the 2015 elections and allowed Shehu to continue working for the president but now he wan dey insult am, na wa.”

@BaronvonGeoff1, ”Garba Shehu’s filibustering is all about stomach infrastructure. If Fayose hires him tomorrow he will tear Buhari to shreds.”

@JShoremekun, ”See how the event turns, The same Garba Shehu was the Media aide to Atiku at the time Atiku and OBJ fell out. He remained so until his current appointment by PMB. Now he is on the other side dishing out jab at his former boss. The coming days promise to be interesting!”’

@PapazLagos, ”Buhari should ask Garba Shehu to honorably resign. How do you have someone who worked as Atiku’s media aide all his life as your mouthpiece against his former boss?”

@rapuchukwu, ”Garba Shehu have you forgotten that Atiku was your boss for more than a decade. Don’t forget your roots.”

@EdreezGombawa, ”Will Garba Shehu call his former boss corrupt despite all the articles he wrote way back trying to clear his name? Will he resign and declare support to his former boss? Will he continue as Buhari’s spokesperson and go on a rigorous campaign to help his current boss win the election?”

@stopcorruption1, ”Politics Today: People are being blackmailed, what Doyin Okupe and Reubén Abatti did in their era is now being replicated by Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu, what Obasanjo did for Buhari, same he has just done for Atiku. Our politics is the same yesterday, today and forever more.”

@AyeeshaMusa1, ”And so my prediction about @GarShehu played out, he finally spoke bad against his master. This same Garba Shehu that adored, damn I love the Internet”

@iam_wilsons, ”It actually took Garba Shehu 4 days to write those jargons. Hmm, this @atiku man must be troubling these people in their coven.”

@MrTomide, ”How will Garba Shehu cope with attacking Atiku in favour of Buhari and defending Buhari against Atiku’s attacks now? May our loyalty never be tested.”

@YouthsForAtiku, ”Empowering someone at times is bad, just take a look at Garba Shehu, Atiku made you whatever you think you are today, but such is life, may those you uplift(if any) treat you back this way in Jesus name.”
