Nigerian Citizen Action Group in collaboration with The National Association of Polytechnic Students, NAPS, has called for immediate sack, investigation, and prosecution of Mr. Sabiu Yusuf, the Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari for questionable wealth and suspicious activities under cover of the Nigeria presidency.
The bodies made the call today 14 July 2020 in a press statement made available to AFRICA SECURITY INVESTIGATION.
According to the statement signed by the President National Association of Polytechnic Students, Mr. Sunday A. Asuku and Engr. S. A Lukman, spokesperson, Nigerian Citizen Action Group.
“In as much as we wish to categorically establish that this call is born out of our sincere and moral concern for the reputation and integrity of our dear President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic Of Nigeria H. E Muhammadu Buhari whose effort and commitment to get rid of corruption in Nigeria governance and administration is becoming a mockery and charade by the activities of some few elements in his cabinet.
“The Nigerian Citizens Action Group (NCAG) a coalition of Civil Society Organisations and Student Bodies hereby made this important call of national purpose and public interest.
“Mr. Sabiu Yusuf, who is the Personal Assistant to President Buhari, has been reported by some section of Online media in most recent times as the richest young man. Nigeria Power class and political space, an under 30 years old young man with an unprecedented cash balance in local and foreign banks and choice properties within the heart of Abuja, Dubia, and other foreign countries.
“We are optimistic that our call is honorably attended to on or before 14 working days starting from this day of press release otherwise we shall take to the street of Abuja in protest to press home this noble demand as, concern and conscious citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Pointing out that Mr. President’s Old age must not be taken as advance to milking Nigeria treasury by this greedy, corrupt, and unpatriotic element in the government.
It was also alleged by the groups that Mr. Sabiu uses the opportunity of being in charge of President Buhari’s personal and official phone lines (phones) to send text messages to heads of Ministries, Agencies and departments seeking monetary/contract favours for himself, associates, family and friends in pretense as a directive from Mr president, all to perfect is sharp practices to amass wealth.
“This among other alleged suspicious fraudulent, corrupt, and pretense acts carried out by Mr. Tunde Shabiu to accumulate questionable wealth for himself under the coverage of Nigeria Presidency, in a nation where we borrow to fund budget, high rate of unemployment and poverty at the peak point,
It’s therefore important for Mr. President to sack Sabiu now, with antigraft agency’s immediate arrest, investigation and prosecution accordingly. those who know Tunde before the emergence of President Buhari in 2015 will doubt the questionable and speedy accumulation of wealth and lifestyle within 5 years.
