President Muhammadu Buhari’s Juma’at service keeps throwing up some drama on the sidelines.
The last time, Senate President Bukola Saraki met face-to-face with Colonel Hameed Ali, head of Customs, who Saraki’s colleagues had harassed over not wearing the agency’s uniform. Both men shook hands over the controversy.
Today, it was the turn of Ibrahim Magu, head of Nigeria’s most visible and most hardworking anti graft agency and Lawan Daura, head of the nation’s secret agency, DSS who had sent a ‘damning’ report to the Senate that stopped Magu’s confirmation.
Magu had debunked the report as not reflective of the true situation of things.
President Buhari had since rebuffed the Senate demand that he replace Magu by retaining him in the post and Magu had since then gone ahead to perform even more salutary anti-corruption operations.
Well, Magu and Daura shook hands today, with National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno being the apparent peacemaker.
Back to President Buhari: he made time to chat with the younger generation of the family after the prayers at the Aso Villa Mosque
