Buhari’s Campaign Body Guards Protest Exclusion

Bodyguards who worked for Muhammadu Buhari in the months leading up to the 2015 general elections have protested against their exclusion by those they described as cabals in the government.

They said about 16 months after the 2015 presidential elections, the only reward they got for their efforts during the campaigns was N20,000 paid to them in January and February 2015.
Spokesperson for the group, Badiru Olabiyi Balogun and three other members, Audu Odemeho, Kasim Abdullahi Hassan and Zubairu Idris, at a press briefing on Thursday August 11, alleged that “some cabals have hijacked the president”.

They said many of the key actors in Buhari’s government, who did not work for him, have denied them access to him, warning that their marginalisation constitutes security threat to the nation.

Part of the statement which was released by Balogin read: “Right now, we need Mr. President to appreciate our hard work for him. We need Mr. President to recognise the fact that we have lost everything because we championed the change agenda. “Definitely, it is not just our exclusion that is a security threat to the country. Anything that would deny any man his dues and legitimate rights can be concluded to mean a security threat because when you don’t get your dues and what is rightly due for you, then you are opened to a lot of temptations. So, we are indeed a security threat”.
