The wife of the Nigerian President suggested on Monday that some persons in the palace were praying for her husband to die, but to their disappointment, he would soon return home and sack those who wished to see him dead.

Mrs. Aisha Buhari’s comments were the first clear indication of some palace intrigues that seemed to lay bare the fact that some people close to President Muhammadu Buhari were beginning to see the sick leader as a liability rather than the asset he was in 2015 when he made history by defeating for the first time a seating Nigerian President.

President Buhari has been in London, United Kingdom, since May 7, treating himself of an undisclosed ailment. He’s not been seen in public since then, prompting calls from some members of the opposition, including Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state that the President be sacked from office.

In a statement on Monday to SIMON ATEBA NEWS, Mr. Fayose called on the National Assembly to invoke Section 144 of the Nigerian constitution and declare President Buhari incapacitated.

Mr. Fayose recently made some eyebrow-raising disclosures that the Prsident had been on life support since June 6 and was dying in London.

He’s known to be spreading fake news, raising false alarms and circulating bogus allegations he’s often unable to back up with evidence.

Still, his calls for Mr. Buhari to be removed were similar to those by several others around and outside the Presidential palace.

On Monday, Aisha Buhari said in a Facebook post that the prayers of Nigerians who wished her husband well had been answered, and those who wished him dead would be dealt with when he returns.

Her comments were in reply to Senator Shehu Sani from Kaduna state, who said in a Facebook post that the palace was divided with ‘weaker animals’ wishing the President to return and stronger ones wishing him dead or wondering whether he would come back one day.

He said: “Prayer for the absent Lion King has waned; Until he’s back then they will fall over each other to be on the front row of the palace temple.

“Now the hyenas and the jackals are scheming and talking to each other in whispers; still doubting whether the Lion King will be back or not. Now the Lion king is asleep and no other dare to confirm if he will wake up or not.

“Its the wish of the Hyenas that the Lion King never wakes or come back so that they can be kings. Its the Prayers of the weaker animals that the Lion King comes back to save the Kingdom from the Hyenas, the wolves and other predators”.

Following those comments Mrs. Buhari shared his Facebook post and added her own comments:

“God has answered the prayers of the weaker Animals, The Hyena’s and the Jackals will soon be sent out of the kingdom. We strongly believe in the prayers and support of the weaker animals.  Long live the weaker animals, Long live Nigeria,” she said.
