Tinubu, The Caged President 

Ndume said: “Mr President is not in the picture of what is happening outside the Villa.
He has been fenced off and caged. So many of us won’t go through the backdoor to engage him.
“Now they have stopped him from talking, and he doesn’t have public affairs managers, except his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, who writes press statements. Nigerians are getting very angry.


“The government is not doing anything about the food scarcity and it needs to do something urgently. We don’t have a food reserve.
There is an unavailability of food. The food crisis is the worst crisis that any nation can encounter.
If we add that to the security crisis, it will be severe.

The President Should Wake Up

“The President should wake up; it seems he isn’t in the picture of what is happening because he has been caged off. He has been fenced off by plutocrats.
He should open his doors and meet those who will tell him the truth.
“Unfortunately, the people who will tell him the truth won’t struggle to meet him. I am very worried not only for the President himself but myself.”

Ndume spoke on the crisis involving farmers and herders.
