Dele Momodu, Nigerian author and publisher of Ovation Magazine, says he weeps for President Muhammadu Buhari over his travails since the inauguration of his administration in 2015.
Momodu said this in reaction to the critical comments Aisha Buhari, the president’s wife, made about him recently, calling on Nigerians to stand up to the ‘two people’ who are allegedly hindering the progress of her husband’s administration.
It was not the first time Aisha would be making a critical statement about Buhari’s administration, particularly tackling those close to the president.
As Nigerians continue to mull over the import of Mrs Buhari’s revelation, Momodu took to his official Twitter handle to described Buhari as a man in “gilded cage”.
He said while he likes Buhari’s “humorous personality”, his leadership style leaves a lot to be desired.
“I like BUHARI as a simple, humorous personality but his leadership style leaves much to be desired and his cabal won’t let the competent people around him function,” Momodu Wrote.
“His wife has cried out endlessly… I weep for the man in the gilded cage. I wished he could liberate himself!”

He however didn’t go as far as saying how he wanted the president to ‘liberate himself’.
Any thoughts on how Buhari could do that?
