Isa Funtua: It’s An Insult To Suggest Me As Abba Kyari’s Replacement by valentineuwakwe(m): 9:41pm On Apr 21, 2020
Alhaji Isa Funtua, a close ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, has given reason he cannot replace the late Abba Kyari as the president’s Chief of Staff.

Funtua, while reacting to reports that he was likely a replacement for the Office of the Chief of Staff, said it is an insult to his personality.

Speaking to BBC Hausa, the elder statesman said he should be employing people and not struggling for government appointments.

The politician maintained that appointments like Chief of Staff should be for young people not his age mates, adding that Nigerians should stop making caricature of public offices

He was quoted as saying, “I heard people mentioning my name to replace Abba Kyari but I take the story as an insult instead. I have once worked with the government in the 80s, worked with white men and also was once a Minister of the Federal republic. For someone to mention my name for that position is an insult especially for a man who served as a minister nearly 40 years ago and out of government.

“I should be employing people now, not trying to struggle for government appointments. At my level and age, people should first see if I am fit to serve and see if I am strong enough and if I am up-to-date with current realities of governance.

“Even if they approach the president with my name, he knows he cannot ask me to serve at this age. For God’s sake, you mean at my age, I should be waking up at 8am to go to work? Haba, I am way passed that lifestyle. It’s for people like you (referring to the BBC journalist) and other much younger persons. We should stop making caricatures of public offices simply because of the sake of getting appointments,” he said.

Meanwhile, a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Monday, listed Isa Funtua as a member of President Muhammadu Buhari’s “cabal”.

In his piece, Fani-Kayode hinted that there were powerful people around the president.

“Some say he was the leader of the cabal. This is a cabal in which seasoned and skillful old war horses, ancient northern political veterans and warriors like Mamman Daura, Zangon Daura, Mahmoud Tukur, Ismaila Isa Funtua, Lawal Daura, Baba Gana Kingibe and many others.”

The man that CBN Gov bends to listen to?

This guy was angry because they said he belonged to the cabal.

He said him alone is a cabal.

To ask him to be Replace Kyari will really be an insult.

Adamu Adamu was chosen by them.

I use to laugh so hard when people said Kyari was the head of the cabal, and thereby made all the presidential decisions.

The cabal appointed him, send him on errands on behalf of Buhari. That's all.

Though once in a while, when the cabal is not interested in a particular issue, he would use such opportunity to advance his own interest.

As for Funtua, the chief financier of the Buhari phenomenon, he is as powerful as Mamman Daura. Daura has the edge because he is Buhari"s nephew.

How can the man who appointed Abba Kyari be asked to take his position, it's actually a demotion.
Issa Funtua owns a company called Bullet Construction which built the Federal Secretariat Complex in Abuja and other infrastructure, it was said that he was given open cheques by the military juntas in his contract awards, but he also employed thousands of workers in his company. The office of the Secretary to Govt of the Federation (SGF) is called Bullet House till date.
He is also among those who were dashed Oil Blocks for free in the Niger Delta.
He is the main financier of the CABAL and even tells Emefiele how much he wants CBN to sell Forex to him which former Emir Sanusi Lamido said he refused to join in that multiple exchange rate scheme. That's the kind of corruption that happens under this regime which Buhari with all his so called integrity cannot control.

Without sentiments this man knows what he is saying...

Are you the secretary of " The Cabal" or their treasurer ?

You used to laugh

And you know all this how ?

Fufu overdose?

Truth is you sit down with your phone and type ideas and fantasies that seem good to you with no basis in ANYTHING
