A former military administrator, Col. Yakubu Bako (rtd.) has said that no cabal can hijack the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

Bako, who ruled Akwa Ibom State during the Sani Abacha regime, said after all the advice from various quarters, the final decision on issues is taken by Buhari.

Speaking to The Sun, the ex-military leader noted that the President is a man of integrity who would not be told what to do by anybody.

Bako said: "Well, one thing I want you to take home is that under the Nigerian system, there is no government that we did not say that it had been hijacked.

"Just think back! All the past governments were accused of the same weakness of being hijacked by a cabal.

"If it is working well, it is the cabal that is making it work well and if it is not working well, it is the cabal that is making it not to work well.

"But each of the presidents we have had in the past or the president that we have now, they are all men of integrity that take decisions on their own.

"So, the issue of hijacking the administration does not arise. I believe that in the final analysis, the decision is the one taken by the president.

"I used to remember those days when we were in government house as military administrators, after all the advice from all the quarters, I would say look I am the number one citizen in this state and this what I want to do.

"No matter the number of policy advice or whatsoever, the president has the final say. This means that it is not likely that a government can be that hijacked by a cabal.

"He is the president and the buck stops on his table. You see even if he delegates power to his senior special advisers, to his assistants and aides, they are all working for him."
