Senior counsel and chairman of the senior counsel committee Ahmednasir Abdullahi has said the president’s speech at the sagana state lodge on Wednesday, February, 23 has zero effect on the deputy president as the news did not come as a surprise to many. The senior counsel added that the event was not news worthy as it was no big event.
While speaking on an interview at Citizen TV, Abdullahi said the president’s view on his deputy has been clearly known since back in 2018 through his actions towards the second in command. The commander in chief only stated the results of a long 4 year process.
” The president’s view on his Deputy president is known from 2018.. Nothing has changed, he Locked him out of his office, out of the cabinet, threw him to the dogs. That was a four year process. It’s the pattern we know, nothing changed today” stated Abdullahi.
Abdullahi further said the commander in chief had also shown crystal clear signs of endorsing the Azimio la Umoja aspirant Raila Odinga as his preferred successor.
” Raila was the president’s side kick since 2018. He was eating from the president’s hands in 2018,He was the president’s assistant from 2018, so nothing has changed” Said Abdullahi.
