Nigeria is the first and only country in the world to have 3 sitting presidents at once.
1. President Mamman Daura
2. President Abba Kyari
3. President Muhammadu Buhari
And yes, in that order please.

Abba Kyari committed treason but all the NSA can do is write a lily-livered memo to those who enabled him.
Once more, we are reminded that there's the presidency and The Presidency.

What if Abba Kyari leaked Monguno's letter to get him fired? You can be sure that Aso Rock is desperately in need of a fall guy in the face of escalating insecurity in the country. Abba Kyari will survive. Monguno will be treated as the guy who couldn't handle national security.

Abba Kyari is close to Buhari but so is Monguno, that is why he has the audacity to openly fight the mighty COS.
Monguno joined NDA with the blessings of Buhari as Borno Governor in 70s, Mongunos father was SMG to Buhari as Governor, so no be today dem know themselves https://t.co/R6W0o1rgC1

You see this letter? It accuses the chief of staff to the president, ABBA Kyari, of undermining national security. In law, that is treason.
But guess those facing charges of treason in Nigeria? Sowore, Bakare and Agba Jalingo for organizing a protest and whistleblowing. pic.twitter.com/j7iVSPgjmR
