In the memo entitled: “Immediate and medium term imperatives for President Muhammadu Buhari, and obtained by OrijoReporter from SaharaReporters, el-Rufai verbally attacked Babachir and Kyari describing them as inexperienced and clueless.
He said: “You (Buhari) appear to have neither a political adviser nor a minder of your politics.

“The two officials whose titles may enable them function as such generally alienate those that contributed to our success. The SGF is not only inexperienced in public service, but is lacking in humility, insensitive and rude to virtually most of the party leaders, ministers and governors.

“The Chief of Staff is totally clueless about the APC and its internal politics. At best, as he was neither part of its formation, nor a participant in the primaries, campaign and elections.

“In summary, neither of them has the personality, experience and the reach to manage your politics nationally or even regionally.”
