Presidency Tuesday lampooned former Head of State and National Leader of the Congress for Progressive Change, General Muhammadu Buhari, describing his comments on the attack on the Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero as irresponsible, reckless and opportunistic

It also cautioned against politicizing the attack on the revered traditional ruler, explaining that the attempt by Buhari, his political party, CPC and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is irresponsible.

Buhari and CPC had condemned the attack on the Emir of Kano, stating that "the portent of this latest security challenge is: the Nigerian state is not just under an ominous cloud of insecurity but all the citizens (under the nation's space) are also victims".
