Who Is Alhaji Mamman Daura ?

President Muhammadu Buhari is Mamman Daura’s Nephew although Daura is two and half years older than the president. The nephew-uncle relationship is described as extremely close and date back to childhood years.

Mamman Daura, who is considered to be even more powerful than Nigeria leader, has been playing a significant role through all the life of Buhari

According to Paden, Buhari’s biographer, Daura became life-long inspiration and confidant to the president

It’s no wonder that now with 73 years of close relations Buhari chooses Daura to be as close to him as possible

Malam Mamman Daura is a younger brother to General Muhammadu Buhari’s father, so he is an uncle to General Buhari. They are related by the bond of the blood. And that relationship is always very strong, particularly when they understand themselves with mutual respect.

Now that Buhari is in power as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, the relationship is said to have even taken another dimension.

When Buhari overthrew Shagari in 1983, Daura was one of the few people Buhari trusted enough to give principal advisory roles. By the late 1980s, he had succeeded Ibrahim Dasuki as the head of the African International Bank.

He later also served as chairman of the board of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and if there is anyone who Buhari always listened to and confided in over the years, it is Mamman Daura but many are now complaining that the relationship is getting too close for comfort and will affect all the policies of the Buhari administration which is already struggling to cope with economic and security challenges.
