Chief Mbazulike Amechi, an elder statesman and frontline nationalist has said President Muhammadu Buhari probably in serious problems as he is caged by some unnamed 8 powerful men with his cabinet and his party, All Progressives Congress, APC.
Chief Amechi in a recent interview with the DailySun Newspaper at his country home, Ukpor, Anambra State, speaks on the state of the state of the nation, insisting that Nigeria is at war and, therefore, should embrace a “declared or undeclared State of Emergency” to confront the “war” headlong.

The nonagenarian regrets that the setback in the fight against corruption is that “there is corruption in Buhari’s government.”
He reveals that Buhari is shackled by eight powerful men who may do something to him if he fails to toe their way, wondering what he will tell the three founding fathers of the nation( Zik, Awo, And Ahmadu Bello) when he finally meets them.
Below is an excerpt from the interview in relation to 8 powerfl men who have caged the President:
If you meet president Buhari today what will you tell him?
"I will tell him, my dear General, sorry Mr president, are you not worried about the state of the country, which we handed over to you on a platter of gold in May last year? What I will tell him depends on his attitude to the situation. I am not near enough to know how free he is because you may have a president who is shackled by lieutenants and colleagues in the party. And he, being a military man more than a politician may not understand the game very well. There are some people who get rich in the midst of crisis. "
"There are people who are empowering themselves by the present chaotic situation in the country. And if such people encircle a president, that president is in serious trouble. I don’t know if Buhari is in that state now. But there are some people even outside his cabinet who are very powerful. They have stolen so much money in this country that if he doesn’t take care they might even do something to him. There are such people. There are eight of them in his government; in his political party, who are so powerful in every way that if he doesn’t take their way they will do something to him."
Who are these powerful men?
You know them. You are a journalist.
I don’t know them.
