Paden in ‘Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of leadership in Nigeria’, a biography on President Muhammadu Buhari, which was recently launched, stated that the family of Ibrahim Dasuki and the Buhari extended family have been linked by marriage for more than four decades.
Debunking rumour of alleged feud between them in Chapter 15 of the book, Paden said, “It is beyond the scope of this study to assess all the back stories of the relationship between Buhari and Dasuki. Suffice it to say that the so-called grudge between the two has never really existed.
“Dasuki is twelve years younger than Buhari, even though Dasuki did participate in the 1985 countercoup. The family of Ibrahim Dasuki and the Buhari extended family have been linked by marriage for more than four decades.”
