Presidency Denies Buhari’s Connection To El-Rufai Purported Letter


The Presidency has denied that President Muhammadu Buhari had anything to do with a letter making the news that President had given a Governor or anyone else the authorization to punish APC aspirants who has their loyalty in question.

The Presidency made this clarification in a press statement made available to Naija News by the senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.

The alleged letter making the round portrayed the president of giving instruction to a sitting governor to “deal with traitors and disloyal members of APC, especially Senator Shehu Sani.”

Shehu inisted that the president was oblivious of the purported letter, let alone authorising anyone to deal with any party member.

Shehu added that President Muhammadu Buhari would not go contrary to the role of the party leaders and instruct anyone to punish a party member.

The Presidency, therefore, appealed he general public, especially members of the press, to ignore false or unauthorized information intended to attribute to the President actions which is not in line with his character.
