After days of raging reports on the social media and in some newspapers that President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled 150 memos as well as some appointments allegedly made by his late Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, without authorization, the Presidency has finally reacted.
Responding to the reports Tuesday night, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity,Mallam Garba Shehu said the stories were fake and untrue.
Shehu further denied insinuations that President Buhari ceded power to some individuals.
According to him, “The attention of the Presidency has been drawn to media reports alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled a number of memos and appointments signed by his former Chief of Staff. Not surprisingly,these reports have quoted unnamed sources.
“There is not a grain of truth in these reports and Nigerians should please ignore the insinuations behind them. President Buhari was duly re-elected by Nigerians in February 2019.
“He has not and will never cede to anyone else, that power and trust given to him by the Nigerian people.”
