Unic Press UK: The Nigerian presidency has denounced the reports from some news media entities (Unic Press UK excluded) that President Buhari gave approval to the Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai to severely sanction Senator Shehu Sani (APC – Kaduna Central District).
In a statement Sunday, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said:
“The presidency wishes to distance President Muhammadu Buhari from a letter currently in circulation, which alleges that the President had authorized a Governor or anyone else for that matter to “deal with traitors and disloyal members of APC, especially Senator Shehu Sani. We wish to confirm that the President is not aware of any such letter, let alone authorising anyone to deal with any party member. In the light of above, we would like to appeal to the general public, especially members of the press, to ignore false or unauthorized information intended to attribute to the President any action which is not in line with his character.”
