Presidency Denies Authorising El-Rufai To ‘Deal With’ Shehu Sani



The Presidency has disowned a letter which is said to be in circulation and alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari authorised Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai to deal with traitors in the All Progressives Congress (APC), especially Senator Shehu Sani.

In a statement signed on Sunday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, it was stressed that President Buhari knows nothing about the letter and will not authorise anyone to deal with any party member.

“The presidency wishes to distance President Muhammadu Buhari from a letter currently in circulation, which alleges that the President had authorised 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.

‘’Given President Buhari’s record, it is inconceivable that he would usurp the role of the party leaders and instruct anyone to punish a party member,’’ the statement read in part.

The presidency, therefore, appealed to members of the public to ignore false or unauthorised information intended to attribute to the President any action which is not in line with his character.
