President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he did not send out any letter to any Governor to deal with Senator representing Kaduna Central Shehu Sani or anyone else.
In a statement forwarded to DAILY POST by the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Garba Shehu, the president distanced himself from a letter currently in circulation, which alleged that he had authorized a Governor to “deal with traitors and disloyal members of APC, especially Senator Shehu Sani.”
The brief statement said, “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.
“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.”
