The Director of Media and Publicity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mallam Garba Shehu has dismissed as fictional and uncharitable, a report by an online medium that the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari walked out some government officials from his residence in Daura, Katsina State.
In a statement today, Garba Shehu denied that any such incident took place as reported by the online newspaper.
“It was a false and an inaccurate presentation of the facts of what transpired when some government officials visited the President-elect at his Daura country home. It is totally out of General Buhari’s character to ask his visitors out.”
Garba Shehu said that the alleged visit by the Comptroller-General of the Customs, Abdullahi Inde only happened in the imagination of the said publication, saying: “he did not come visiting at any time.”
He said that the other reported incident involving Dr. Ade Abolurin, the Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, was inaccurately presented, adding that what happened was that the President-elect was already in another meeting when the Commandant-General came visiting and there was no way the President-elect could receive the new visitors.
“He was merely passing through the town and decided to stop by. As a matter of fact, words were promptly sent to the gentleman and his delegation that General Buhari was unable to meet them owing to the fact of an-going meeting that had preceded the time of their arrival.
“The president-elect welcomes positive suggestions from every Nigerian about how to bring progressive change to the country. “He will not walk out anyone who had come to discuss ways of developing the country. Courtesy and civility will not permit that to happen. It is equally not in his  character.
“It is therefore important to put the records straight that the President-elect will be a President for all Nigerians, irrespective of whether anyone currently holds a public office or not.” [myad]
