‘They Want to Claim Buhari is Not In Charge’, Presidency Cries Out
The presidency in Nigeria on Wednesday said there was an “orchestrated campaign of calumny to portray President Muhammadu Buhari “as not being in charge of the country.”
The presidents’ media adviser, Femi Adesina, said in a statement on Wednesday that the narrative had already “started from a procured offshore medium by the instigators”.
Analysts have said it was a vague and sweeping claim that could be just preemptive.
Adesina said “the smear campaign in the works against the President and his office would be launched by “disgruntled political elements in the country” who had been shopping for “pliant online media that will serve as accomplices in their nefarious act.”
He said the plot was to cook up stories with “jejune and unsubstantiated allegations” to sow seeds of discord and discontent in the country.
He said Nigerians should be be wary and discerning in what they consumed as news and special reports from such “online media, as they are in cahoots with agents of destabilization, seeking ultimate political gains.”
He assured that Buhari remained focused and single-minded in his determination to serve the country to the best of his ability, bringing change to different facets of our national life.
