Buhari: Don’t Believe The Stories That I Am Not In Charge

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday alerted the nation to a campaign of calumny he said was being cooked to show him as a dummy who is not in charge in the presidency.

In a statement issued on his behalf by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the Presidency said that a huge amount of money had been earmarked to feed the narrative of a Buhari having lost grip of the functions of his office.

The statement follows mutterings in some quarters about the health and consciousness of the president a claim that underlined the call by the factional minority leader of the House of Representatives, Kingsley Chinda for the impeachment of the president. That call was, however, rebuffed by the majority leader, Ado Doguwa.

The statement from the presidency read thus:

“The general public is hereby alerted to a smear campaign in the works against Mr President and his office, by disgruntled political elements in the country, who have been shopping for pliant online media that will serve as accomplices in their nefarious act.

“The game plan is to launch orchestrated campaign of calumny in the days ahead, in which President Muhammadu Buhari would be portrayed as not being in charge of the country, a narrative already started from a procured offshore medium by the instigators.

“Money and other attractive inducements are being dangled before the online media, and some of them are already complicit, cooking up stories with jejune and unsubstantiated allegations, all to sow seeds of discord and discontent in the country.

“Nigerians are urged to be wary and discerning in what they consume as news and special reports from such online media, as they are in cahoots with agents of destabilization, seeking ultimate political gains.

“President Buhari remains 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. This is already evident in infrastructure as seen in roads, rail, bridges, airports, and many other strides round the country. Agriculture is another worthy testimonial.

“The fight against corruption, insecurity, and retooling of the economy also proceed apace, and the Buhari Administration will not be distracted, and will continue to serve with heart and might, irrespective of all shenanigans.”
