Presidency speaks on Buhari selecting APC convention sub-committee members

The Presidency on Thursday said President Muhammadu Buhari will not interfere in the affairs of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

It stated this while reacting to reports that it substituted some names of the members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Convention Planning Sub-Committees.

A statement by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina described the reports as false.

The statement sent to DAILY POST reads, “We are constrained to deny media reports alleging that the Presidency substituted or smuggled in some names of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Convention Planning Sub-Committees.

“Nothing in the allegation can be further from the truth in every material particular. For the umpteenth time, we wish to reiterate President Muhammadu Buhari’s position that he will not interfere in party affairs or matters before the law courts.

“It ought to have been obvious by now to discerning Nigerians that it is not in the nature of this President to go against the provisions of the country’s constitution let alone his party’s constitutional provisions.

“It is, therefore, disingenuous to attribute every perceived infraction in activities of party or government appointees to the President’s desk.”
