The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has denied media reports claiming that the presidency has composed Buhari 2019 presidential support committee.
A statement purportedly issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Political Matters, Gideon Sammani, on Friday had named former Borno State Governor, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, as the Director General of the committee.
The statement had also listed other members of the committee.
But a statement yesterday by the Director Press
Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Lawrence Ojabo, denied the earlier report.
It reads “The attention of the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has been drawn to documents in circulation in print and social media purportedly issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Political Matters in the Presidency as public notice, announcing the names of certain individuals and appointing them into different roles under the BUHARI 2019 PRESIDENTIAL SUPPORT COMMITTEE, as well as soliciting for support.
“It has become imperative to clarify to all Nigerians and in particular to APC members that the said documents are unauthorised, misleading and should therefore be totally disregarded.
“Appropriate administrative measures are being put in place to ensure that such lapse does not recur in future.” it stated
