The Presidency has denied substituting members of the APC Convention Planning Sub Committees, insisting that President Muhammadu Buhari’s position remains that he will not interfere in party affairs or matters before the law courts.
A statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity) said, in full:
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.
