Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to a statement by President Muhammadu Buhari stating that he did not send out letter to any Governor to deal with him.
Buhari had in a statement forwarded to DAILY POST by his Senior Special Assistant, Garba Shehu distanced himself from a letter currently in circulation, which alleged that he had authorized a Governor to “deal with traitors and disloyal members of APC, especially Senator Shehu Sani.”
The brief statement said, “We wish to confirm that the President is not aware of any such letter, let alone authorising anyone to deal with any party member.Given President Buhari’s record, it is inconceivable that he would usurp the role of the party leaders and instruct anyone to punish a party member.
“In the light of above, we would like to appeal to the general public, especially members of the press, to ignore false or unauthorized information intended to attribute to the President any action which is not in line with his character.”
Reacting to Buhari’s statement, Shehu Sani applauded him for clearing the air.
According to him, he never believed Buhari would give such directions.
In a post on his Twitter page, the Kaduna lawmaker wrote: “Thank you President Buhari for clearing the air on the calumnious memo
“Even though I never believed that the President can ‘Direct’ a Governor to recall a disloyal Senator. Another executive lie ‘bursted’.”
