The presidency has debunked claims making rounds that President Muhammadu Buhari congratulated Haruna Danzago as the duly elected chairman of APC in Kano state.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), Garba Shehu denied the endorsement in a statement, Saturday, obtained by Stallion Times.
The statement read:
The Presidency wishes to counter a public statement by one of the factions of the All-Progressives Congress in Kano State, that they have received the endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“This is blatantly untrue. This cannot happen when matters are awaiting adjudication by the courts.
“To be clear on this one, President Buhari has not endorsed any faction.
“His support is for the All-Progressives Congress as a Party, united and strong, and not of any faction,” Shehu clarifies.
