The Presidency has refuted reports circulating in some session of the media that the Department of State Service, DSS adviced President Muhammadu Buhari on the choice of Muslim – Muslim presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC.
The Presidency in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu, described the reports as false.
“We wish to advise well-meaning Nigerians to ignore a laughably puerile report by an apparently pirate online newspaper seeking to sow division and chaos on the choice of Governor Kashim Shettima as the Running Mate of our Party’s Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu”, he said.
“This so-called newspaper is like a deadly virus. Stay safe by keeping away from its toxic reports”, the statement added.
Recall that the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, had during the week announced Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate in the forthcoming general election.
