- President Buhari has disassociated himself from El-Rufai claims that he authorised anyone to deal with Senator Shehu Sani
- Garba Shehu said the president is not in receipt of any of such letter from the governor
- According to Shehu, it is inconceivable that he would usurp the role of the party leaders and instruct anyone to punish a party member
The presidency has reacted to the circulation of a letter purportedly addressed to President Muhammadu Buhari on the return of the senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, by the state governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
The senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, said the president is not in receipt of any of such letter.
Shehu in a series of tweet on Sunday, October 7, said the president wishes to distance itself from the letter in circulation.
Shehu added at no time did President Buhari as claimed in the letter authorised anyone, not even a governor to "deal with traitors and disloyal members of APC, especially Senator Shehu Sani."
The presidential aide said Buhari is not aware of any such letter, let alone authorising anyone to deal with any party member.
He further urged the general public to to ignore false or unauthorized information intended to attribute to the President to any action which is not in line with his character.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state, allegedly wrote a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari listing the sins of Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna central district.
The governor in the letter dated October 2, reportedly said President Buhari directed him to initiate the recall of Sani, senator representing Kaduna central district, over acts of contempt and disloyalty.
He also said Sani through his reckless actions made the Senate deny Kaduna state of $350m world Bank loan.
