Read Time:1 Minute, 39 Second

The presidency has reacted to an online report alleging that President Muham­madu Buhari had called for the removal of Festus Keya­mo from the campaign coun­cil of the All Progressive Con­gress presidential standard bearer, Ahmed Bola Tinubu. 

Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu debunked the report, saying the news that President Mu­hammadu Buhari has called for the removal of Festus Key­amo, SAN as a spokesperson of the APC Presidential Cam­paign Council is fake news.

Shehu noted in a terse statement that both President Buhari and the Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are happy with the job Keyamo is doing, and with the general set up of the impending campaign, which has already become an example for other parties.

We are aware that con­spiracy theories are being hatched with a ripple effect to defame our party leaders and hold back the campaign. Supporters of our candidates should not pay attention to “news” from these fountains of false narratives.

The online report had al­leged that the President and members of the Aso Rock ca­bal called for the removal of Festus Keyamo as the spokes­person for the All Progres­sives Congress (APC)/Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidential Campaign Council.

The report also alleged that Buhari and members of the cabal accused Keyamo of always de-marketing the cur­rent administration despite being a serving minister.

The report said the Presi­dent accused him (Keyamo) of always de-marketing his re­gime, describing the govern­ment in which he is a minister as a failed regime. He has been described as a loose cannon who is daily demarketing his regime as a failed regime. The cabal members are not hap­py,” the source said.

For instance, on Sunday, during an interview on Chan­nels Television, Keyamo said Nigerians are hungry and can’t wait to have a new lead­er who would satisfy their hunger.
