The Nigerian Presidency has debunked reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled appointments and memos which were approved by his former chief of staff late Mallam Abba Kyari.
A report emerged on Monday that President Buhari cancelled the appointments made by late Kyari after his new Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, resumed office.
The reports also claimed that the memos and appointments made by the late Kyari were done without the President’s approval, hence they were cancelled.
However, Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, in a statement on Tuesday, rubbished the report.
It read, “The attention of the Presidency has been drawn to media reports alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled a number of memos and appointments signed off by his former Chief of Staff.
“Not surprisingly, these reports have quoted unnamed sources.
“There is not a grain of truth in these reports and Nigerians should please ignore the insinuations behind them.
“President Buhari was duly re-elected by Nigerians in February 2019.
“He has not and will never cede to anyone else, that power and trust given to him by the Nigerian people.”
