“I Never Directed El-Rufai To Recall Shehu Sani” – Pres. Buhari Denies Claims

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday said there was no truth in a claim that he asked the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el – Rufai, to punish Senator Shehu Sani by initiating his recall from the Senate.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu , said this in a statement made available to journalists.

El – Rufai had, in a leaked memo, warned Buhari that there will be serious consequences if the senator representing Kaduna Central should win a return ticket to the Senate in 2019.

The governor claims in the memo that at a point , Buhari had directed him to recall Sani because of his many sins.

But Shehu said neither did the President receive the leaked memo, nor did he ask el – Rufai to deal with the senator.

He said Buhari would never usurp the role of party leaders by directing that a party member should be punished .

The statement read:-

“The Presidency wishes to distance President Muhammadu Buhari from a letter currently in circulation, which alleges that the President had authorised a governor or anyone else for that matter to ‘ deal with traitors and disloyal members of APC , especially Senator Shehu Sani . ’

“We wish to confirm that the President is not aware of any such letter , let alone authorising anyone to deal with any party member.

“Given President Buhari ’ s record, it is inconceivable that he would usurp the role of party leaders and instruct anyone to punish a party member.

“In the light of above , we appeal to the general public , especially members of the Press, to ignore false or unauthorised information intended to attribute to the President any action which is not in line with his character.”
