The Presidency has distanced itself from allegations that it has anything to do with the invitation extended to former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Na’Abba by the Department of State Service (DSS) on account of his alleged comments at President Muhammadu Buhari.
Preliminary feedback received by the Presidency seem to indicate that the invitation of Umar Ghali Na’Abba, was in no way connected to his utterances regarding the State of Affairs of the Country, President Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu said.
“Mr. President realizes the value of having an active opposition party having emerged through that process as well.
“Mr. President has consistently made it his wish to deliver an electoral process that is free and fair that ensures that the electorate is given a free hand for their votes to count. Anything short of such a process would be counter-productive.
He added that, “As the nation continues to pull together to confront this common enemy that has no regard for race, religion, language or ethnic grouping, we once again encourage citizens to engage in discourses that can help support our vision of a united Nigeria, that maintains food security, secures it citizens and provides a pipeline of opportunities to our teeming youthful population.
