Buhari never said he won’t hand over to Tinubu – Presidency

The Presidency has denounced what it described as outrageous and fake news, quoting President Muhammadu Buhari as saying he won’t hand over to President-elect Asíwájú Bola Tinubu.

The President in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said it was impossible to talk about not handing over to Tinubu after campaigning “vigorously” for him.

“The government is already in transition phase. The Transition Committee, made up of representatives of the outgoing administration and the incoming one is meeting on an almost daily basis planning the handover to the Tinubu/Shettima administration. Thirteen committees as offshoots of the main committee, some, to arrange military drills and pulling out of President Buhari, are either all at work or soon to be. So far, everything is going very well and there is no indication of any hitches.

“As for the President, the Daura community has begun their preparations to receive their son back after the successful administration of the country for two terms of eight years. He, for his part, is eager to return home to enjoy his retirement,” the statement read in part.
