President Muhammadu Buhari has described as false news reports that he has cancelled appointments and memos his late Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, initiated while alive.

The report published by a national daily claimed that about 150 appointments and memos approved by the late official is been perused obviously for reversal.

But in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, the president denied such existence, claiming he has never ceded power since elected, re-elected and not considering doing so in the future.

“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,” Mr Shehu said in a statement Tuesday evening.

“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,” he added.
