The Presidency has denied reports that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has dissolved the Interim Management Committee (IMC).

Although the Nigerian Senate recommended the dissolution of the IMC over the mismanagement of N40billion, there are reports in some quarters that the incumbent leadership of the commission has been dissolved.

The misleading report was credited to Femi Adesina, spokesman to Mr Buhari.

But in a Friday statement, Mr Adesina denied the trending information, saying it never emanated from him.

“A statement purportedly signed by me has been making the rounds that the Federal Government has dissolved the Interim Management Committee of the NDDC,” he said.

“Merchants of fake news in action. The communication did not emanate from the media office of the President. Please ignore,” the presidential aide added.
