The Presidency has reacted to the ultimatum given it by the Nigerian elders forum, dismissing it as the shedding of crocodile tears by selfish leaders.
Reacting to the communique on the state of insecurity in the country, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said affected leaders felt alienated after a transparent and accountable system halted their disproportionate survival on resources of the state.
”The Presidency refers all the purveyors of falsehood to a State House press release published a few days ago and signed by Special Adviser to the President, Femi Adesina,” he said
”We advise Nigerians to read Adesina’s statement if they haven’t yet, or re-read it for better understanding of the efforts to ensure peace in the country.
”It is sad and misleading for anyone to say that President Buhari had not responded to the security challenges in the country.
”No one can honestly say that President Buhari is doing nothing about security.
”It’s just a fake news item being peddled by selfish politicians with vested interests in keeping Nigerians incensed, and it risks being entrenched as reality if we don’t educate ourselves with the truth,” he concluded.
