THE Presidency has refuted reports that President Muhammadu Buhari called for the removal of the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo as the spokesperson for the presidential standard bearer of the All Progressives Congress campaign council.
An online newspaper had published a story titled “Buhari calls for Keyamo’s removal as APC Presidential Campaign spokesperson over constant demarketing of administration”
Reacting to the report, presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu in a tweet on his official Twitter page described the report as a fake news.
His words, “The news that President Muhammadu Buhari has called for the removal of Festus Keyamo, SAN as a spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign Council is fake news.
“Both President Buhari and the Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are happy with the job Keyamo doing, and with the general set up of the impending campaign, which has already become an example for other parties.
“We aware that conspiracy theories are being hatched with a ripple effect to defame our party leaders and hold back the campaign. Supporters of our candidates should not pay attention to “news” from these fountains of false narratives,” he stated.
