The Presidency Thursday in Abuja denied media reports that it had substituted some members of the National Convention Sub-Committees of the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying President Muhammadu Buhari would never interfere in party affairs.
In a statement, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, insisted that the president would never do anything contrary to the provision of the constitution.
“We are constrained to deny media reports alleging that the Presidency substituted or smuggled in some names of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Convention Planning Sub-Committees.
“Nothing in the allegation can be further from the truth in every material particular. For the umpteenth time, we wish to reiterate President Muhammadu Buhariâ€™s position that he will not interfere in party affairs or matters before the law courts.
“It ought to have been obvious by now to discerning Nigerians that it is not in the nature of this President to go against the provisions of the countryâ€™s constitution let alone his partyâ€™s constitutional provisions.
“It is, therefore, disingenuous to attribute every perceived infraction in activities of party or government appointees to the president’s desk,” the statement said.
