Rivers Govt. inaugurates N3bn road project

16 July 2015, 09:23

Lagos - The Presidency has rejected the claim by a radio station that President Muhammadu Buhari expressed anti-Igbo sentiments in a recent interview.

Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media and Publicity), said the report by the BBC Hausa Service is completely false, malicious and slanderous."
"The voice being ascribed to President Buhari in the recording repeatedly played back by the pirate radio station is definitely not the President's and the claim that the station got the recording from a BBC interview is totally untrue, Shehu said.

He said no one should be deceived by the pirate radio station's alleged hate propaganda against the President.
He said Buhari had not had any interview with the BBC's Hausa Service since his assumption of office as alleged by the "agents of disunity behind the pirate radio station's inflammatory and divisive broadcasts."
"President Buhari is the President of all Nigerians and will continue to treat all citizens on the basis of fairness, equality and equity," Shehu added.
She said Nigerians should therefore ignore all propaganda designed to sow seeds of discord among them and promote a separatist agenda against national unity, solidarity and progress.
