Following the removing of Alhaji Umar Doguwa, as Chairman of Kano chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Presidency has warned in opposition to dragging the identify of President Muhammadu Buhari into the continuing politics.

Malam Garba Shehu, a presidential spokesman, gave the warning in an announcement issued in Abuja on Sunday.

Shehu described as false, the accusation that Buhari was behind the removing of the erstwhile APC chairman in Kano State.

The presidential aide was reacting to the allegations made at a press convention in Kano by a political assist group “Concerned Members of the APC in Kano State”.

He acknowledged that at no time did the president contain himself within the inner battle of any APC chapter within the nation, and would by no means achieve this.

“President Buhari wouldn’t danger his integrity to assist one facet in opposition to the opposite within the affairs the APC or some other political celebration anyplace within the nation.

“Anybody who knows the president’s principles would not believe any allegation linking him (Buhari) to interference in the election or removal of party leaders across the country”.

He famous that Buhari was accused previously of not taking management of the National Assembly by imposing some folks on the legislature as Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Shehu mentioned that it was ironical that the president would now be accused of abandoning these rules to order the removing of the chairman.

“I’m 100 per cent satisfied that this group, which is being related to the revered senator representing Kano, Rabiu Kwankwaso, didn’t search his permission earlier than dragging President Buhari’s identify into this matter.

“Kwankwaso knows President Buhari too well to reduce him to this level,” he mentioned.

The presidential aide due to this fact suggested the group to cease belittling the individual and workplace of the president by dragging his identify into their native celebration quarrels.

He added that it was unfair to assault the president over a difficulty he knew nothing about.
