Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina has said that his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari did not promise to sell off the presidential fleet during his campaign for office in 2015.
Adesina also said the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Hassan-Kukah can’t prove that the President made such promise before his election.
The presidential spokesman was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday.
Kukah, in his 2023 Easter Message, had knocked the President, saying, “As you prepare to return to Daura or Kaduna, I do not know if you feel fulfilled or that you met the tall dreams and goals you set for yourself such as: ending banditry, defeating corruption, bringing back our girls, belonging to everybody and belonging to nobody, selling off our presidential fleet and travelling with us etc.”
However, reacting to Kukah’s claims, Adesina said the cleric is too partisan and is opinions coloured by politics.On fighting corruption and banditry, Adesina said Buhari has done his best in security the country and combating graft, adding that Nigeria was not where it was in 2015 when the President came into office.
