APC Presidential Campaign Organization has described the media reports as false and misleading.
The Director of media and publicity of APC presidential campaign, Garba Shehu, on Thursday said Buhari never said that.
The statement reads:
“His Excellency, the President-elect is still waiting to be sworn in on May 29. After the ceremony, he would need time to study the security situation and plan strategically with the security chiefs as to the way forward. Time is of essence here.Therefore, President Buhari didn’t and wouldn’t peg the decimation of terrorism from the country’s territories to just two months.
The General was unequivocal about cleansing Boko Haram from our land; he would do a good job of it by giving a final, permanent push to rid Nigeria of unscrupulous elements. “The President-elect said that much to the world media including the British Broadcasting Corporation and Cable News Network.He never put a time-frame to when he would eliminate terrorists. It would be unfair and mischievous for someone to ascribe to him what he hasn’t said.”
