The presidency has dismissed the “return or resign” agitation on President Muhammadu Buhari describing it as an illegal assembly organized to derail the war against corruption.
In a statement addressing members of the Center for Civil Society and Justice who staged a rally in support of the President in Abuja, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said that attempts to derail the war against corruption will not succeed.
The presidential spokesman further noted in the statement that as far the President is concerned he has done the needful by handing the reins of authority to the vice president.
He added that since the law of the country does not give a time limit for the president’s return, it cannot be imposed by a saber-rattling group or individual.
Shehu called on people planning to replace President Buhari to go through the democratic process in doing so and not through threats or agitations.
