*Says Buhari has no issues with him
By Myke Uzendu
The Presidency last night described the outcry over the reported invitation by the Department of State Security (DSS) of the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Umar Ghali Na’Abba as a publicity stunt.
The Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who made the disclosure in a statement Sunday night asked the general public to ignore the former speaker’s antics.
He described as “flash in the pan, politicians and those who fabricate political relevance”, stressing that they don’t bother anyone.
The statement titled, “Ignore Na’Abba’s publicity stunt, President Buhari has no issues with him” further stated: “There are serious politicians who talk, and the Presidency responds because such politicians throw jibes which must get attention.
“Our findings have revealed that his invitation has nothing to do with the alleged irresponsible utterances by Umar Ghali Na’Abba, which in any case did not catch the attention of the Presidency, or of any serious politician for that matter.
“There are serious politicians who talk, and the Presidency responds because such politicians throw jibes which must get attention. Flash in the pan politicians and those who fabricate political relevance don’t bother anyone.
“We advise Na’Abba to distance the presidency from the situation he has found himself and sort himself out accordingly”.
