The Presidency has distanced itself from the ‘I stand with Buhari (#Istandwithbuhari)’ advocacy group, asking that the group should immediately stop claiming any alliance with the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration.
The group, which was formed just months into Mr. Buhari’s tenure and had begun canvassing support for the president, was planning to hold a 9 million man affirmation march on March 31, which it tagged ‘Anti-Corruption Day’, in support of the ongoing war against corruption.
However, in a statement on Friday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, the Presidency also demanded that the persons behind the group should stop dropping Mr. Buhari’s name and that of his wife, Aisha, to promote themselves and their activities.
The statement read: “Among other reasons, we have found it necessary to distance the Presidency from the #Istandwithbuhari group because its premature and ostentatious celebration of the present administration’s achievements is totally inconsistent with President Buhari’s philosophy of service with humility.
“While the present administration has indeed recorded significant successes in its priority areas of improving security across the nation, ending the Boko Haram insurgency, curbing official corruption and revamping Nigeria’s economy, President Buhari is well aware that his government still has a lot of national challenges to overcome.
“The President prefers to give his fullest attention to addressing those challenges without the unsolicited and unwelcome distraction of untimely praise-singing from groups with dubious and questionable motives”.
