The Presidency on Wednesday dismissed as wicked and unfounded the conclusion by a media house that President Muhammadu Buhari is sympathetic to the activities of violent herdsmen.
A national newspaper in its editorial had accused the President of being indifferent to the killer herdsmen atrocities.
But the Presidency in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said there was no truth in the allegations of the media house.
He said “We reject The Punch newspaper’s September 4th, 2018, an editorial which alleged that President Buhari had sympathy for criminality perpetrated by a misguided group.
“The editorial was not only disrespectful of the President and his office but was also reckless, thoughtless, inflammatory and totally irresponsible.
