Buhari denies snubbing government officials in Katsina

President elect, Muhammadu Buhari, receiving the Ibikunle Amosun in Kaduna.

President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has dismissed as fictional and uncharitable, a report by an online medium that he walked some government officials out of his residence in Daura, Katsina State.

A statement by the Director of Media and Publicity of the APC presidential Campaign, Garba Shehu on Wednesday denied that any such incident took place as reported by the online newspaper.

“It was a false and an inaccurate presentation of facts of what transpired when some government officials visited the President-elect at his Daura country home. It is totally out of General Buhari’s character to ask his visitors out,” Mr. Shehu said.

Mr. Shehu said the alleged visit by the Comptroller-General of the Customs, Abdullahi Inde, only happened in the imagination of the said publication. “He did not come visiting at any time.”

On the other reported incident involving Ade Abolurin, the Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Mr. Shehu said the President-elect was already in another meeting when the Commandant-General came visiting and there was no way the President-elect could receive the new visitors.

“He was merely passing through the town and thought to stop by,” Mr. Shehu said.

“As a matter of fact, words were promptly sent to the gentleman and his delegation that General Buhari was unable to meet them owing to the fact of an ongoing meeting that had preceded the time of their arrival.

“The president-elect welcomes positive suggestions from every Nigerian about how to bring progressive change to the country. He will not walk anyone who had come to discuss ways of developing the country. Courtesy and civility will not permit that to happen. It is equally not in his character.

“It is therefore important to put the records straight that the President-elect will be a President for all Nigerians irrespective of whether anyone currently holds a public office or not.”

    Imam Buhari does not owe these people anything. They should allow him to savor the victory handed to him on a golden platter by his god Beelzebub. How many aged people outside the Fulani tribesmen can be handed power irrespective of lack of basic educational qualification coupled with a shameful perjury hanging on his chest?

    • Tunsj

      You are a two faced lying fraud and a total nutjob.

      • Otile

        Who is two faced, a Christian man like me, or omo Odua traitor waiting to stab you in the back?

        • Ahmad

          Was Judas the discipline of Christ not a Christian?

    • George Ager.A

      High BP is coming your way if you keep up like this!

      • Otile

        Why BP? I have nothing to gain or lose from Imam’s unmerited victory.

    • Abdul


    • Chike

      Otile, are you still alive?

      • Otile

        I dey kampe.

    • Ahmad

      I can understand y u are frustrated this much. Y should Nigerians prefer to b led by an ALMAJIRI cattle rearer rather than a backyard P hd holder? Chai! cluelessness don finish u ooh!

      • A. K.

        You are ‘ahmad’ and u spelt kyau as ‘chau’????
        Dirty chameleon impostor!

        • Ahmad

          And who told u every Ahmad is a Hausa man? Your ignorance of Nigerian tribes and cultures pass that of Otouke market women. Dei ris God ooh.

          • A. K.

            Then I suggest you stick to what you know!
            Why are you trying to glue to us by force??
            Emergency hausa man!
            Is it because our Methuselah has won, u want to feel among??
            Be careful!

          • Ahmad

            Who are the “us” please? If u don’t have an ethnic group I can get one for u pls.

          • A. K.

            It’s obvious isn’t it??
            I can’t be up dragging none issues with you ‘mallam’. Only that petty guy called tundemash will do that.
            Sai da safe aboki

          • Ahmad

            Allah Ya tashe mu lafiya. Ameen.

          • A. K.

            da ‘chau’!
            Nice one bro..

          • Ahmad

            Mbalem jam bandirawo to na a kado.

  • Dawood

    The only people he needs to see are members of his team. On May 29, they need to come out of the block banging. All these corrupt parasites who are trying to sneak in through the back door to smile and glad hand, need to send emails telling Buhari how they’re going to return their stolen loot. And stop apologizing for focusing on putting your team and agenda together, Mr. President-elect. As long as you DO right, we have your back.

  • B.Messi

    Was this picture taken before or after the elections??
    Why all these boils and carbuncles??
    What is really wrong with Sai baba??
    He needs our prayers.



    • Ahmad

      With boils and carbuncles Nigerians preferred him over Jonah. Aren’t u surprised?

      • B.Messi

        Not in the least Mr ‘ahmad’.
        Same way Nigerians preferred the dummy Obj sold them!
        Some of us prefer to scratch beneath the surface.
        I will be surprised at how daft some people culd be if lighting strikes the same spot a second time.
        Be prayerful bro..unless you are a pagan..like Mr mess..

        • Ahmad

          Life and death are in the hands of God almighty not men. Only pagans and fetish people think otherwise.

          • B.Messi

            But like the sons of Issachar, we must understand the signs if the times!
            Enough said bro..
            Watch..and pray..

          • B.Messi

            *of the times..

          • Otile

            He prays to Beelzebub their god.

          • Ahmad

            U worship Lucifer

          • Otile

            I worship The Almighty and Merciful God. Your Lucifer is for you.

          • Ahmad

            So merciful that he couldn’t forgive a sin without killing his “son”. Merciful indeed.

          • Ashibogu

            Blasphemy! I will rend my garment straight away! May God forgive you your sins for you do not know what you have posted. For light came to the world but men preferred darkness. Too bad!

          • Ahmad

            God forgives me my sins cos He is always a merciful God.

          • On here as well

            In as much as i would agree with you, please refrain from religious bigotry. Joining issues with anyone on here does not necessarily mean to condescend to damaging the Christian faith

          • Ahmad

            Not in my character . They started it all. Follow the trend from the post of Otile.

          • Hajiya Binta(nee Osinbajo)

            Haba TundeFart, so na ‘Jehovah’ you be now??

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Would rather you keep this opinion to yourself, @Ahmad.

            It does not edify either writer or reader!

          • B.Messi

            Aptly put.

            Your ‘change’ has come.
            I guess congratulations are in order..

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            lol, Ahmad’s religious opinion is personal to him and I do not share it.

            However, it does not invalidate his political opinions, which I do not disagree with.

          • B.Messi

            Oga, your opinion on his political opinions is yur personal opinion!
            Why u dey pretend say u no see my ‘congratulations’?
            Una still dey vex??

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Friend, I have no reason to be vexed with you or anyone else, you know?

            As long as we don’t make the comments ‘personal’.

            Who knows, I may be on the same side of the argument with you a few months down the line hollering at GMB.

            There is nothing personal here.

            BTW, I deliberately ignored your tongue-in-cheek ‘congratulation’ because it was insincere and had a religiously gloating inflection to it.

          • B.Messi

            Lawyer, lawyer, u are damn too presumptuous! Haba!
            Gaskiya I mean am o!
            * STRAIGHT FACE*
            You and who will holler at Baba?? Do you holler at yur dad at home??
            Sai Baba! Sai Mr kay!

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            I accept the “congratulations” at face value in that case, thanks.

            By the way, I am a cleaner, not a lawyer.

            Just to reiterate, my loyalty is not to President-Elect Buhari, in the same way that my antagonism of President Jonathan was not because of his person.

            My enduring loyalty is to the Nigerian State and people and my ultimate goal is good governance.

            I will switch on ANYBODY who goes against either, without second thoughts.

            As to that non sequitur about who I holler at, at home, it remains that because I no longer live under the same roof as my parents. That question can only be conceived in the mind of someone who still does.

            Do you still live at…?

          • B.Messi

            U don’t have to live under your parents roof to holler at yur dad. You could do it when u visit..or even on the fone.
            As to yur question, though irrelevant, the answer is no sir. However, as a true African man, I alwys relish the prospects of being able to spend some time under the same roof with my Dad anytime.

          • Ed

            Our God and savior didn’t kill his son, so that he can save the repentant. Evil people like you were allowed to kill Jesus in so that he can rise from death. Jesus Christ did risen from death Mohamed on the other hand forced innocent people to follow his Islamic fundamentalist agenda.
            I’M going to restrain myself from tell you the real story of Mohamed.

          • B.Messi

            See his comment below on the Father..the Son..and the Holy spirit.
            I told you he is a pagan. Hiding under the name ‘ahmad’.
            The same guy hiding under several pseudo names here.
            We all know him. Na backstabber true true.

          • B.Messi

            He has given me stronger reasons to believe you than disbelieve!
            Pray for him. He needs our prayers.

  • Marquis_di_Gorgonzola

    Yoruba man! Yoruba man!
    This guy in the pic with Baba reminds me of tundemess!
    Are some of my Yoruba brothers condemned to an eternal life of servitude??
    See how Buhari is just looking at him..while he is busy laffin kekekekeke!
    Hmm..Tinubu and Osibaba are in for a real shocker!
    Let the drama begin!

    • Ahmad

      The “drama” has since begun with Jonah drawing the handing over date nearer. Your “shocker” never start sef.

    • True son of the soil

            DONT BE A BIGOT!

      • Otile

        Your hatred for Igbo has fooled into thinking that any right thinking person here is Igbo. Man, other ethnic groups in continent Nigeria are intelligent too. They too know very well that Imam is mentally ill-equipped for the job cut out for him.

        • Otile

        • Marquis_di_Gorgonzola

          Forget the clown. The only person with such narrow mindedness is your friend tundemash. He hides under false names when he wants to exhibit his true bigoted parochial nature.
          Some others here have decoded him.
          Lately, he has also shown himself to be an idol worshipper. I have no problem with that if it’s his choice..problem is, He worships premium Times and SaharaReporters. The worst form of idolatry.

    • dd

      IT is not true. Buhari is also laughing seriously. However if he laugh more than this, he might collapse. Aged rips and jaws can stretch more than that.

        You can wish a 72 years old man death but you can see that Oronto Douglas will die at 49. dd or what do you call yourself, Heaven is in support of GMB and God already heard the cries for #CHANGE. No devil or demon like you can truncate the CHANGE by your death wishes. You are mortal and you can’t cause rain to fall.

    • kkk

      I ask; what is your business about this? Servitude you assert, we would soon find out which tribe is condemned to servitude from May 29.

      • Marquis_di_Gorgonzola

        Read my reply above.
        Like I said above, ‘Yoruba man’ is different from ‘Yoruba men’!!
        Why bring tribe into this issue of servitude??
        I restate for the avoidance of doubt I am NOT From southern Nigeria. But if I can correctly read between the lines of yur bigoted comment on ‘the tribe condemned to servitude from may 29’, that tribe you probably make reference to have NEVER lived a life of servitude. They do not and have NEVER relied on the government at the centre(nor anywhere else) to ply their trade and show how industrious they are!

      Dear dd,

      Your comments show a direct reflection of your moral standing. You belong to the crowd of nigerians that believe in politics of patronage (our brother politics) where your idea of a sound democracy is by the amount of political appointments a certain region or your region deserves. Democracy for a few ‘agbayas’ with no moral fibre. This is a democracy for all. I pray GMB n APC will disappoint you by restoring power and economy in logical ways. When power becomes stable and economy Is growing with influx of investors, maybe you will come up with a sick logic that the light is not full current. I hope your mentality is just a phase. Embrace change.
