Trouble As President Buhari Exposes The Latest FAKE NEWS In Town, Gives Very Powerful Directive

President Muhammadu Buhari, has denied ordering for the immediate arrest and prosecution of Amaju Pinnick, the Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.

President Buhari made this denial on Sunday night, in a Press statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

The statement reads in full:

A Press release in circulation in the last 24 hours, to the effect that President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the arrest and prosecution of Amaju Pinnick, the NFF Chairman, is fake news, because anyone familiar with the President’s unmitigated and unshakable commitment to the due processes of the law, will not make such assumptions of the President.

The position of the President, that allegations of criminal nature should be addressed only by investigation and law enforcement Agencies, within the framework of the law, has not changed.

It is not in the nature of President Buhari to say go and arrest that man or woman, as formed the practice in the past.

Rather, he allows all allegations of this nature to be addressed, using the mechanism of the rule of law, even as law enforcement and investigation Agencies should not in any way be hampered in performing their duties.

At the same time, nobody should drop names to seek to influence the course of those investigations.
