It’s Fake News, I Didn’t Request Tinubu Not To Probe Some Of My Ministers, Officials – ex-President Buhari



Former President Muhammadu Buhari,has denied claims making the round in the media that he had requested President Ahmed Bola Tinubu not to investigate ministers appointed during his eight years tenure.

BIGPEN NIGERIA ( reports that the social media had been awashed with reports that the former President Muhammadu Buhari is requesting his successor, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, not to investigate some former officials of his government.

But former presidential spokesman, Shehu Garba, in a statement says “It is fake, let us not discuss it or give it energy or air of publicity. This is fake news, and nothing more”.


“Thankfully, there was no one other than the two leaders in the room in which they met, so no one was there to report their conversation.

“As much as possible, the former President wishes to remain outside the spotlight so as not to distract the new administration.

“He chose to go home in Daura hoping to find the type of quiet he wished for himself but realizing that this was not the case, visitors trooping in morning, day and night, he moved out to a more distant place.


“It remains his wish that he be allowed to have his needed rest, and for the Tinubu administration to have the right atmosphere to work on the realisation of the promises they made”, the statement reads.
