Buhari Reacts To DSS Report Against Tinubu-Shettima APC Ticket

President Muhammadu Buhari has denied that he got advice against the Bola Tinubu-Kashim Shettima ticket.

The former Lagos governor announced the ex-Borno governor and Senator as his running mate after visiting Buhari in Daura, Katsina state.

On Friday, Peoples Gazette reported that the Department of State Service (DSS) warned about the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

But the President through spokesman Garba Shehu debunked the information in a statement.

The media aide advised Nigerians to “ignore a laughably puerile report by an apparently pirate online newspaper seeking to sow division and chaos on the choice of Governor Kashim Shettima as the running mate of our Party’s Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.

It was reported that senior security agents fear that the Tinubu-Shettima ticket may lead to renewed sectarian crisis that could destabilise Nigeria.

The DSS document was said to have been forwarded to the President through the National Security Adviser, NSA, Babagana Monguno.

It cautioned Tinubu to consider the security implications of his selection before making it public.

Our understanding is that the alliance will destabilise Nigeria and embolden attacks on Christian citizens from their fellow Muslim citizens.

The distrust Christians are likely to harbour against a presidency occupied by two Muslims won’t make our work easy at national security level”, an intelligence operative was quoted saying.

The official added that Buhari was not involved in the talks that led to Tinubu’s announcement of Shettima.

The intelligence report was reportedly commissioned after Tinubu commenced consultations on a Muslim running mate after he emerged as the APC presidential flagbearer early June.
