SAN FRANCISCO, April 15, (THEWILL) –  The Presidency has refuted an online media report insinuating that Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr, Doyin Okupe, had identified the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) leader, Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari, as the main sponsor of the Boko Haram group.

Describing the report as false, the Presidency said it was the handiwork of evil persons who are out to tarnish the image of Okupe and cause disaffection in the country by setting citizens against each other and against government.

 A statement signed on Monday by the Special Adviser to the President on Public Relations, Dr. Olusanya Awosan, said “The Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs has denied a report circulating online that Dr, Doyin Okupe has identified Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari as the main sponsor of the Boko Haram group.

"The office has described the story as false and the handiwork of evil persons who are out to tarnish the image of Dr. Okupe and cause disaffection in the country by setting citizens against each other and against government.

“The office advises journalists to always crosscheck with us before going to press as we are ready to volunteer information as we have always done.

“We also enjoin the good people of Nigeria to discountenance this fictitious report because at no time did Dr. Okupe identify the former Head of State as a sponsor of Boko Haram.”
