The presidency has described as “a publicity stunt,” reports alleging that the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Umar Ghali Na’Abba, was invited by the Department of State Service over his recent comments on President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who stated this in a statement issued on Sunday, urged the general public to ignore the claim.
The statement read: “Our findings have revealed that Na’Abba’s invitation has nothing to do with his alleged utterances which, in any case, did not catch the attention of the Presidency, or of any serious politician for that matter.
“There are serious politicians who talk and the presidency responds because such politicians make statements that must get attention.
“Flash-in-the-pan politicians and those who fabricate political relevance don’t bother anyone.
“We advise Na’Abba to distance the presidency from the situation he has found himself and sort himself out accordingly.”
