Presidency distances self with #Istandwithbuhari group

The Presidency has formally dissociated itself from the #Istandwithbuhari advocacy group and demands that the group should immediately stop claiming any alliance with the Buhari Administration.

In a statement signed by Garba Shehu, SSA to the President on Media & Publicity, the Presidency also demanded that the persons behind the controversial #Istandwithbuhari group should stop using President Muhammadu Buhari’s name and that of his wife, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari to promote themselves and their activities.

“Among other reasons, we have found it necessary to distance the Presidency from the #Istandwithbuhari group because its premature and ostentatious celebration of the present administration’s achievements is totally inconsistent with President Buhari’s philosophy of service with humility.” The SSA submitted.11225094_988027311284179_6398032020867362754_o-768x512

According to Garba, while the present administration has indeed recorded significant successes in its priority areas of improving security across the nation, ending the Boko Haram insurgency, curbing official corruption and revamping Nigeria’s economy, the President Buhari is well aware that his government still has a lot of national challenges to overcome.istandwithbuhari-dynamic-magazine--768x400

The President, he said, prefers to give his fullest attention to addressing those challenges without the unsolicited and unwelcome distraction of untimely praise-singing from groups with dubious and questionable motives.


It would be recalled that the group has recently been hit with credibility issues following the resignation of two of its National Coordinators within a space of one month.

It has also faced criticisms from the Nigerian public which feel that a march at a time Nigerians are passing through hardship is a needless venture.

The group is planning a mass march in support of the President Mohammadu Buhari administration on March 31.
