Former President Muhammadu Buhari never told his successor, Bola Tinubu, not to investigate officials that served in his administration, a former presidential aide, Garba Shehu, has said.

Shehu, who is spokesman to Buhari, said this in a Thursday statement titled, “What Buhari didn’t say to President Tinubu”.

“If social media is to be believed, former President Muhammadu Buhari is requesting his successor, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu not to investigate some former officials of his government.

“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,” Shehu said.

According to Shehu, 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,” Shehu said.
