The Presidency on Wednesday said there is no truth in a claim by a pirate radio station that President Muhammadu Buhari expressed anti-Igbo sentiments in a recent interview with the BBC Hausa Service.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, in a statement, described the claim as “completely false, malicious and slanderous.”
Shehu said the voice being ascribed to Buhari, in the recording repeatedly played back by the pirate radio station, was not that of the President.
He added that the claim that the station got the recording from a BBC interview was totally untrue.
He warned that no one should be deceived by the pirate radio station’s hate propaganda against the President.
