Presidency said yesterday that President Muhammadu Buhari never summoned Chief of Staff Abba Kyari and Head of Service Winifred Oyo-Ita over their reported clash at the State House on Wednesday.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, at a meeting with State House reporters, described the reports of a feud between Kyari and Oyo-Ita as fabrications.
“People can debate and argue over issues, but to suggest that there was a feud, a fight or a clash was to take matters beyond what they were,” the presidential spokesman said.
According to him, top government officials of that caliber see the president on a regular basis, and to suggest that they were summoned to see him as a result of a so-called feud was just a fabrication.
He said “it was impossible for the conversation between Kyari, and Oyo-Ita to have been heard any journalist as the distance between the State House correspondents and the two government officials as they addressed the vice president at Wednesday’s FEC meeting would have made their conversation completely inaudible to the journalists.”
