The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja. This was in reaction to a statement credited to Dr. Asake in which he was said to have spoken on the constitutionality of certain actions of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
The presidential spokesman said there were no cases of any violation of the constitution and there will be none under Buhari.
The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to reports of a press conference by General Secretary of Christian Association of Nigeria, Dr. Musa Asake, in which he passed a judgement on the constitutionality of certain actions of the Muhammadu Buhari administration. Unfortunately, he could not cite any valid cases of constitutional violations.”
“President Muhammadu government poses no threat to the country’s democracy and Constitution. There are no cases of any violation of our sacred constitution and there will be none under this President. The respected religious leader should stick to his religious duties and leave politics for politicians.”
