The Presidency has reacted to the rumoured resignation of the Chief of Staff, CoS to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari and the Director-General of Department of State Services, DSS, Lawal Daura.
It said the speculations were mere distractions.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President, on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba, said the report was not true, describing it as “pure mischief.”
Garba further explained that Kyari was on an errand to China for the President, while Daura was at his duty post.
He said in a statement, “That report that Abba Kyari and Lawal Daura have resigned is pure mischief.
“What I can tell you is that the President sent the Chief of Staff Malam Abba Kyari to China on an assignment.
“He left on Saturday and we are expecting him by the middle of the week.
“The DG DSS who spoke with me a few hours ago is busy on his job.
“Nothing to indicate resignation. I think these are mere distractions.”
