The special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on digital communications, Bashir Ahmad has reacted to a report alleging that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, is pushing for a public holiday on May 26, an attempt to stop the Supreme Court from ruling on his disqualification.
The post shared on Twitter reads: “Information reaching me now from an insider is that @officialABAT is trying to lean on @MBuhari to declare a public holiday on Friday 26 May, which is the date the supreme court is supposed to deliver the judgment that could disqualify him.
“He has also tasked Lagos State governor @jidesanwoolu and his money launderer-in-chief Gilbert Chagoury to raise a total of N100bn with which to approach the supreme court justices”
However, a member of the All Progressive Congress (APC) with the Twitter handle Woye while reacting to the reports said there are no plans by the federal government or Buhari to declare a public holiday.
Bashir who retweeted the post described the report as misleading saying he was shocked that over two thousand Nigerians have shared the post.
He wrote: “I was shocked when I was over 2,000 Nigerian people retweeted that misleading tweet”
