Kyari, Daura haven’t resigned
The Presidency has debunked the reported resignation of the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari and the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura.
Post-Nigeria, an online rumour mill, reported the purported resignation on Sunday.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity stated this in Abuja on Sunday night while reacting to social media reports on the purported resignation of Messrs. Kyari and Daura.
Garba Shehu said the Kyari left Abuja on Saturday for China on presidential assignment and would be back by the middle of the week.
“The report 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 distraction.’’
