The Presidency has dismissed reports that the Directorate of State Services (DSS) has given an advisory on the choice of the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Kashim Shettima.
Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), Garba Shehu, on Friday urged Nigerians to ignore the report.
Shehu described the report as “toxic” and “a deadly virus.
He said: “We wish to advise well-meaning Nigerians to ignore a laughably puerile report by an apparently pirate online newspaper seeking to sow division and chaos on the choice of Governor Kashim Shettima as the running mate of our party’s Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“This so-called newspaper is like a deadly virus. Stay safe by keeping away from its toxic reports.”
An online platform had reported that the DSS wrote a report to the National Security Adviser (NSA) warning on the implication of APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.
The report stated that a Tinubu-Shettima ticket will destabilise the nation.
