Buhari works from home when most civil servants have closed - Shehu

Buhari works from home when most civil servants have closed - Shehu

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, said that contrary to reports in some quarters, President Muhammadu Buhari had an engaging week devoted mostly to policy issues, not ceremonial events.

Shehu, who is the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, said this in Abuja on Sunday. The Presidential aide was reacting to media reports insinuating that the Presidency had heavily cut down President Buhari’s workload since his return from London on March 10, to allow him rest.

The reports said the President “has spent just about three to four hours in office since his return to Nigeria’’, adding that “the president has not attended any event outside the Presidential Villa since his return.’’

Shehu, however, debunked the assumptions, saying that “in the first week of his return, President Buhari walked his talk on his intense desire to pay back to Nigerians by way of keeping their trust and serving their interests.

“His reply to the people for their support and trust is to work much harder for them.’’

The President according to Shehu did not have a day off or even a light week at all throughout his week of resumption.

“I read those analyses and i believe they were mostly wrong. What they don’t understand is that the President doesn’t follow official working hours because he is on duty all the time. He has another office by his living room so he works from home when most civil servants have closed.’’

Shehu noted that the president, who resumed work on Monday 13, started with the letters he sent to the two arms of the parliament, signifying his return to work.
