The Presidency on Sunday said contrary to reports, the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari; and the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura, have not resigned.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made the clarification in an interview with journalists.
He said reports about their resignation was mischievous.
He said while Kyari was on official assignment in China, Daura was diligently doing his work.
He said, “That 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 distractions.”
