Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, has explained appeared at Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council meeting wearing a branded cap campaigning for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.
Shittu who recently announced himself as the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Muhammadu Buhari/Yemi Osinbajo Dynamic Support Group to drive the re-election campaign of the president, wore a campaign cap with Buhari’s image, but was allegedly stopped by the SGF, Boss Mustapha from distributing it.
Speaking to State House correspondents after the council meeting, Shittu explained that the materials were not meant for the FEC deliberations.
Daily Post quoted him as saying: “The cap is for politics, it is not for Federal Executive Council, FEC deliberations and the caps have been distributed to all members of FEC.
“So, it is sample for any other person who is interested in doing what we have done.
“I know everybody will be involved, everybody will be guided, people will take decision to support General Buhari in the 2019 elections.”
