Omoyele Sowore, media entrepreneur and presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), has uncovered that Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, used to send him documents to frustrate former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Sowore disclosed this in a meeting on Arise TV, monitored by POLITICS NIGERIA.
Atiku was Nigeria’s Vice-President from 1999 to 2007, while Obasanjo was his chief. The two men endured a frosty relationship, which the former was dependably vocal about after their years in office.
“When Garba Shehu used to work with him (Atiku) as Special Assistant (SA), they used to send me documents from their side – I’m revealing it for the first time – to counter Obasanjo, in those days that they were on each other’s neck.”
At the point when he found employment elsewhere at the Triumph newspapers in Kano State, Shehu continued to the Aluminum Smelter Company of Nigeria (ALSCON), Ikot-Abasi as the Pioneer DGM (Public Relations). It was from that point, in 2003, that he joined Atiku as Special Assistant Media.
He was Atiku’s partner until the penultimate general elections in Nigeria.
In 2015, Shehu was appointed the Director of Media and Publicity of the All Progressive Congress (APC) for the presidential campaign council. In 2015, he was appointed Buhari’s associate, and was reappointed after the President was confirmed for one more term of four years.
