The presidential aide said further that the documents did not originate from Buhari’s official campaign media department.

Shehu said:

 “We prefer to talk about milestones instead of achievements; whether the milestones represent achievements or not, that is left for the people to decide. Milestones have been achieved, which is important for the country.”

 “The President never promised anything to anyone. It is on record in that lecture at Chatham House; they asked him a question relating to expectations and what he specifically would do in relation to certain documents that were flying around, committing him to this thing or that thing within 100 days.”

“My point is that as the Director, Media and Communications of that campaign, I was responsible for internal and external communications and these so-called documents that were being flown around didn’t have my signature.”

“I didn’t fund them and I didn’t authorise them. From what President Buhari said at Chatham House, he had no iota or knowledge of those documents. So, people cannot hold him to account on something to which he did not commit himself”.

Nigerians had criticized All Progressives Congress (APC) spokesperson, Lai Mohammed after he said that Buhari never promised to do anything within 100 days.
