Presidency denies meeting with Editors

The Presidency has debunked reports that President Muhammadu Buhari will on Friday, September 9 meet with Newspaper editors at Presidential Villa, Abuja. The spokesperson to the president on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu in series of tweets on Thursday revealed that no meeting has been scheduled; rather the editors have been called together by the Media Office of the presidency.

"There is no meeting for the Nigerian President with editors on Friday. It is a security briefing. The upcoming meeting at 2pm on Friday, September 9 with editors was called by the Media Office of the Presidency to offer the media a confidential, off-the-record briefing by the intelligence community on matters of the economy and security.

The letter of invitation did not say anything about transportation and accommodation because none has been arranged. Tea and coffee will however be served at the meeting, to last no more than two hours," he wrote.
