Owners of African Independent Television (AIT) and Raypower, DAAR Communications Plc have denied giving President Buhari the “African President of the Year” award for 2019.
In tweets which countered President Buhari’s Media Aide Bashir Ahmed’s claim, DAAR Communications therefore clarified the air that the award was an honorary award which was given to four African leaders which included Presidents Paul Kagame of Rwanda, Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia and President Buhari of Nigeria.
It added that DAAR Awards was hosted in January 2019 and therefore doesn’t reflect the activities of President Buhari for the year 2019 in review.
Media Aide has now admitted to his inadequacies, saying it was a mistake and that he was misled.
