Presidential aide Bashir Ahmad has discredited a report which claims he has been appointed as manager in the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) under the Ministry of Petroleum Resources.

An online platform claimed in the report that President Muhammadu Buhari secretly made the appointment.

However, in a tweet on Monday, Mr Ahmad said the report was false.

“A friend sent me a link to a concocted story from an online news blog that the President has quietly appointed me as a manager of the DPR, a department of Ministry of Petroleum Resources, for those who want to know the truth, the story is 100% FALSE. I am not a staff of the DPR,” he said.
