Buhari dissociates himself from #IstandwithBuhari group, says it is dubious

President Muhammadu Buhari has dissociated himself from the group #IstandwithBuhari, a pro Buhari group. The Presidency describes the group as dubious and having questionable characters and
also advises them to desist from using the President's and his wife's name in promoting their activities.
Recall that this group, #IstandwithBuhari budgeted about 1.2 billion Naira for their rally which they say is in support of President Buhari's policies. The Presidency has however dissociated itself from the group with a press statement from Garba Shehu, SSA to the President on Media and Publicity. The press statement is below:

The Presidency formally dissociates itself from the #Istandwithbuhari advocacy group and demands that the group should immediately stop claiming any alliance with the Buhari Administration.
The Presidency also demands that the persons behind the controversial #Istandwithbuhari group should stop using President Muhammadu Buhari's name and that of his wife, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari to promote themselves and their activities.
Among other reasons, we have found it necessary to distance the Presidency from the #Istandwithbuhari group because its premature and ostentatious celebration of the present administration's achievements is totally inconsistent with President Buhari's philosophy of service with humility.
While the present administration has indeed recorded significant successes in its priority areas of improving security across the nation, ending the Boko Haram insurgency, curbing official corruption and revamping Nigeria's economy, President Buhari is well aware that his government still has a lot of national challenges to overcome.
The President prefers to give his fullest attention to addressing those challenges without the unsolicited and unwelcome distraction of untimely praise-singing from groups with dubious and questionable motives.
