Presidential Committee on North-East speaks on TY Danjuma’s ‘resignation’


The Presidential Committee on North-East Initiative, PCNI, has debunked reports making the rounds that its chairman, Lieut.-Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.) has resigned.

Head of Media and Communications of the Committee, Alkasim Abdulkadir, made this known in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.
Recall that Danjuma, a former chief of army staff, recently accused the armed forces of aiding the killings by armed bandits in parts of Nigeria, especially the deadly attacks in his home, Taraba State.

Dispelling rumours that Danjuma has resigned from the committee, Abdulkadir pleaded with news organisations, journalists and social media users to always verify the source of stories before publishing.
The statement reads, “The attention of the Presidential Committee on The North East Initiative has been drawn to online reports and social media posts on the purported resignation of the Chairman of the PCNI.

“This statement hereby debunks the reports and states that retired Lt. Gen. TY Danjuma remains the Chairman of the PCNI.”
