DAAR Communications Plc, owners of African Independent Television (AIT) and Ray Power Radio, have denied giving President Muhammadu Buhari an award titled ‘African President of the Year 2019’.

President Buhari’s aide on new media, Bashir Ahmad, had shared a picture on twitter portraying the privately-owned broadcasting company has given the said award to his principal.

Ahmad captioned the now deleted picture: “The African President of the Year 2019. Great choice, thank you DAAR/AIT.”

But reacting hours after in a tweet, DAAR Communications distanced itself from the award.

The company said the award shared on social media by the presidential aide was given to President Buhari in January 2019 for the previous year, and “doesn’t reflect the activities of Mr President for the year 2019 in review.”
