Oil and Gas magnate billionaire, Scott Tommey, has joined his fellow billionaire, Aliko Dangote, to distance selves from the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council constituted by President Muhammadu Buhari to see to the success of his reelection bid in the forth coming election.
Tommey had been named into the Advisory Council of President Buhari campaign team.
But in a statement signed by his Media Aide, Femi Ajayi, on Tuesday, the billionaire said he was honoured by the appointment but he is not into partisan politics.
The statement read: “It has become pertinent to clarify the status of Mr Scott Tommey, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Osmoserve Global Limited, named into the Advisory Council of President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign team.
“While Mr Tommey is honoured to have been considered for this appointment, he feels obliged to let the public know that he is not into partisan politics neither is he a card-carrying member of the APC.”
Popular critic of President Buhari, Reno Omokri, has therefore, taken a swipe at the president on Tommey’s position.
“Another billionaire, Scott Tommey, has denied @MBuhari and rejected his appointment on his Presidential Campaign Council, making him the second after @AlikoDangote. How inept can you be that you appoint people without even consulting them? Who wants to be associated with failure?”
