The Presidency has redeployed the Deputy Director linked to the plagiarism incident in President Buhari’s speech when he launched the “Change Begins With Me” campaign on September 8th.

The Deputy Director was discovered to have copied part of a speech by President Barack Obama of the United States into President Buhari's speech during the campaign.

“At 8 o’clock on the Monday morning following the allegations, he reported at the office of the Head of Service, and he was immediately asked to vacate his position and office at the State House pending further measures which will be guided by civil service rules and regulations,” Daily Trust quotes a source at the presidency as saying Femi Adesina who is the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity when contacted, confirmed that the deputy director no longer works at the state house. "The officer is no longer in the State House.”
