Buhari Cannot Be At Two Places At The Same Time,Like Jonathan–Shehu

The Presidency on Saturday night went after former President Goodluck Jonathan in a bid to dispel the rumour that President Muhammadu Buhari who recently jetted out to United Kingdom for medical vacation is dead.

Recall that on Saturday there was panic in several quarters in Abuja as rumours circulated that Buhari had passed on at a London hospital where he was said to be receiving treatment.

Buhari had on Thursday travelled to London after writing to the National Assembly that he would be proceeding on a vacation and that Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo would be performing the duties of the President while he was away.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, took to his Twitter handle to deny the report of the President’s death;

“He is alive and well. President Buhari is not magical. He cannot be holidaying in the UK and be in Germany, dead or alive at the same time.”

“He is unlike a past president, who was at Ota w/[with] Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and attending the Trump inauguration in DC, being in two places at the same time.”

“The report is hogwash,” the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, simply also said.

He also denied the report on his Twitter handle, praying for those behind it to repent.

“Best wishes to all who wish PMB well. As for those who carry evil rumours, may they receive grace to repent” he said.

Similarly, pan-northern socio-political organisation, the Arewa Consultative Forum, said  Buhari is a mortal like every other Nigerian and liable to fall ill. According to the National Publicity Secretary,  Muhammadu Ibrahim, there is nothing wrong if the President falls ill.

The ACF spokesman said, “President Muhammadu Buhari is human. He has taken his annual leave and travelled to the United Kingdom for medical check-up. ACF wishes him well.’’
