I Am Not Dying Anytime Soon– Buhari

By Ikenga Chronicles February 3, 2017

President Muhammadu Buhari has called on those Nigerians peddling rumours of his demise to stop because he is not ready to die now.

Buhari who was represented by the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu at the 31st edition of the national Quránic recitation in Ilorin, Kwara State on Friday dismissed insinuations about his health status based on his age saying the fact that he is old does not mean he would die soon.

Recall that there have been several insinuations about the well-being of the president since he jetted out to the UK for routine medical check-up.

The Minister, who represented the President at the event, said that Buhari is well and alive.

“I want to give you an example of Ibadanland. I lived in Ibadan all my life and I know that when Olubadans are to be appointed, more often than not, they are very, very old. At times you have 70 or 75 years old being appointed as Olubadans and then there will be the presumption that he will die the next day, but in God’s way, the man stayed till 35 years as Olubadan.”

“If God will do His will for an Olubadan, how much more for a President of a beloved country like Nigeria? So what we need is for all of us to pray for our president so that we can continue to enjoy political stability in our country so that we will enjoy social and economic development.”
