Buhari is alive – Presidency

The information released by British politician Eric Joyce that Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari is dead is not true, the Presidency has said.
Reacting to the alleged rumour by Joyce, who picked it up from a UK metro website, the presidency asked Nigerians to disregard it since Buhari is alive,  In series of tweets by Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, the presidency described the information as plain lies spread by vested interests to create panic.
Nigerians have been criticizing Joyce for allegedly carrying what is considered false news about the country’s president.
But reacting to the presidency claim, the British politician posted on his blog; “first, if you are” president then it’s up to you to show people you are alive and well – it’s not up to your people to prove the opposite.  Every politician in the world knows this”.
“Second, if you are a president and you are not well, then a doctor needs to come out of the hospital and explain to your nation what’s up”.  Christian Voice reports that ever since Buhari recently returned to London for medical checks, many Nigerians have been calling for prayers for him asking God to grant him speedy recovery.
