In what appears a direct response to his widely speculated death and failing health on some social media platforms, a picture showing President Muhammadu Buhari watching television in a relaxed mood at his UK vacation base, has emerged. Buhari seen watching a political programme on Channels Television has also in his twitter handle, saluted the Nigerian media for performing its duties diligently.
The President, who made his position known on his Twitter handle, @MBuhari, on Sunday in London, said he was always in touch with news from home.
President Buhari, whose picture was also posted in the tweet, specifically named Channels TV as one of his favorite stations.
â€œWherever I am, I keep up with news from home. Channels TV is one of my favorites. Iâ€™m proud of what the Nigerian media are achieving.â€™â€™
The post has, therefore, dispelled the insinuation about the Presidentâ€™s health conditions.
The Presidential spokespersons on Saturday night in Abuja described as â€evil rumoursâ€ the social media reports on President Buhariâ€™s health conditions.
Many Nigerians have also taken to twitter and Facebook to castigate the mischief makers.
One of the post on facebook said: â€œGodly for mouth, devilish at heartâ€¦how on earth could anyone use death as a mischief tool? It is only God the almighty that giveth life and HE alone has the power to take same life.â€
â€œFor those spreading wicked and evil rumour about death of a soul, they should know that; they themselves donâ€™t know when, where and in which circumstances they will perish.
â€œThey can wish PMB death thousand times and have fun, the same God that created them from drop of sperm to their miserable state is watching them. Long live Nigeria and good Nigerian people, long live PMB!â€
President Muhammadu Buhari left Abuja for the United Kingdom last Thursday on a 10-day Â leave, which is part of his annual vacation.
