NIGERIA POLITICS: Update! Buhari’s Death ‘Baseless Rumors’: Garba Shehu

The presidential media aide, Mallam Garba Shehu to his social media to respond to calls and rumours circulating the social media yesterday regarding the health of President Buhari.

“Baseless rumors are trending again that an unpleasant thing has happened to our beloved President, Muhammadu Buhari,” Garba Shehu.

Garba added “if you have received this information on WhatsApp or Facebook, disregard it because it is plain lies spread by vested interests to create panic.”

The presidential media aide further said “nothing unpleasant has happened to the President. No cause for apprehension.”

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari immediately left Nigeria for London for medical follow up with his doctors after seeing and talking to the 82 freed Chibok girls by the Boko Haram after prisoner exchange in the negotiation before the girls were released.

Mallam Garba Shehu ended with a note of thanks to the concerned and patriotic citizens who call to share their concern on the said rumour.

God has ‘extended Buhari’s lifespan’
Musa Fomson, national co-ordinator of the Northern Interfaith and Religious Organization for Peace, says God has put the enemy of Nigeria to shame by extending the lifespan of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking at a meeting in Abuja over the weekend, he appealed to Nigerians not to be deterred by the health condition of the president, expressing confidence that Buhari would soon bounce back to continue the “good job” he had started.

He said Nigeria will experience a great harvest and turn-around under Buhari.

“President Muhammadu Buhari remains God’s answer to the prayer of Nigerians for a leader that would make afflictions, pains and hunger things of the past,” he said.

“Just like the biblical Hezekiah, God has put the enemy of the nation into shame by extending the life span of the president on earth.

“The Lord revealed to the gathering of the anointed clergies that Boko Haram has long been defeated about a year ago and those carrying out attacks are the rebels that the devil has refused to release from the bondage of their past and doomed even on earth before judgment in the hereafter.

“Boko Haram is an enemy of whom we shall hear no more even when persons freshly possessed of the destructive spirits operate under its name. The Lord shall make Nigeria triumph at every turn.

“The enemies of the president are only fighting God and will meet their waterloo if they fail to turn away from their evil ways. The Lord shall keep President Buhari to fulfil his mission in Nigeria.

“God said he has used the first two years of Buhari to reset the nation and the remaining years ahead are years of harvest for those that would believe in the leader that God has given to them. In this vein, Nigerians are enjoined to shun murmuring and not engage in grumbling that is displeasing to God so that their case would not be like the Children of Israel, whose murmuring prevented from entering the promised land.”
