The Presidency has denied reports that President Muhammadu Buhari is ill. According to the presidential spokesman, Femi Adeshina, who reacted swiftly to the report which was published by Premium Times, the President is hale and hearty. According to him Nigerians even saw photos of him yesterday receiving former president Olusegun Obasanjo and when he also received Arch Bishops at the Presidential villa. He said;
“Didn’t you see pictures of him receiving Anglican bishops yesterday (Friday)? Did he look sick? The president is as fit as a fiddle. Anyone who says he is sick is telling lies.”
“That is a figment of the person’s imagination. Just yesterday he received the primate of the Anglican Communion and arch bishops at the presidential villa. He also received former President Olusegun Obasanjo (pictured). He is hale and hearty. The imagination of whoever says that is on overdrive,” Adeshina told The Cable.
