The Presidency has denied reports circulating on social media that President Muhammadu Buhari is dead.
According to presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, nothing unpleasant has happened to the president.
On his twitter handle, he described the speculations as “baseless rumour”, urging Nigerians to disregard them.
“Baseless rumors are trending again that an unpleasant thing has happened to our beloved President, Muhammadu Buhari.
“If you have received this information on WhatsApp or Facebook, disregard it because it is plain lies spread by vested interests to create panic.
“Nothing unpleasant has happened to the President. No cause for apprehension. Thanks for the many calls.”
Special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, also reacted to the rumors on his Twitter handle saying “only God’s counsel shall stand” regarding the president’s health.”
President Buhari traveled to London last Sunday night for follow-up medical consultation with his doctors.
