The Presidency has dispelled rumours making the rounds that President Muhammadu Buhari is dead.
On Thursday, the president left Nigeria for the UK on a 10-day medical vacation.
In a terse statement by a presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, the Presidency said Mr. Buhari is hale and hearty.
“He is alive and well! President Buhari is not magical. He cannot be holidaying in the UK and be in Germany, dead or alive at the same time.
“He is unlike a past President who was at Ota, with Chief Obasanjo and attending the Trump inauguration in D.C, being in two places at the same time!” Mr. Shehu said.
