Nigeria Presidency on Saturday night discarded the rumored death of President Muhammadu Buhari which is making rounds in the media.

An online publication of his death which surfaced late Saturday evening had claimed that President Buhari gave up the ghost at a London hospital, few days after starting his medical vacation.

Reacting to the death report, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, described it as hogwash. The president’s spokesman prayed for those wishing the president dead to repent.

Similarly, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity , Garba Shehu denied the report on his twitter handle saying, “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.”

Shehu who is believed to be referring to former President Goodluck Jonathan who had on Friday visited former President Olusegun Obasanjo further wrote: “He is unlike a past President who was at Ota with Chief Obasanjo and attending the Trump inauguration in DC, being in two places at the same time.”
