The presidency has asked members of the opposition parties and other Nigerians that alleged that President Buhari was in the UK to treat an undisclosed ailment, to swallow their words.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said this in a statement he released shortly after President Buhari returned to the country on Sunday after his ten days private visit to London.
According to Adesina, President Buhari’s timely return has put an end to the speculations that he was sick. He added that the reports which said the president would extend his visit has also been proven as fake, adding that all those reports were vain imaginations of those he called “apostles of evil”.
Read the full statement by Femi Adesina, the special adviser to the President.
“PRESIDENT BUHARI RETURNS: CAN THEY NOW SWALLOW THEIR WORDS?
President Muhammadu Buhari Sunday returned to Abuja, after a 10-day private visit to the United Kingdom.
Some reckless online media, irresponsible political opposition, and other bilious groups and individuals had gone on overdrive since the President left the country on April 25, insinuating that he was going for hospitalization, and would not return after 10 days as stated.
In their vain imaginations, they even stated that fictive doctors have advised President Buhari to stay longer for more intensive care.
Now that the President has returned, can these apostles of evil imaginings swallow their words? Can they retract their tendentious stories as well as press statements, and apologize to millions of Nigerians both at home and in the Diaspora that they have fed with hogwash?
Few days after the celebration of World Press Freedom Day, we daresay that this valuable freedom does not tantamount to liberty to mislead and hoodwink the populace through concocted and jejune publications.
The Buhari administration will always respect and uphold press freedom, but the onus lies on those prone to passing off fiction as facts, to remember that freedom demands concomitant responsibility. Those who further share and disseminate falsehood are also encouraged to embrace responsible conduct.”
