“Unmerited bits of gossip are slanting again that an unsavory thing has happened to our dearest President, Muhammadu Buhari. In the event that you have gotten this data on WhatsApp or Facebook, neglect it since it is plain lies spread by personal stakes to make freeze. Nothing disagreeable has happened to the President. No reason for trepidation. Much obliged for the many calls” he composed on Facebook.
