The Personal Assistant to the President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, on Thursday night, March 27, shared a photo of President Buhari “at work”.
Bashir Ahmad, who reacted to a report that Muhammadu Buhari and his chief of staff, Abba Kyari, have sneaked out of Nigeria to receive medical treatment abroad.
The report went viral on Twitter after Jackson Ude, who claimed to be former Director of Strategy/Communication under former President Goodluck Jonathan shared purported leaked audio.
‘LEAKED Audio: Buhari, Abba Kyari, secretly flown out of Nigeria?’ on #SoundCloud #np,” Jackson Ude posted about 2 pm on Thursday.
However, on Thursday night, Personal Assistant on New Media to the President, Bashir Ahmad, shared a photo of President Buhari “at work”.
He captioned it “President Buhari still at work”.
“The concocted audio message about President @MBuhari’s whereabouts should be totally disregarded. It is Fake News in its entirety. The President tonight at the State House, at work”.
The post might not be unconnected to concerns about the president’s wellbeing.
The President aide shared the image on Twitter.
It has triggered several reactions from Twitter users who are insisting that Buhari addresses the nation.
The Nigerian government claims Buhari is in good condition but critics disagree.
