Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has refuted an online media report alleging that Nigerian Governors are planning to send a delegation to confirm the health status of President Buhari in London, saying there is no need for such emissary since the President is in good shape.
He made this known in Abuja when he received members of the Presidential Committee on the Northeast Initiative’s Sub Committee on Economic Development.
He said; “I think it is very much in order to use this opportunity to debunk the report in a section of the press today (Thursday) that Governors are meeting in Abuja and they will at the end of the meeting send an emissary to London to see President Buhari. I want to say categorically and emphatically that there is no iota of truth in this. Governors are not meeting here in Abuja because there is no need for it and there is no plan to send any emissary to London to see the President. Again I want to say that the President is hale and hearty in London where he is observing his 10-day vacation,”.
