“No matter how long we choose to feign ignorance, the news of a stranger running the affairs of Nigeria has gained international attention. I have in the past few weeks received calls from different world leaders and some concerned global investors who sought for my response over this issue which is currently being talked about in almost every home in the country.
Fake news is real but this story whether false or true can only be put to rest by the accused who happens to be President Muhammadu Buhari. In 2010, many of you I believe still remember how it was rumoured that I was shot dead by assassins. The news understandably went viral immediately and on learning about it, I came out and said I was alive and well. Buhari is answerable to Nigerians so he should do the needful and stop inadvertently giving credence to the story.”
