Acting President's visit to Buhari has proved rumour mongers wrong -Orji Kalu

Friday, July 14, 2017

Former Governor of Abia, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has said those peddling rumours that President Muhammadu Buhari is on life support have been proved wrong with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo's recent visit to the president in London.

Kalu, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday in Abuja, said Osinbajo's visit to Buhari in London had shown that the rumour peddlers were liars.

Kalu said everything possible should be done to reduce increasing hate speeches and 'death wish' in the country.

"The confirmation of the president's health status by the acting president and wife of the president, Mrs Aisha Buhari, is something good Christians and Muslims should embrace with joy.

"Those wishing the president dead and spreading false rumours about his health are exposing their ignorance about life and death.

"I do not understand what joy people derive in wishing their fellow human beings dead. Anybody can fall sick, but no good Christian and Muslim would wish someone dead,'' he said.

The former governor also commended Osinbajo for the visit and noted that he had "not only shown leadership, but also maintained the virtues of the president.''

He also urged Nigerians to pray for Buhari's quick recovery in the "hope for a better and stronger Nigeria.''
