A former chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tony Anenih, has condemned those behind the media report that the health condition of President Muhammadu Buhari could have worsened, leading to possible death in Germany.
Anenih said this while reacting to the development yesterday in Abuja.
He dismissed the report as the handiwork of those who only did not wish Buhari well, but who also did not mean well for Nigeria.
“This attitude of doing false report about the death of our leaders has become characteristic in the media and it is not good. I was a victim of this in May, last year, when I was reported to have died in a London hospital. Former President Ibrahim Babangida was also a victim of such sinister rumoured death last year. I wonder what those behind the false and mischievous reports intended to gain from them.
“Fabricating such negative and false reports of death about fellow human beings is wicked and ungodly. It is clearly against Biblical admonition that we should pray for leaders and people in authority.
“At this time of economic recession, rather than wish President Buhari dead, Nigerians should fervently pray for him to enjoy good health to be able to take the country out of the woods.
“The masterminds of these false reports should desist from such despicable act that only portrays them as inhuman. They should fear God, ask for His mercy and forgiveness so that they do not invite the wrath of God upon their heads,” he said.
