FG Says Rumour Mongers Over Buhari's Health Will Be Dealt With



The Federal Government says the full wrath of the law will be brought to bear on the authors of subversive messages being circulated on the health of President Muhammadu Buhari.




The government said this in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

“The source/sources of the fabricated messages are already being investigated and the authors should prepare to face the consequences of their actions,’’ the minister said.

According to Mohammed, the President is hale and hearty and there is no iota of truth in the subversive messages being circulated on his health.

He noted that there was no truth in the messages on the president’s health and the purported emergency meetings of state governors in Abuja or anywhere.

The minister urged Nigerians to disregard the messages being circulated via text messages and the social media, saying the fabricated messages were being orchestrated by those who felt threatened by the emerging order.

Mohammed noted that the naysayers had also resorted to the use of ethnicity and religion as tools to divide Nigerians, over-heat the polity, and cause panic among the citizenry.

“While opposition and criticism are all part of democracy, the crafting and circulation of subversive materials and scare-mongering are not.

“The emerging trend of resorting to destabilisation and scare-mongering is not unexpected, considering this government’s clamp-down on the corrupt elements in the society.’’

The minister said the scare mongering was because government had blocked all financial leaks, enthroned probity and transparency and derailed the gravy train of the looters of public treasury.

Mohammed said government would neither stifle press freedom nor abridge the citizens’ right to express themselves freely through constructive criticism or protests.

He, however, warned that “the security agencies will neither allow any resort to violence nor a willful subversion of the state for whatever reason’’.

See all the muscle they use to debunk the presidents rumoured death, if only they could use the same might to tackle the herds men issue, insurgency, poor performance and co. Lai Mohammed thinks we care right now whether buhari is or isn't

Arsenal Firstlady said...

And if it comes out to be true, what are we going to do to Liars like you?

MMM Guider said...

Forget it, bubu is dead, they are hiding it, if it's not true why are they forcing osibanjo to resign. But the truth will surely come out one day

Nmasinachi said...

It is wrong. Say what you must, but spreading tales of death/illness is totally unacceptable. Saw it on Facebook and was scared for a bit. Thank God he is okay. If he will leave the seat of power, I'd rather he be alive, for peace to reign.

Stella, you swallowed my comment yesterday. Buhari's health is deteriorationg. A doctor friend of mine in London, confirmed it to me. What Metro UK posted is very true. All he needs now is divine intervention not all these lies.
