The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT), Senator Walid Jibrin, has distanced the party from the rumoured death of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement, Jibrin described those spreading the rumour as desperate power seekers and urged them to desist from the act and keep praying for the President’s quick recovery, as the PDP had been praying fervently for the President’s quick recovery and return to the country.
He further condemned those behind the President’s rumoured death, saying the trend was a dangerous one that must be checked by well meaning Nigerians.
“As a good opposition party, we shall never engage in wishing President Buhari dead, instead, we are engaged in special prayers for Mr. President and we sincerely sympathise with his family and the Acting President”, he said.
“The PDP will like to be completely excused from the rumoured death and speculation on the state of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ill health being spread by some power seekers, who are eager to take over from him. The ill health does not deserve the speculation going on.
