Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has alluded to the fact that the widely rumored death of President Muhammadu Buhari, is not a “big deal to Nigerians.” Recall, that a section of the social media, had claimed that Buhari had died in London, following his illness last week. While describing those behind the rumored death of Buhari, as wicked and callous, Obasanjo stated that he had also experienced the same death rumor. Obasanjo in a statement on Friday maintained that what Buhari needed was “are our prayers and best wishes, which will ginger his morale to come back stronger and better.”
While recalling that he has also been a victim of such rumored death while in Office as the President, he declared, “No normal human being will wish an elderly person dead irrespective of their differences.
“If you don’t like him, wait for another election, not going about to say he is dead. No matter his health situation, we should pray for him to recover quick and come back stronger and better. For anyone wishing him dead, such person or group of persons are callous, wicked and treacherous. “I was also rumored to have died almost 12 times. I don’t know what they derive from doing so, but, they should seek for forgiveness. “Even if we know that the President is sick, he is in a better position to know what to say or what to do and not wishing him dead. We should just stop politicizing everything, especially with the elderly in the country.”
