The Presidency has released President Muhammadu Buhari’s voice message to Nigerians, in a bid to debunk reports that he is suffering from speech impairment.
Last week, social media was awash with news that President was suffering from speech impairment and memory loss.
However, in the recording, aired on Sunday by some radio stations, including the BBC, a voice purportedly belonging to Buhari, was heard felicitating with Nigerians on the occassion of Eid-el Fitr.
He thanked them for their consistent prayers for his well-being and urged all citizens to always avoid hate speech and anything that can cause disunity.
A presidential source on Saturday, had earlier confirmed that “the President is getting better and will return to Nigeria very soon”.
