...Says Buhari not sick, leading the charge against Covid-19 -APC
The ruling All Progressives Congress APC has denied reports that President Muhammadu Buhari may have tested positive for Covid-19 and flown abroad for treatment, saying the president is hale and hearty and has been leading the charge against the deadly virus.
This came as the party advised Nigerians to desist from conspiracy theories regarding Saturday's early morning explosion in Ondo state.
Accusing those it described as wailers, of wanting the president dead since 2015, the APC in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu also added that while few Nigerians want a "talking president", majority of those who gave him his current mandate want a "working president".
According to the APC, "the wailers who have severally professed their death wish for President Buhari since 2015 have, again, found their voices amid the coronavirus outbreak. From conjuring and spreading fake news on the president's coronavirus test result, to spurious allegation of hijacking of a teaching hospital ventilator to the villa and to the purported smuggling of the President to the United Kingdom, they are up to their ignominious pastime and tired antics."
