Nigerians are at war with one another over claims by President Muhammadu Buhari’s sister that she speaks with the President daily and even every 10 hours. They have been clashing on the social media with the President’s supporters wishing him quick recovery and his detractors saying he had died or should quickly die and allow the country in crisis to recover.

Hajiya Rakiya, the only surviving elder sister of President Buhari, appealed to Nigerians to continue to pray for the well being of the President, instead of spreading rumours about his health.

President Buhari’s sister said the Nigerian leader is hale and hearty and there is nothing suggesting things were as bad as many had claimed in mischievous rumours.

Rumours have been spreading like wild fire that President Buhari had either died in the United Kingdom where he is on medical vacation or was under intensive care.

But the Presidency had dismissed such rumours as malicious and warned that those behind them would be arrested and prosecuted. President Buhari, who was due to resume work on Monday, February 6, extended his stay in London to attend to his health.

With that extension, the social media went agog with those who had claimed that the President was incapacitated, saying they had been vindicated. As supporters of Buhari and his detractors clashed on the social media, on Wednesday, The News Agency of Nigeria quoted President Buhari’s 84-year old sister as saying that she speaks with him every day. He is very well. He’s not dead. Not about to die anytime soon.

She said when she was recently in Saudi Arabia, she was even speaking with the President every ten hours.

The reactions were swift after her story was published on simonateba.com and the article shared on facebook.com/thepresidency.

Nigerians went for each other’s throats with those wishing the President quick recovery and those saying he had long died. It was a free for all. Read some of the comments below.

Celestine Ilo NnabuikeI pray for quick recovery of mr. President. But how did we get into this kind of mess, is pmb sister our information minister or any member of the president s spokes men. APC have realized that talk is cheap hence they can’t even manage information bothering on pmb health status. What a misguided government
