The presidency has debunked an audio making the rounds that President Muhammadu Buhari has been flown abroad for treatment over coronavirus.
There is an audio in circulation online that President Buhari and his Chief of Staff, Mr. Abba Kyari, have been flown out of the country for treatment.
In the audio, a lady narrated how the alleged trip was arranged, claiming that she got the information about it from her friend whose hubby is a pilot contacted to fly President Buhari and Mr. Kyari.
A tweet, however, on the Presidency’s handle, Thursday night, described the audio as “concocted,” adding that Buhari was at work in his office that night.
It, therefore, called on Nigerians to disregard the audio, saying it is “fake news.”Presidency Nigeria✔@NGRPresident
The concocted audio message about President @MBuhari’s whereabouts should be totally disregarded. It is Fake News in its entirety. The President tonight at the State House, at work.
