Mr. Bashir Ahmed, the Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, has described as fake the social media reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has embarked on a 20-day vacation to London on Saturday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that some online media outfits, including Saharareporters and Summitpostnews, on Saturday reported that the president departed Abuja on April 9, 2022, for another three weeks vacation in London.
The Summitpostnews quoted a statement issued by one of the president’s spokesmen allegedly saying that the Nigerian leader would be back in Abuja on May 10, 2022.
However, Ahmed on his verified Twitter account on Saturday dismissed the reports, saying:
”The news going round that President Muhammadu Buhari has embarked on a 20-day vacation trip to London is fake.
”The president is in Abuja and he is not planning to embark on any trip to London.”
