News: Buhari’s rumoured death: Is a 70 year old man not entitled to medical check up? – Anenih

By Henry Umoru

ABUJA- FORMER Chairman, Board of Trustees of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Chief TonyAnenih, Sunday condemned in very strong terms, the masterminds of the media report that the health condition of President Muhammadu Buhari could have worsened, leading to possible death in Germany.He advised the media, especially operators of online media platforms to always verify sensitive reports before they publish, saying that by doing so, they will save their news subjects and themselves unnecessary embarrassment.File: Chief Anthony Akhakon AnenihReacting to the development, Anenih in a statement in Abuja, dismissed the report as the handiwork of those who only did not wish Buhari well and those whodid not mean well for Nigeria, just as he urged those persons to fear God and pray for leaders of the country.According to Anenih, those behind the report, in what he described as their hurried bid to propagate theirmischievous and false report, forgot that the president left Nigeria for London and not Germany on vacation during which period he would undergo routine medical check-up.The Elder Statesman said, “This attitude of doing false reports about the death of our leaders has become characteristic in the mediaand it is not good. I was a victim of this in May last year when I was reported to have died in a London hospital. Former President Ibrahim Babangida was also a victim of such sinister rumoured death last year. I wonder what those behind the false and mischievous reports intended to gain from them.“Fabricating such negative and false reports of death about fellow human beings is wicked and ungodly. It is clearly against Biblical admonition that we should pray for leaders and people in authority.“At this time of economic recession, rather than wish President Buhari dead, Nigerians should fervently pray for him to enjoy good health to be able to take the country out of the woods.“The masterminds of these false reports should desist from such despicable act that only portrays them as inhuman. They should fear God, ask for His mercy and forgiveness so that they do not invite the wrath of God upon their heads.”Also yesterday, a group under the aegis, Osun Buharist Society described the rumour as callous, barbaric and ungodly that President Muhammadu Buhari has passed away in Germany.In a statement signed by its publicity secretary , Mallam Abiodun Kamar, the group categorised those spreading the rumour as “agents of darkness who are working round the clock toset the country ablaze”, warning that ” it is time to out the loss of 2015 at our back.“What we are witnessing is the desperation of a power elite angry and bitter for its loss at poll and is fatally plotting to plunge the country into chaos. We the ordinary citizens must resist them.We must say no to evil plot.” President Buhari is entitled to medical leave and he duly ceded power to his Vice President, a man of God in politics. Is a 70 year old man not entitled to medical check up?“Now is the time to pray for our leaders .The holy books indeed command us to respect and support constituted authority.” We can not as patriots wish ourselves dead talkless of our president .We appeal to all Nigerians to unite behind President Buhari as he battles the economic parasites who destroyed our economy.”
