Spokesman of former President Muhammadu Buhari, Mallam Garba Shehu, has debunked claim of his principal fleeing the country and now in exile.
Reacting to a newspaper report of Buhari going on exile after handing over to President Tinubu, Shehu said there’s no truth in the report. He advised media offices to always confirm their reports.
The former President’s spokesperson further revealed that Buhari is with his family in his Daura hometown of Katsina state.
“For misleading the otherwise credible newspaper to falsely report on their front page that former President Muhammadu Buhari has “fled” and on “exile” when he is currently at home with family in Daura, Katsina State, BusinessDay newspaper should sack their reporter who didn’t do the job of checking his facts.
“BusinessDay should think 10 times before running any information from the particular reporter and verify it before believing him. Every platform has tools to verify any information and we don’t expect anything less from BusinessDay.
“If they had browsed through different sources, they will have seen reports of the former President having come back home and enjoying the company of his family.
“A single fake news in a newspaper has the capability to destroy a reputation built on years of hard work.”
