Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has described those wishing President Buhari death are very wicked people.
Recall that a section of the media (not this one) had announced that the President had died in a London hospital.
When that news did not fly, they claimed he tried to commit suicide.
The fake stories emerged just hours after Buhari began his vacation in London on 19 January.
President Muhammadu Buhari is expected back in office 6 February.
Obasanjo said the Nigerians behind the despicable acts ought to be praying for Buhari’s ”quick recovery” and return to Nigeria.
The ex-President made his position known on Friday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, through his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi.
“Instead of embarking on such worrisome declaration, all that the President needed are our prayers and best wishes.
“This will ginger his morale to come back stronger and better.
“No normal human being will wish an elderly person dead irrespective of their differences.
“If you don’t like him, wait for another election, not going about to say he is dead.
“No matter his health situation, we should pray for him to recover quick and come back stronger and better.
“For anyone wishing him dead, such person or group of persons are callous, wicked and treacherous.
“I was also rumored to have died almost 12 times.
“I don’t know what they derive from doing so, but they should seek for forgiveness,” Obasanjo said.
Obasanjo finally nailed the fake news regarding the death of the president. According to him, President Buhari is alive and well.
