A former Governor of Abia , Orji Kalu, has said that those peddling rumours that President Muhammadu Buhari is on life support have been proved wrong.

Mr. Kalu, who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Abuja.

He said the visit of Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to Mr. Buhari in London had shown that the rumour peddlers were liars.

Mr. Kalu said everything possible should be done to reduce increasing hate speeches and ‘death wish’ in the country.

“The confirmation of the President’s health status by the acting president and wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari is something good Christians and good Muslims should embrace with joy.

“Those wishing the President dead and spreading false rumours about his health are exposing their ignorance about life and death.

“I do not understand what joy people derive in wishing their fellow human being dead. Anybody can fall sick, but no good Christian and Muslim would wish someone dead,’’ he said.

The former governor also commended Mr. Osinbajo for the visit, noting that he had “not only shown leadership, but also maintained the virtues of the President.”

He also urged all Nigerians to pray for Mr. Buhari’s quick recovery in the “hope for a better and stronger Nigeria.”

    But you said PMB would return on June 11. Now that he didn’t, how do you want us to believe he is not in the state described by Fayose? Please face your corruption trial; this tongue in the cheek will not help you.

    What do you expect Orji Uzor to do ? He was being hunted by EFCC and as a smart guy he joined APC and instantly became Friend of Buhari and believe me all his pending case with EFCC will be quashed soonest . That is ZOO republic for you.
