Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal on Tuesday advised those passing uncomplimentary comments on President Muhammad Buhari to stop, saying that speculative information on the President’s health would not help the government.

Instead, Tambuwal called on Nigerians to rally round Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, saying it is the only way to take the country to the next level.

He said “Nigerians should refuse to be manipulated and influenced negatively through fake and speculative news, misinformation and disinformation, but exercise patience, cooperate with and support the government.

“Nigerians must co-exist peacefully and be our brothers keepers.

“This is critical because crisis prone areas affect investor’s confidence, while the consequence is stunted development.

“Hence, we need to support this government so that the agenda of accelerated and sustained socioeconomic development will be entrenched.
