Presidency releases picture of Buhari to stop death rumors

Buhari will speak to Trump via telephone from London where he is observing a medical vacation.

Here are three things you should know about the planned conversation:

The planned conversation has caught Nigerians by surprise due to Buhari’s long silence since leaving the country on January 19 for a 10-day medical vacation in London.

The Presidency has been forced to deny death rumours fuelled by the president’s lack of communication and insists that the president is “hale and hearty.”

However, concerns about the president’s health were intensified when he wrote the Senate on February 5 requesting an indefinite extension of his medical leave.

In the letter, which was addressed to Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Buhari told the Senate that he would not return till “the doctors had ruled out certain factors.”

In a bid to quell the rumours however, the Presidency has released photos of the president in London; first of him resting in a chair at the Abuja House and subsequently receiving All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders, Bola Tinubu and Bisi Akande.

The president was also pictured in a photo with his wife, Aisha during his stay in London.
