The obviously falsified report is dated October 16 2014 and states Buhari’s age as 72. However, the former Head of State turned 72 on December 7, almost two months after.
A fake medical report has been released online claiming to show that the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari has cancer.
The obviously falsified report is dated October 16 2014 and states Buhari’s age as 72. However, the former Head of State turned 72 on December 7, almost two months later.
The report also states the name of the hospital as “Ahmadu Bello Teaching Hospital” but the real name is “Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital.”
Buhari’s Campaign Director, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has refuted the rumours of ill-health via a statement saying:
“It (report of cancer) is untrue and condescending of its exponents. I have it on good authority that GMB has not visited the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital in the last five years. So, how can anyone say that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer last October, barely three months ago?”
“This is the highest point of political distraction, malice and mischief. The report was not only fake but unfounded. I have spoken to impeccable sources at ABUTH all of whom deny the report and also claimed that the letterhead used was not their regular one, and that Dr. Bala Mohammed that purportedly approved the false medical report is not on the personnel list of that department.”
The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose stated earlier that Buhari was being set up by former President, Olusegun Obasanjo to die in office just like late President, Umar Yar’adua.
