Following the trending rumor that Buhari has tested positive to COVID-19 and he has been flown to Cuba, Nigerians on social media have demanded a live broadcast from the president while trending the hash tag #whereisthepresident on Twitter.
Despite Garba Shehu releasing a press statement saying Buhari is busy with keeping Nigerians safe, Buhari’s Twitter handle tweeting that the President has received extensive briefings on the state of the nation and Bashir, his SA on social media uploadung a picture to show us Buhari is still working by 9:48PM citizens are still in doubt of the President’s present health conditions and insist on a live broadcast.
Nigerians are intensify their efforts and doing what they have to do to keep this govt on its toes as the coronavirus pandemic surges.
It is believed that the uncoordinated press statements by Garba Shehu is a sign that Buhari is not in the country.
Rumors are very easy to dispel. Had the President issued a two minutes broadcast to the Nation. All he has to do is tell us to stay safe and stay at home.
Sharing pictures of him working at his desk on social media is not a great way of dispelling rumors.
The rumors of the President testing positive started after his Chief of Staff Abba Kyari tested positive.
