The Presidency has described the social media report that Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria has extended his ongoing 10 working days vacation in London as fake.
The purported fake news indicates that the President had already transmitted a letter to the National Assembly to this effect.
The official twitter handle of the presidency @NGRPresident, late Tuesday night, dismissed the report, saying it is an old story which was first circulated during the president’s vacation in Feb. 2017.
The presidency, therefore, enjoined all peace-loving citizens to ignore the fake news, saying that President Buhari had not extended his vacation.
“This story from Feb. 2017 is currently being mischievously circulated on social media platforms, to create the impression that it’s related to the president’s current vacation.
“Kindly take note of the date, 2017. The President has not extended his ongoing 10-working-day vacation,” it stated.
The fake news alert read: “Breaking: Buhari extends vacation, writes National Assembly’’
President Buhari had on August 3 commenced a 10 working days holiday.
