Garba Shehu: Buhari not in exile

2 Min Read

Spokesman to former President Muhammadu Buhari, Garba Shehu has said that his principal is not in exile as claimed in a report by a national daily.

The newspaper had reported that insecurity in the former president’s home state of Katsina “pushed him into exile in the UK”.

Refuting the report, Shehu said that the former president is in his home in Daura, Katsina State.

He called on the media to always confirm the veracity of their reports rather than rushing to press with false narratives.

The former presidential spokesman said,  “For misleading the otherwise credible newspaper to falsely report on their front page that former President Muhammadu Buhari has “fled” and on “exile” when he is currently at home with family in Daura, Katsina State, BusinessDay newspaper should sack their reporter who didn’t do the job of checking his facts.

BusinessDay should think 10 times before running any information from the particular reporter and verify it before believing him. Every platform has tools to verify any information and we don’t expect anything less from BusinessDay.

“If they had browsed through different sources, they will have seen reports of the former President having come back home and enjoying the company of his family.

“A single fake news in a newspaper has the capability to destroy a reputation built on years of hard work.”
