‘Proof of live’, Buhari hosts Tinubu, Akande in London

In what appears as irrefutable evidence that President Muhammadu Buhari is really not in hospital, or incapacitated as has been suggested in some quarters, photos have appeared of the president playing host to some leaders on his party, the APC.

The leaders of the party that visited the president in his London residence, included former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and a former chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande.

The rumour mills have been inundated with stories that the president is in a hospital, undergoing treatment for an undisclosed ailment, even though the presidency has repeatedly refuted such claims.

Presidency officials have always said at every opportunity that the president is hale and hearty, and not in any hospital.

The rumours became stronger when the president at the end of his ten-day vacation wrote to the Senate seeking an extension of his holiday, with no date as to when he is likely to resume his duties.
