The presidency on Saturday maintained that the nephew of President Muhammadu Buhari, Mamman Daura, was not flown to the United Kingdom for medical attention.
In a post on his Twitter handle, the Personal Assistant to Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmed, stated that reports indicating Daura is in London for medical attention should be disregarded.
According to Bashi9r, there was no iota of truth in the report as Daura is hale and hearty.
He wrote, “No iota of truth in the earlier story that Mallam Mamman Daura was flown to London for an emergency medical attention.
“He is hale and hearty. Nigerians should disregard that story.”
Recall that were reports that the President close confidant was flown to UK for medical care.
But speaking to ThisDay, Mohammed, one of the son of Mamman Daura, insisted his father does not have renal problems or breathing difficulties.
“For the past couple of days, we have been forced to deny numerous times a completely fabricated story about our father’s well-being.”
“Alhamdulillah. Baba is perfectly fine. He neither has a history of renal problems nor does he have any breathing difficulties like was suggested in the concocted news story,” Mohammed said.
He also warned that anyone rejoicing over the news, should “know one thing about life is that no one makes it out alive. We should collectively be humbled by our own mortality.”
