Former President, Muhammadu Buhari has debunked report of being in exile, described the news of him fleeing the country and in exile as fake.
Speaking through his spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari said he is with his family in Daura hometown of Katsina state.
Reacting to a newspaper report that Buhari has gone on exile after handing over to Tinubu, Shehu said there was no veracity in the report and advised media offices to always confirm their reports
He 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.”
