Buhari’s vacation not extended — Presidency
The Presidency has debunked the rumoured extension of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 10-working-day vacation in London.
The Presidency, had, on Tuesday night made a statement via its Twitter handle, @NGRPresident, where it noted that a story published by Tribune Online, on February 5, 2017, “is currently being mischievously circulated on social media platforms, to create the impression that it’s related to the President’s current vacation.”
The President has, however, said the public should “kindly take note of the date, 2017.
“The President has NOT extended his ongoing 10-Working-Days vacation,” the Presidency said.
As rightly noted by the Presidency, the story was “mischievously circulated” for a reason best known to its masterminds, it did not emanate from any of Tribune platforms.
It only came up on our platforms on February 5, 2017, the same day it was published on other Nigerian print and online media, and thereafter, it got expired into our archives.
