– Former British parliamentarian, Eric Stuart Joyce, has urged Nigerians to asked questions about President Buhari’s health
– Joyce said in a democracy, Nigerians shouldn’t be kept in the dark about the president’s health Controversial British parliamentarian, Eric Stuart Joyce, who earlier claimed that President Buhari is dead, has spoken about the president’s health again. In a new tweet, Joyce said in a democracy, it is only fair for Nigerians to be confident that the president is alive. Recall that NAIJ.com earlier reported that Joyce stirred controversy when he tweeted at the Wife of Nigerian President, Aisha Buhari, condoling her over the president’s alleged death. He however received strong condemnations from Nigerians and foreigners alike, as Joyce cited a fake UK Metro website as his source.
The ex-parliamentarian who was impeached from the British parliament has now spoken up again. Joyce, while replying to a tweet by a Nigerian who asked him to provide evidence of the alleged death, said: “No. In a democracy, it’s fair to expect to be confident your president is alive.”
Meanwhile, the presidency has since responded to Joyce’s allegations that President Buhari is dead. In a series of tweets by Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, the presidency described the information as plain lies spread by vested interests to create panic. Shehu said: “Baseless rumors are trending again that an unpleasant thing has happened to our beloved President, Muhammadu Buhari. “Nothing unpleasant has happened to the President. No cause for apprehension. Thanks for the many calls.”
