The presidency has denied reports that President Muhammadu Buhari promised to resign if he does not recover from his illness. On Wednesday, speculations were rife that the President has vowed to step down, if he fails to recover.
But his Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmed, dismissed the report on Thursday via his Twitter account. Bashir said the report is “not true”. He added that Buhari will return when his doctors permit him. “The report is NOT true, Pres. Buhari is doing better and he will return to the country the day his doctors give him a go-ahead,” he added.
