The Presidency has dismissed reports that a picture on the internet is a recent photo of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Saleh Shehu Ashaka, a journalist with Voice of America had posted a photo of the President, claiming that it was recently taken.
But the Presidency on Saturday dismissed the claim, stating that the picture was taken in February, during Buhari’s first medical trip.
The President’s Personal Assistant (New Media), Bashir Ahmad tweeted, “Salam Ashaka, apparently this picture like many of its kind that are being shared is not new, this particular one was taken late Feb., 2017.”
No picture of President Buhari has been released since his second medical trip to London this year.
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, who visited him last week stated that he was recuperating fast and would return soon.
