The Federal Government says the full wrath of the law will be brought to bear on the authors of subversive messages being circulated on the health of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The government said this in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed.

“The source/sources of the fabricated messages are already being investigated and the authors should prepare to face the consequences of their actions,’’ the minister said.

According to Mr. Mohammed, the President is hale and hearty and there is no iota of truth in the subversive messages being circulated on his health.

But it should be said that Nigerians have a right to react this way after the yaradua episode.We all remember how concerns where raised during the campaign about his health and president Obasanjo said no cause for Alarm and he frequent visits to Saudi Arabia became scary until he was brought back into the country some people claim dead.

The president left the country about 10 days and all we have seen thus far is a picture of the president.I think it is only right to quel rumors when they are rumors.This goes back to the talk about the presidential candidates releasing some health data like they do in other climes.


I remember when President Fernando Lugo of Paraguay had cancer he told the nation.It was after President Y ardua died we learnt that he had Chung Strauss syndrome.
