Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sen. Walid Jibrin, yesterday said that PDP should be excluded from those dishing out rumour of the death of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Jibrin, who described those spreading such rumour as power seekers, advised them to revert to offering prayers of recovery for the President.
He warned those trying to involve PDP to have a change of heart, as the party has a name to maintain, adding, “as a good opposition, we shall never engage in wishing President Buhari dead, instead, we are engaged in special prayers for Mr. President and sincerely sympathise with his family and the Acting President of the country.”
Condemning the dangerous speculations on the state of President Buhari’s health, PDP BoT Chairman said, “the PDP will like to be completely spared out of the rumoured death and speculation of state of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ill health being spread by some power seekers, who are eager to take over from him. The ill health does not deserve the speculation going on.
“PDP believes that it is God that brings and takes life. We equally believe that power belongs to God, he gives it to whom he wills and gives it to whom he likes.
“Instead of some power seekers engaging themselves in spreading rumour, they should revert to offering prayers for the President. All those trying to involve PDP in wishing the President dead, should better stop as PDP has a good name to maintain.”
