A section of Nigerians have welcomed the latest pictures of President Buhari in London with disbelief as they point out loopholes in the purported hoax.
Since the Presidency released pictures of All Progressives Congress chieftains, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande paying an august visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Abuja House in London, cynics have raised eyebrows about the authenticity of the pictures.
One social media user, Thompson Idagu Yeche has made a case against the originality of the pictures via his Facebook page. The netizen questioned why President Buhari with his highly esteemed and privileged status will be wearing one single brown Jalabia at every major visit paid to him in London where he is currently recuperating.
A vivid study of Buhari’s wardrobe and physical appearances reveals the Nigerian leader of Fulani descent isn’t known to evidently repeat clothes as shown during his controversial vacation in Europe.
“I wonder why someone would intentionally choose to wear the same outfit since he traveled to London”.
“Is someone telling me now that our president went to London with one cloth?”
“Na kwesion (question) I dey ask so no carry your hatred come my wall.” he asked.
From the collage of pictures, a frail-looking Buhari wore his seeming favourite brown Jalabia with the same white cap while attending to the executive governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and then yesterday while meeting with a former governor of Lagos – Bola Tinubu and his closest ally, Bisi Akande.
These claims popularly shared among Nigerians is coming on the heels of rumours that the President could have either passed away in the United Kingdom or is currently in a ‘vegetable’ state concealed from Nigerians by an influential cabal.
Meanwhile, the wild rumours might vanish into the thin air like smoke if Buhari returns to Nigeria tomorrow, Saturday according to a Presidency source.
