There’s a storm gathering at the doorsteps of the Presidency – the President, his media team and the wife of the President. The Governor of Ogun State and Daisy Danjuma may also be complicit.

That’s a tweet from A Twitter user, Gimba Kakanda, a contributor to Sahara Reporters and Premium Times. He was referring to these photos that were revealed on 29th of January by the Presidency as further proof of the President’s well being.
The Presidency released the photos saying his wife, Aisha Buhari had visited him in the United Kingdom and so these photos were supposed to be proof that the President is well and fine.
Now, this Mr Kakanda is saying that he has proof that these photos were taken in 2015 and if the the Federal Government (read: @abikedabiri) denies it, he’ll publish his proof.
He’s however shared said proof with people he trust like the satirist, ElNathan John.
Unlike you, I don't wish my President ill health let alone death. I only refuse to participate in the lie. Nigerians deserve the truth.

And he cannot even say he did
