The Presidency has warned Nigerians to beware of merchants of fake news, explaining that President Muhammadu Buhari is not embarking on a 20-day travel.

Some online news platform had claimed that the President will be travelling to Saudi Arabia, Austria and the United Kingdom, citing a statement that was not signed by his spokesperson.

In response to the fake news, Femi Adesina, spokesperson to President Buhari described the report as concocted information.

“Purveyors of fake and concocted information are currently on overdrive, and Nigerians are urged to be careful what they consume as news, and also share with others, particularly from the social media,” he said.

“An unfounded information has been making the rounds that President Muhammadu Buhari is billed to travel to the United Kingdom for 20 days, and from there proceed to Saudi Arabia, and then Austria. Fake. It is nothing but falsehood from mischievous minds.

“Members of the First Family, Ministers, top government officials, the military, and other key institutions, are equally objects of this orchestrated falsehood, coming from enemies of national cohesion.

“We urge Nigerians to be discriminatory about what they accept as credible information, and restrain themselves from sharing what they have not authenticated as genuine. That is how we can all collectively beat the malevolent minds at their pernicious games”.
