AAUDIO SALLAH MESSAGE: It wasn’t Buhari that spoke –Fani-Kayode

The former Aviation Minister and notable critic of the current administration, Femi Fani-Kayode, has accused the Presidency of deceiving Nigerians with a purported audio Sallah message from President Muhammadu Buhari.

The BBC had carried reports on Sunday on its Hausa service of an audio sallah message purported to be the voice of President Buhari, which was also said to have been broadcast by some radio stations in the country.

The purported message was in Hausa.

However, in a tweet on his twitter handle on Sunday, Fani-Kayode not only denied that the voice was that of Buhari but also described whoever was behind the message as insulting Nigerians by speaking in Hausa language.

“It was not Muhammadu Buhari that spoke in today’s Sallah day audio recording. And for whoever it was to address the nation in Hausa is insulting,” he said.

Like Fani-Kayode, the social media has been awash with reactions over the purported message by President Buhari, with many lambasting the President and his aides for not telling Nigerians the whole truth about his exact whereabouts, the nature of his illness and present state of health.
The president left Nigeria on May 7, and has not been seen, or heard from publicly since then.

    Nigeria is getting used to lies. President Buhari is Just deceiving you people, what stop him from handing over totally to Osinbajo but because the northerners won’t want to erode of power, they wont ever want yorubas there and yet the Yorubas are not sensible enough to fight this. Well Biafra will settle us soon

      Such a dreamer you are. Happy dreaming! All those who crave Biafra will find themselves in grave soon

  • Animashaun Ayodeji

    President Buhari has always been for and about the Hausas alone, but he won’t descend so low to address the entire country in Hausa! The presidency should keep lying to itself

    • yanju omotodun

      The audio is full of lies. They are just deceiving themselves

  • Abeni Adebisi

    President Buhari has definitely lost his memory! The only memory left in his brain must definitely be Hausa language, I’m sure he has even forgotten he’s the president of a country called Nigeria. And the call… they must have persuaded him to talk also

    • Anita Kingsley

      This must have been what happened. We now have useless presidency that are supposed to be jailed for National deceit!

  • Nonso Ezeugo

    Buhari can’t deceive us any more because his a dead man looking for who to buried him
