The Presidency on Monday urged Nigerians to be careful with the news they consume and share with others, especially on social media.
This is following reports making 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.
In a statement signed by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the Presidency described the news as fake and said 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,” the statement read.
