Buhari Is Not Dead, I Joked with Him Last Night, says Saraki

Senate President Bukola Saraki has stated that he had a conversation with President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently on vacation in the UK, on Wednesday night.

Saraki said the president was in high spirit, and that both of them cracked joke.

“Happy to have spoken with President Buhari tonight. He was in good spirits and joked about my working late into the night, as usual,” he tweeted.

Saraki’s tweet came hours after Hajiya Rakiya, the only surviving sister of Buhari, said since the president left in January, she has been speaking with him every day.

Buhari was expected back in the country on Sunday, but he wrote a letter to the senate, informing the legislative chamber that his vacation had been extended due to "series of tests".

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is managing the affairs of the country.
