ICYMI: President Buhari is on vacation and we’ve not heard from him since he left the country.
A few days ago, he then said his vacation was no more two weeks and now indefinitely.
A lot of Nigerians are speculating things similar to what happened to former president, Musa Yar’adua
Who else is getting Yar’Adua deja vu with these Buhari holiday shenanigans? If he is sick, tell us. Stop being vague and evasive.

Other people just want him to address the country via Skype or something
Buhari should just make a video nd address Nigerians to squash all the death rumours
