“It's not yet in the history book of Nigeria a man like PMB, who sees nothing about this life, who placed integrity above all things, like him or hate him, deep inside your heart you know he's a good man, what wrong has he done to you as a citizen, no record showing he stole your money, his only crime is that he want to defend and protect what is rightfully yours, protect your future administratively, set a paste between good and bad governance.”

"You must not agree with what I said, but I am a citizen too, I reserve the right to my opinion. God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria."

Meanwhile, the Presidency has denied a report by Sahara Reporters on Sunday, September 3, which claimed President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Abuja on Monday, September 4, 2017 for a trip to Washington, DC.

The online news platform had said in its report that the trip from Nigeria to the US is reportedly at the invitation of President Donald Trump.

But President Buhari's personal assistant on social media, Lauretta Onochie in a tweet said the report was totally untrue.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has also debunked the news being circulated via a parody Twitter account and an old NTA news video that President Muhammadu Buhari is travelling or has travelled to the U.S. is fake.
