The presidency has released President Muhammadu Buhari’s voice message to Nigerians to debunk reports that he is suffering from speech impairment.
In the audio recording, aired on some radio stations, the president was heard felicitating with Nigerians on the occasion of Eid-el-fitr.
He called on Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love, peace and unity
The president also thanked the people for their consistent prayers for his well-being.
However, the message had drawn criticism as interest groups condemned the president for speaking in Hausa language.
The National Publicity Secretary of the Pan-Yoruba Social Political group, Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin said that the statment was flat as it did not address the pressing issue in Nigeria.
He said that Nigeria is a multi-lingua nation with English as its official lanuguage, adding that is not good eneough that President Buhari chose to convey his message in Hausa.
