On Saturday, January 21, over 100,000 people searched ‘Is Buhari dead’ on Google and at least 5,000 people still search the subject daily.
While Buhari is away, Yemi Osinbajo met with a delegation from General Electric led by their CEO, Jeff Immelt
Buhari departed Nigeria on Thursday, January 19 for a two-week vacation in London where he would undergo medical check-ups.
