The Presidency has denied a photograph of President Muhammadu Buhari which was posted on social media by a journalist with Voice of America (VOA), Saleh Shehu Ashaka.
It could be recalled that Ashaka published the picture on Saturday evening and captioned it:“Buhari’s first picture in 68 days since he departed Nigeria for medical treatment in London.”
This was done in a tweet by Buhari’s Personal Assistant (New Media), Bashir Ahmad.

Salam Ashaka, apparently this picture like many of its kind that are being shared is not new, this particular one was taken late Feb., 2017. https://t.co/99SQglf8ch
