APC presidential candidate Buhari dispels rumours of ill health

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), retired General Muhammadu Buhari, has dispelled reports making the rounds that he is suffering from a chronic illness.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja, General Buhari said he would not have been able to go on campaigns across the country if he is suffering from ill health.

He asked politicians to focus on issues rather than engaging in mudslinging and character assassination.

The Katsina-born politician, his running mate, Prof Yemi Osinbajo and other APC stalwarts have been campaigning around the geo-political zones of the country canvassing for votes ahead of the presidential election in February.

Medical reports allegedly obtained from the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) and shared on social media platforms shows that Buhari has been diagnosed with prostrate cancer in late 2014.
