Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has debunked rumours making rounds on social media that he is suffering from stroke.
He also denied rumours of hiding $1.9 billion at a bank in Minnesota, United States of America.
In an opinion piece posted on Friday, titled ‘My $1.9 Billion In Minnesota Bank,’ the president’s aide said many people love hearing evil reports about government officials.
Explaining how the stroke rumour started on social media, Adesina said he was returning from an event when he came across former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode at the airport. They took pictures which was later posted online.

However, due to the slanted camera angle that made Adesina’s clothes seem baggy, some persons started peddling rumours that he has stroke.
He added, “And what next? Some people subjected my arm and legs to Photoshop, twisting them further, making me appear as a stroke patient. Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.
“Those who know me would testify that I like a good laugh. I laughed till my ribs ached, and I put my two feet up in the air. They were having a baleful ball, while I was having the time of my life. Life and health belong to God. And He has not denied me of that grace. Why then do the heathens rage, and the people imagine vain things? Let them continue to wail, and we will continue to laugh, and say; ‘back to sender.”
