Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has expressed disgust with uncomplimentary comments on President Muhammad Buhari in some quarters and called for caution.
He said on Tuesday that speculative information on the President’s health would not help the government.
Tambuwal called on Nigerians to rally round Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to take the country to the next level.
The governor urged Nigerians to use their sense of humanity and pray for President Muhammadu Buhari “because it is in our collective self-interest to do so”.
“Nigerians should refuse to be manipulated and influenced negatively through fake and speculative news, misinformation and disinformation, but exercise patience, cooperate with and support the government.
“Nigerians must co-exist peacefully and be our brothers keepers.
“This is critical because crisis prone areas affect investor’s confidence, while the consequence is stunted development.”
He said that there was the need to support the government so that the agenda of accelerated and sustained socioeconomic development would be entrenched.
“Also, our potential as an economic power house and a major player in continental and global sphere becomes manifest in the shortest possible time.”
