ABU Teaching Hospital Discredits Buhari Cancer Report – APC Campaign Office •Denies Foreign Trip For Medical Check Up

Buhari-Lai MohammedThe Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) Shika, Zaria, has discredited the purported medical report said to have emanated from the hospital indicating that General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) was diagnosed with prostate cancer, the Buhari campaign office said.

The All Progressives Congress presidential campaign organization, in a statement by its media and publicity director, Malam Garba Shehu Saturday, described as disdainful, distractive, mischievous, fake and fallacious, the trending news report of an alleged prostate cancer condition of its presidential flag bearer, Buhari, being credited to a source from the renowned Teaching Hospital.

The statement said “It (report of cancer) is untrue and condescending of its exponents. I have it on good authority that GMB has not visited the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital in the last five years. So, how can anyone say that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer last October, barely three months ago?”

The campaign organization added that “this is the highest point of political distraction, malice and mischief. The report was not only fake but unfounded. I have spoken to impeccable sources at ABUTH all of whom deny the report and also claimed that the letterhead used was not their regular one, and that Dr. Bala Mohammed that purportedly approved the false Medical Report is not on the personnel list of that department”.


The Buhari campaign spokesperson said “sources at ABUTH also disclosed that “Medical Report analysis only come from Laboratory Technologists and not Medical Doctors as handwritten in this particular case, stressing that General Buhari did not attend the hospital for cancer or any other ailment”.

The campaign also dismissed as figment of the imagination of “wicked and evil persons”, rumours that Buhari may be travelling to the United States towards the end of this month for medical check-up.

The statement, while dismissing the report as fabrications, however, said that “as a prominent leader of the opposition, many interests across the world want him (GMB) over for political and diplomatic consultations”, adding that the “invitation to the US may not be unconnected to this”.


  1. Pdp is so desperate, knowing that their hold on power at the centre has come to an end. We will continue to laugh of their folly. The spirit of error has come upon PDP and jonathan. They will be defetaed come feb 14, 2015

  2. Another desperation from the enemies of the masses, first they tried to kill him literally – God saved him, even as about 18 people with hime were killed; Then they tried to assassinate his character, that has failed; Now they tried to assassinate his health – very pitiful lots. God willing we would all vote en masse for Buhari and start the process of taking out country back under his leadership to the path of peace, unity and prosperity once again.
