Rumors Of Maitama Sule’s Death Malicious, Unfounded – Aide


Acclaimed orator and elder statesman, Alhaji Maitama Sule, is alive, hale and hearty, his aide, Ashir Sheriff, has said.

An online medium on Monday published a story, saying the former Nigeria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations has passed on.

But Sheriff debunked the death rumor, insisting that Alhaji Sule, who holds the traditional title of Dan Masanin Kano, is alive and has not even shown any sign of ill-health.

“We just arrived Abuja today for a function in Nasarawa State tomorrow. The rumour is malicious and unfounded”, he told PREMIUM TIMES.

“As I speak to you now, he is observing his Asr prayer in his hotel room. He has not even shown sign of any sickness”, he added.

Mr. Sheriff called on the media to verify their information before publishing.

Our correspondent recalls that the last time any news of Alhaji Maitama Sule’s rumored death was carried, was in 2013.
