President Buhari rumoured dead again, Residents flee Ekiti, Naira appreciates to 386/dollar and other major headlines missed today!

Dear KFBers, we have got loads of interesting stories in tonight's #MajorHeadlinesYouMissed Today feature...enjoy!
President Muhammadu Buhari leaving Nigeria for London 
A purported UK based news website has again reported that President Buhari has been confirmed dead in London.
The unconfirmed rumour, which is not based on any convincing evidence, is coming barely eight days after the Nigerian President flew to London for his scheduled follow-up medical treatment.
It would be recalled that similar rumours from the same platform in the past have proven to be false.
The wild rumour of the President's death began to spread again for the second time in the last four months on the internet on Sunday evening, May 14, 2017 after a fresh report by Metro UK.
President Buhari returned to London on Sunday, May 7, 2017 for a scheduled follow-up medical checkup after receiving the recently released 82 Chibok girls.
Earlier, President Buhari had spent 50 days there between January 19, 2017 and March 10, 2017 on a medical vacation in London.
However, on Saturday, May 13, 2017, Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari had said no one except the president himself can tell the world what is wrong with him.
Adesina said “It is only the president himself that can declare that. It is within his prerogative to do that. Nobody can do it for him. Not even the doctors treating him can do it for him. Under the Hippocratic Oath, nobody can do it except the patient.
“Nobody; under the Hippocratic Oath, it says that even the doctor has no right to reveal the health status of his patient to anybody. So, it’s only Mr President that can say what exactly is wrong with him," he said.
On Sunday, Adesina tweeted on President Buhari.
"Why do some people rage and imagine vain things? It is the counsel of God that shall stand. May God bless all those praying for PMB," he tweeted.

Naira appreciates to 386/dollar 

The naira has appreciated to 386 agast the United States dollar as the Central Bank of Nigeria continues to supply dollars into the foreign exchange market.

The local unit closed at 386/dollar on Friday, having closed at 390/dollar daily in the past one week.
The CBN had supplied over $380m into the forex market a week ago.
According to financial and currency experts, the naira’s outlook remains stable in the near term as the regulator steps up efforts to improve dollar liquidity and achieve exchange rate convergence.
The naira firmed to about 305.60 to the dollar on the interbank market on Friday, up from 305.1/dollar on Thursday.

 Don’t lose hope in Nigeria, Adeboye urges Christians

The  General Overseer (Worldwide), Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, in Jos on Sunday urged Christians not to lose hope in Nigeria but to believe that there is no problem impossible for God to solve.
The cleric also urged Nigerians  to maintain a peaceful disposition towards one another, no matter the situation they found themselves, saying it was only through such acts that their prayers would be answered.
Adeboye spoke at the RCCG inter-denominational service held at Kassa in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State, where he rounded off the RCCG 2017 Northern Ministers and Workers Conference, with the theme, “The Almighty.”

Residents flee Ado-Ekiti over one-year power outage

Life has become miserable for residents of six communities along Igirigiri Road in Odo Ado area of Ado-Ekiti as a one-year power outage has crippled socioeconomic activities.
Landlords in the communities are calling on Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) to power a transformer recently repaired by the Chairman
of Ado Ekiti Local Government, Ayodeji Ogunsakin, to the tune of N2 million.
They said the prolonged blackout has led to a mass exodus of residents
including tenants from their houses which has deprived them of income as a good number of them (landlords) are pensioners.
The affected communities are Ayunbo 1, Ayunbo 2, Ayisola 1, Ayisola 2,
Umesi and Akinyede.
Youths are consequently planning a public protest but are being calmed down by the elders who fear that the protest could turn violent.
