Things keep getting worse for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammed Buhari as attempts to trick Nigerians into believing Buhari is not on a medical trip to the United Kingdom keep getting exposed by political strategist, Mukhtar Alex Dan’Iyan who goes by the Twitter handle, @MrAyeDee.

Dan’Iyan has again uncovered another lie and a failed attempt to fool the Nigerian people and international community by General Buhari and his APC handlers that he is not ill and on a political trip to the United Kingdom.

Using his Twitter handle, Dan’Iyan has revealed that former Prime Minister of UK, Tony Blair was not in London this weekend and could not have met with General Buhari as his team want Nigerians to believe.

The APC had released photos of a supposed Saturday, February 22, 2015 meeting between Buhari and Blair which has now been laid bare as an attempt to deceive. The photo was tweeted by APC stalwart, Senator Bukola Saraki. It was later exposed as an old photo and not taken during the weekend.

Findings by Dan’Iyan have it that Tony Blair’s office denies holding such a meeting with Buhari in London this weekend because Blair is actually in Serbia. You may read more on this attempt to deceive the Nigerian people by General Buhari and the APC in a report by Dan’Iyan at Ad76.

Earlier, the retired general’s UK trip has been unravelled by The Trent as a medical trip which the APC tried to pass off as a political trip during which Buhari would meet with “key members of the British political establishment and interact with some global institutions with stakeholder interest in the affairs of Nigeria… and give a talk at the prestigious foreign policy hub, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatam House in London.”

It was discovered that Buhari was not billed to speak at the Chatam House in London and the General has not made any public appearance since Friday, when he was whisked out of Nigeria by his campaign team. The state of Buhari’s health remains a source of concern to Nigerians as the country has experienced electing a gravely ill man into the office of president in 2007.

The 2007 election of Musa Yar’Adua into the office of President led to a huge constitutional crisis in Nigeria when his illness took a turn for the worse and Nigerians did not know what the state of health of their president was.
