The Economist Disowns Fake Publication Against President Buhari
The Economist, a London-based magazine, has disowned a publication which claims that Nigerians have shown unprecedented level of patience with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The publication has been making rounds on the social media and on some websites in the country, and beyond.
A letter dated January 18, 2018, written and signed by the Africa Editor of the magazine, Jonathan Rosenthal, reads:
“It has come to my attention that an article has been circulating on social media and been published on various websites that purports to have been written or published by The Economist.
“The article with the headline ‘The Unprecedented Level of Patience Shown to Buhari’ was not written nor published by The Economist. Any claims connecting it to The Economist are false.”
