Yar’adua’s Family Threatens To Sue Media Houses by Beaf: 10:40pm On Dec 09, 2009
[size=14pt]Yar’Adua’s family threatens to sue media houses[/size]
By Zacheaus Somorin, 12.08.2009
Tuesday, December 8, 2009

The family of President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua said yesterday that it would not hesitate to institute legal action against any media house that continues to report the president's health maliciously.

A statement signed by ''The President's Sister'' , Hajia Mairo Musa Yar'Adua, on behalf of the family said its attention has been drawn to ''the false, malicious and obviously sponsored media reports that suggested that the president's mother, Hajia Dada Habib Yar'Adua asked Mr President to resign from office on account of ill health.

The reports, according to Hajia Mairo insinuated that Hajia Yar’Adua is disagreeing  with the President’s wife, Turai, whom the newspapers claimed was urging the President to sit tight, saying there was no time that the president's mother suggested so.

“To put the records straight, the President’s mother has never spoken to the media.  She enjoys a cordial relationship with her daughter-in-law, Turai. The president’s mother contrary to media reports is supportive of Mr President’s foray into politics and has always encouraged him to render selfless service to the good people of Nigeria” the family said.   

The family also said that instead of the media turning itself into malleable tools of ''blackmail by disgruntled politicians'' it should rather ''cross check facts before going to press” most especially at “this critical stage of the nation’s development.

Sequel to this,  Hajia Mairo Yar’Adua has instructed all the media houses “responsible for these falsehoods to retract the misleading reports and apologize to the family or face legal action”.

I think the whole country needs to tell them to go to hell.
Yaradua is an employee for all Nigerians and we have the right to know what is happening to him, and when no one tells us anything, then, we have the right to assume, however, we are responsible for our own assumption.

When the powers that be withold information on the man we "voted" into power, why are they surprised that the rumour mill has become an overheating industry?

Even when Cuba's strongman, Fidel Castro was ill, the whole World saw his hospital pictures (and Cuba is no democracy); when he fell on one occasion and collapsed on another, the whole World was informed of what was going on.

Re: Yar’adua’s Family Threatens To Sue Media Houses by puskin: 1:05am On Dec 10, 2009
^ Exactly, so why should Yar'Adua's own be any different.
To think that Nigeria is even in a democratic setting gives me the "creeps".
