He cautioned those spreading the rumours to remember what happened to those that initiated rumours about Nnamdi Azikiwe’s death.

He said all those who formed burial committee for Azikiwe later died while Azikiwe was alive.

“Why would that be an issue and we like to speculate the worse.

“It is an unnecessary controversy. He is entitled to his vacation and we have seen US presidents going to Camp David to have a rest. We saw Cameron photograph wearing bikini with his wife in Spain on vacation.

“If you journalists don’t go on vacation, it is because you have not fought for your right to take out time from your work,” he said.
