Nigerian President: Dead? Alive?

             has reported that president Umaru Musa Yar'Adua of Nigeria is dead while the Economic Confidential insists that he is alive. 
According to the Economic Confidential who quoted Yar'Adua's spokesperson and Senior Special Adviser on Communication, Mr. Olusegun Adeniyi, the Nigerian president who has been missing for more than two months, is alive and kicking.
Meanwhile Nigerian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Abdullah Aminchi told the Sun that President Umaru Yar’Adua was alive and that he was with the ailing number one citizen earlier on Monday.
“I was with the President earlier today (Monday). He is improving,” Aminchi said.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in its own version, reported that Mr. Yar'Adua had broken his silence by talking to the news outlet, promising to resume duty shortly.
The papers are full of speculation about the whereabouts of Mr. Yar'Adua since he left Nigeria last year November to attend to his failing health abroad. No one in particular could say for sure what exactly is going on. 
An international News agency recently reported that Mr. Yar'Adua is secretly dead. However, a Nigerian pastor, Primate Ayodele has predicted that Yar'Adua won't die. 
Small Voice at the moment cannot say whether Mr. Yar'Adua is dead or not, but certainly will keep you posted.
