Germany – The Nigerian leader, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has returned to his country after a brief trip to Germany where he was secretly treated for excessive salt ingestion.
As is customary with the administration of the most populous African nation, the President’s minders have denied the real purpose of the trip, insisting that the sudden journey to Germany was merely for sightseeing.
It is not clear how the President came to ingest such a dangerous quality of salt, but it is not thought to have anything to do with a recent hoax in the Ebola hit country. A few weeks ago, a rumour spread in the West African country claiming that taking salt bath and drinking large quantities of salt could prevent one from contracting the deadly virus.
