Looks like Buhari traveled out of Nigeria yesterday for medical treatment…and Ekiti state
governor Ayo Fayose has something to say about it. Read the press
statement from his office below…
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose
has said that the secret trip made, by the All Progressives
Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Major General Mohammadu Buhari
(rtd) to the United Kingdom (UK) enroute United States of America (USA)
for medical treatment has shown that the APC leaders, especially
Senator Bola Tinubu were covering up his (Buhari) true health status for
their selfish gains.
Though a statement later issued by the APC Presidential Campaign
Organisation said that Buhari was on a short working visit to the UK,
Governor Fayose, in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on
Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said the party was
not saying the truth.
The governor said; “The truth is that Buhari travelled out to seek medicare in USA.
“If the APC people are saying otherwise, let them publish the
picture of Buhari boarding the plane and granting interview to Aviation
Correspondents at the Abuja Airport.
“While I am happy that the APC people that are packaging Buhari
finally hearkened to my plea that they should allow him (Buhari) to seek
medicare abroad, I must say that it was evil for the APC to have lied
that Buhari travelled on a working visit.
“These APC political merchants should say the truth and save Nigeria from the possibility of another Yar’Adua experience.
“They should tell Nigerians that Buhari is actually sick and lack
capacity to rule Nigeria and that they are only packaging him, hoping
that he will become incapacitated if he becomes president so that they
can take over power by proxy.”
While wishing Buhari speedy recovery, Governor Fayose said; “Like I
have maintained, the north should wait till 2019 to produce a younger,
energetic and healthy president of Nigeria.”
