My Advert Not a Death Wish for Buhari – Fayose explains

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose, has declared that the
advert he placed in which he raised doubts about the health status of
the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC),
General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), was neither a death wish nor laced with
sinister motives.

Fayose clarified that his reason for taking the step was to prevent a
recurrence of constitutional crisis, which the sudden demise of late
President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua had created in the country.

He, however, reiterated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
candidate in the February 14 presidential election, President Goodluck
Jonathan, will win the election convincingly.

The Governor stated this in Ado Ekiti on Saturday while playing host
to a team of American diplomats in his office led by the United States
Consul-General in Lagos, Mr. Jeffrey Hawkins.

Fayose said the state witnessed a peaceful poll last year during the
governorship election, expressing confidence that the standard this
time around would not be lower.

Explaining to the diplomats about the advertorial, Fayose said it
was not a death wish advert but to appeal to sense of reasoning to
prevent the episode of 2010 when the National Assembly had to invoke
Doctrine of Necessity for President Jonathan, the then Vice-President,
to take over in acting capacity, when Yar’Adua had been incapacitated by
sickness.
