Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the reported
meeting of Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to President Muhammadu Buhari
in London as another attempt by the All Progressives Congress (APC)
government to deceive Nigerians on the state of health of the President.
governor said “what Nigerians desire now is a live video of President
Buhari addressing them, not a visit in which no pictorial (photo or
video) was made available to the public.”
He noted that;
“President Buhari has spent 65 days out of the country since he left on
May 7, 2017 and no one has seen him. Yet, Nigerians are being told that
the Acting President Osinbajo visited him with no picture, no video to
show except that of his (Osinbajo) entering and leaving the Abuja House
Special Assistant to the Governor on Public
Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said in a release issued on
yesterday, that Governor Fayose reiterated his challenge that President
Buhari’s handler should prove to Nigerians that he is not incapacitated
by producing him to the public.
“Today is July 12, making 115
days that President Buhari spent abroad taking care of his health out of
the 193 days in 2017, and what Nigerians are being told is that Acting
President Osinbajo met him secretly in London, this is ridiculous.
we be talking about President Buhari being met behind the camera by the
Acting President at this time or the President resigning so that the
country can move forward? “Isn’t it funny that those who told Nigerians
in 2010 that the health of the President, as a public figure cannot be
of interest only to his families and friends and that Nigerians have a
right to know the President’s state of health are the same people in
power now and are feeding Nigerians with tales of Buhari being met
behind camera by the Acting President?
“It is therefore my
position that Nigerians do not need this drama of Osinbajo’s behind the
camera meeting with Buhari. Rather, what we want is that the President
should speak to Nigerians publicly and disabuse the minds of the people
who are of the belief that he is already incapacitated and cannot
continue as President,” the governor said.
