BUHARI’S HEALTH: Fayose suggests that govs who visited may have lied



Once again Buhari has confirmed he is number one promoter of disunity –Fayose

The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has suggested that the Nigeria Governors’ Forum may have deliberately excluded him from the delegation that went to visit President Muhammadu Buhari in London because of their plan to prevent him from direct, careful observation and truthful recount afterwards.

Fayose, who made these comments while delivering the welcome address at an all-inclusive meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party with other political parties which held at Ibadan Civic Centre, Agodi Gate, Ibadan, Monday, stated that a sick person with little strength was in no position to govern Nigeria.

He said, “Why did they not take me to London. Why didn’t they take me there? They obviously knew very well that I would listen to the man and know whether his voice is clear or not. Then, I would be able to tell Nigerians the truth.

‘‘Leadership must come with a certain measure of strength. If you don’t have strength, how can you govern the country? So, we need a president that is hale and hearty. If our President doesn’t want to go, let him become the Minister of Foreign Affairs in London. These are statements of fact”.

Fayose has been a consistent critic of President Buhari and his government, leading the call for the president’s resignation or disclosure of his true health state since his medical vacation saga began.

He had earlier claimed and subsequently defended the claim that Buhari was on life support in London.

Recall that some weeks ago, some governors, including those of PDP-controlled states, visited the President in London and came back with a report that he had recovered tremendously, sharing pictures of a lively and chatty president.

When the list of the selected governors to visit the president was made public, many were not surprised that Fayose was excluded, given his strong and controversial positions on the issue of the president’s health.

    Fayose is just as sick as Buhari, he should be in the psychiatric hospital for proper mental care. Why would anyone want to take Fayose to visit ailing Buhari in London? Fayose has never said anything positive about Buhari since he became the president of Nigeria, taking him there will cause more harm than good

    If Fayose was taken to London, truly, the truth would have been revealed and Nigeria would have known the true state of health of President Buhari because Fayose will never aid APC in hiding details of Buhari’s health. For the APC not to have included in among the governors who visited Buhari, that means they are still hiding so many things from Nigerians.

    Fayose has always been right about the APC government, and they will not even be in good tongues’. APC is full of manipulations and they went with governors who can be easily manipulated. All of their lies will soon be revealed and those governors who went to London to snap photos, just to deceive Nigerians, time will tell.

    Fayose remains the only sensible yoruba leader who is outspoken and will never remain intimidated. This is why he is associating with us the Biafra
