Barely two weeks after the Presidency began the show of displaying pictures of the recuperating President Muhammadu Buhari in London with some other visiting Governors, Governor Ayodele Fayose has broken his silence on the assertion that the President is well enough to continue leading Nigeria.
The Ekiti state Governor, who in times past has been rigorously resonating in speech that President Buhari was not fit to lead the country and that he was on a life support, threatening to expose pictures of the sick President, went into silence after pictures of the President in ‘High spirit’ broke the internet.
In a recent interview he granted, Fayose has again insisted that the President was definitely on a life support as at the time he mentioned but got a miracle afterwards to escape it.
“What I said about the president is very clear. I said that the President at a point before these recent visits was incapacitated and has been on a life support. I stand by it. I stand by it. I have no regret for that statement. You would recall that I said the Handlers of the President should produce evidence to the contrary within 48 hours. After 4 weeks, they said they went to visit the president. Thank God the President is getting better now but there is no denying that what I said at the time was the truth.
”If you go by the statement of the governor of Ebonyi, he said the President’s recovery is a miracle, it is divine which means something had gone the other way round before becoming a miracle. I read in another piece that the President came up like Lazarus from the dead. Well, that is another person saying that. I stand by what I have said. Not in the wish that the President must die. Don’t forget, that the President owes it to us all to declare his state of health. The president’s life should be an open book that should be read by everybody”, he said
