BEVERLY HILLS, June 28, (THEWILL) – Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State on Wednesday claimed that facts at his disposal have it that President Muhammadu Buhari has been on a Life-Support since June 6 at a West-End Hospital in London, stressing that the President is no longer capable of presiding over the country in his current health status, hence should resign.
Addressing journalists at the Government office in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, he dismissed the Eid-el-Fitr address to Nigerians by Buhari as false, alleging that the President has speech impairment, and could not have spoken Hausa to Nigerians on Sallah day as claimed by the Presidency.
In Fayose’s words, “Like every other Nigerians, I do not wish the president dead, I have therefore maintained dignified silence since we were told that the President embarked on his second medical trip abroad this year.
“However, the recorded audio message which was released by the Presidency as the President’s Ramadan message to Nigerians necessitated my setting the records straight today.”
The governor explained that he was revealing his findings in good faith as official information has been denied Nigerians on the President’s health and that neither the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo nor the President’s wife, Aisha could claim to have either seen or spoken with Buhari since his second medical trip to London.
He went on to declare thus: “That the audio message does not represent the truth as our President does not only have voice impairment, he has been on life support since June 6, 2017 at a West-End, London Hospital.
“Of a fact, our First Lady, Her Excellency, Mrs. Aisah Buhari was not allowed to see her husband during her last visit to the United Kingdom if only she will be courageous enough to admit. “Only three Nigerians who are of the President’s cabal are allowed access to the Preside. I will keep their identities for now.”
While challenging the Presidency or any other person with contrary claim on Buhari to make such known in 48 hours, he reminded Nigerians of his earlier remark that under Buhari, “Nigeria is drifting like the last days of the Yar’Adua’s government. Nigerians will recall that I warned against electing President Buhari on the account of his age, health and mental capacity.”
He said further, “Nigerians will also recall that when they released pictures to the press claiming that President Buhari had an interview with Kemi Fadojutimi of “All Eyes on Africa” TV Show in London, on Monday, February 23, 2015, I proved to the whole world that the interview was conducted in suite 881 at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.”
Alleging that some people in power have been after his life and government, the governor said he remained undaunted by such attempts expressing optimism that such plot would fail.
“Hate me or like me, again I am putting Nigerians on notice on the present state of health of our president. In closing, let me state that I am not unaware of the various attempts on my life; I am undaunted as I remain committed to truth and fearlessness because a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions,” he said.
While calling on the federal government to always tell Nigerians the truth, Fayose said: “Dear Nigerians, even though President Buhari needs our prayers and we should keep praying that God takes total control of his situation, it is equally imperative that our leaders must tell us the truth at all times. It is time that the President takes the interests of Nigerians above his own and resign from office so that our country can move forward. The fate of Nigeria and its people must not remain in the hands of the Presidency cabal, our country must be set free.”
Asked how he got his information, he speculated that, “some top APC leaders and members in government have given us some of the information they are afraid to tell Nigerians. We have also gone steps ahead to confirm these information before revealing to all Nigerians”.
