Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, Thursday said that the “secret trip” made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to the United Kingdom has shown that his party leaders were covering up his true health status for their selfish gains.
Fayose alleged that the UK trip was a decoy as Buhari’s final destination is United States of America (USA), where he would undergo medical treatment.
A statement from Fayose’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said: “The truth is that Buhari traveled out today to seek medicare in USA.”
“If the APC people are saying otherwise, let them publish the picture of Buhari boarding the plane and granting interview to Aviation Correspondents at the Abuja Airport.
“While I am happy that the APC people that are packaging Buhari finally hearkened to my plea that they should allow him (Buhari) to seek medicare abroad, I must say that it was evil for the APC to have lied that Buhari travelled on a working visit.
“These APC political merchants should say the truth and save Nigeria from the possibility of another Yar’Adua experience.”
Fayose advised APC to come clean on Buhari’s health and tell Nigerians “that Buhari is actually sick and lacks capacity to rule Nigeria.”
The Governor alleged that some APC leader were hoping that Buhari will become incapacitated if he becomes president “so that they can take over power by proxy”.
Fayose concluded by restating his call on the North to wait till 2019 “to produce a younger, energetic and healthy president of Nigeria”.
