Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has insisted that his earlier claim that President Muhammadu Buhari was on life support in London was true.
Recall that the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governors Forum, had recently stated that Buhari was on life support.
In a video which emerged online, Fayose said Buhari owes Nigerians the true state of his health.
Fayose said, “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 regrets 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.”
“I love him but the President should take a back seat, its time for him to decide if to tag on, a visiting President or a president in diaspora.”
“My position over time as made his handlers to bring the president to the fore, since he left we were hearing nothing. Everybody was prevented from knowing what is going on but my claims made them to do everything to ensure they showcase the president.
“I wish him well but I tell you expressly, health is wealth, without strength you can’t do much. If the President wants to be honorable, he should allow the country to move forward by stepping aside.”
