Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti, has said the Office of Nigerian President is for a “sick man”, referencing President Muhammadu Buhari’s recovery from his ailment.
“The office of the president is not for a sick man. The president is tired and should be allowed to resign and go and rest”, Fayose told some leaders of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in his office in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of the state.
Fayose said he stood by his previous criticism that the president had gone into a coma while being treated in London.
“I have said it severally and without apologies. Everything I said when the President was away, I stand by them. The president actually went into coma and this was attested to by what one of the governors who visited him when he was abroad said that his recovery was a miracle. When somebody’s recovery is a miracle it simply means something very serious happened to the person”, Fayose added.
He further put the cancellation of the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting down to the president’s brittle health.
“Let Buhari go back to Daura and rest. Don’t send him to early grave”, the controversial governor added.
He added: “Since the President himself cannot disclose his health status and also the extent of his ailment, it apparently shows that there is so much to hide … you look physically look at the President he is physically.”
