Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described the picture of a visit by a delegation of APC leadership and governors published in the media on Sunday as fake.
This according to him, is based on the reason that drinks on the table comprised Nigerian products.
“The picture of a handful of APC Governors and President Muhammadu Buhari, which was purportedly taken in London on Sunday, is old and fake. I have been reliably informed that they were taken during Ramadan in Abuja some time back and not Sunday in London.
“Quite apart from that, though the picture was meant to have been taken in London, curiously, all the drinks on the table are Nigerian products and Nigerian-made. Did the Governors take all those drinks along with them to London when they went to see the President?
“We do not wish the President dead, but we have a right to know the truth. As a matter of fact, we demand to know the truth because, as he once said himself, he “belongs to us all.
“For those who still believe that the meeting actually took place, there are some nagging questions that need to be answered. For example, why were the Nigerian and foreign media not allowed to cover the proceedings and participate in this celebrated photo-shoot and merry London feast?
“Why did the Villa press corps not take one of their own camera men to London and make a short video of this “historic” event?
"Why were the whole proceedings shrouded in so much secrecy? Why is it that only one picture was taken? Why were more pictures not shot?
"Why was Buhari not put on audio tape and interviewed while he was with his celebrated and important guests? Why did he not offer a few words of hope and encouragement to the Nigerian people to ease the tension that has been generated in the land by his prolonged absence?”
Fani-Kayode also questions Okorocha’s capacity to convey the truth.
“How can they expect us to take Governor Rochas Okorocha’s word for anything without any solid proof or evidence to back those words up or give them a measure of veracity or credibility?
“I for one would not believe a word that a man like Rochas tells me. If he told me that it was day outside i would have to assume that it was night. It is that bad.
“Again why did Buhari not shake anyone’s hands during the photo-shoot? Why did he not get up from his chair, say “cheese” and give us a big Daura smile?
"Why was he just sitting there? Why all the tell tales that he is getting much better?” Fani-Kayode asked amidst many other questions.
