Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose, has broken his silence over the recent visit by seven governors to President Muhammadu Buhari in London.
Fayose who is a staunch critic of Buhari, expressed doubts over a report given by the governors on the visit, saying they did not take him along because they knew he would certainly tell Nigerians the correct health status of the President.
Fayose, who was presenting a welcome address at an all-inclusive meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party with other political parties held at Ibadan Monday, insisted that a sick person who has little or no strength cannot govern Nigeria.
“If the President refused to take a bow and leave governance of the populous country, he should be made the Minister of Foreign Affairs in London where he is presently recuperating.
“Why did they not take me to London. Why didn’t they take me there? They obviously knew very well that i would listen to the man and know whether his voice is clear or not. Then, i would be able to tell Nigerians the truth.
“Leadership must come with a certain measure of strength. If you don’t have strength, how can you govern the country? So, we need a President that is hale and hearty. If our President doesn’t want to go, let him become the Minister of Foreign Affairs in London. These are statements of fact”.
The governors including those of PDP controlled states visited the President in London and came back with a report that he was recovering fast and would soon come back to the country.
