Gov. Fayose Says First Lady’s Impromptu UK Trip Indicates President is Dying

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari is suffering from voice impairment and has been on life support in a West-End London Hospital since June 6, a major reason for Aisha Buhari’s trip to London yesterday.

He also dismissed a purported audio message of the president greeting people in Hausa language for the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitri  as ‘absolute lies’.

According to Punch, Fayose issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the Presidency to disprove his claims and threatened to reveal further details on the hospital if there is no official statement from the government. He said:

“Today, it makes 53 days since our President left Nigeria to attend to his health challenges abroad. We have no official information as to his whereabouts and his state of health. Like every other Nigerians, I do not wish the President dead, I have therefore maintained dignified silence since we were told that the President embarked on his second medical trip abroad this year.

However, the recorded audio message which was released by the Presidency as the President’s Ramadan message to Nigerians necessitated my setting the records straight today. The audio message does not represent the truth as our President does not only have voice impairment, he has been on life support since June 6, 2017 at a West-End, London Hospital.”

Fayose also claims that the First Lady, Aisha, was not allowed to see her husband during her last visit to the United Kingdom.

He said:

“Only three Nigerians who are of the President’s cabal are allowed access to the President. I will keep their identities for now. Anyone with contrary claim should produce the President to Nigerians within the next 48 hours. I want to say emphatically that the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has not spoken to the President in the last one month. I expect him to prove me wrong.”

Fayose said it was obvious that Nigeria was drifting like the last days of the former President Umaru Yar’Adua’s government and urged Buhari to resign if he truly loved Nigeria.

“Hate me or like me, again I am putting Nigerians on notice on the present state of health of our President,” he said.
