In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has now become a part-time and ceremonial President who is only seen during the Friday Jumat service at the Presidential Villa.
Fayose said it is necessary for Nigerians to be properly informed about the wellbeing of their President.
Fayose said Buhari is not immune to illness, adding that the President should seek proper medical attention and allow the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to constitutionally act as the President.
“But it is doubtful if those cabals that are obviously running their own Presidency within Buhari’s Presidency will allow him to take a long vacation, probably outside Nigeria to take care of himself.
That’s why Nigerians are told every day that the President said this and that with the President neither speaking directly nor attending any official function. This is not good for the image of a country like Nigeria that is struggling to get out of economic recession.
It is only when the President is seen and heard physically that Nigerians will believe that they are not being ruled by a part-time and ceremonial President, whose powers are being exercised on his behalf by some cabal,” Fayose added.
