Fayose questions Buhari’s persistent absence from State Functions



Governor Ayo Fayose

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose in a press release issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka in Ado Ekiti questioned President Muhammadu Buhari’s persistent absence from state functions, especially the weekly Federal Executive Council meetings. According to him, he said it is becoming obvious that a group of cabal is exercising the powers of the President.

He said,

Every day, what we hear is president said this, president said that without seeing the president in any official function and one is prompted to ask; where is the president?” I saw the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Babachir Lawal, on television responding to his suspension and what came to my mind was that there could actually be many presidents operating in the Buhari’s presidency.

Perhaps, it is for this reason of possible existence of governments within the government of Buhari that confusion pervades the polity, with the president himself writing letter to the Senate to clear someone of wrongdoing and the same person being suspended three months after on the basis of the same allegation.

It is also for this reason that the President nominated Ibrahim Magu to the Senate for confirmation as EFCC Chairman and the DSS – an agency under the Presidency – wrote the Senate not to confirm him.”

    In the interest of the country, Buhari should step down. He clearly is not medically fit to rule Nigeria. I believe in Osibanjo he has a vision,he is well educated, eloquent and is a listening leader. Buhari the change you so preach about can be delivered by Osibanjo, Do the right thing and step aside.

    Lol. Nigerians sha, they forget things so quickly. Can’t you remember that President was supposed to return to uk for phase 2 of his treatment?
    Rumour has it that they brought London to him instead. Apparently the fear of osinbajo efficiency was the beginning of wisdom for our northern brothers and sisters. They should sha remember that Abacha and Yaradua took the same obstinate route refusing to step aside when death came calling.
    Bubu, we know you have Nigeria at heart. Do the right thing, hand over to osinbajo.

    I was expecting him to address us at Easter.
    Of course, there’s a reason for all these distractions in Nigeria !!!
    EFCC, acting so efficient, yet not so transparent!!
