Buhari receiving treatment in UK, Fayose alleges

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Friday alleged that the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), who travelled to the United Kingdom for a supposed working visit, is in a London hospital.
According to him, Buhari is being treated at a hospital located at Cavendish Street, Cavendish Square, W2 London West End, London.
The governor said this had vindicated his earlier stand that Buhari was sick and lacked the required capacity to rule Nigeria.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor described the claim by the APC that Buhari would give a talk at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, London as a “deceit taken too far.”
He said, “The event is listed on Royal Institute of International Affairs website;www.chathamhouse.org/events.
“For the avoidance of doubt; the event’s keynote speakers are former Brazil Minister of Defence, Celsius Amorin; UK Parliamentary Under Secretary of State and Minister of Defence Equipment Support and Technology, Celsius Amorin; Chief of the Defence Staff, UK Ministry of Defence, General Sir Nicholas Houghton; Chief Executive of BAE System, Ian King and Secretary General, Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, Dr. Abdulatif Bin Rashid Al Zayani.
“Apart from the above listed five persons, 25 others are listed as speakers.
“So, in which Royal Institute of International Affairs’ event is Buhari participating as a speaker?
“This is not to mock Buhari or wish him dead. Rather, it is to expose the falsehood of the APC and desperation of its leaders, especially Senator Bola Tinubu to foist another Yar’Adua saga on Nigeria.”
The governor challenged the APC to prove him wrong.
“If the APC people are saying otherwise, let them publish the picture of Buhari boarding the plane and granting interview to aviation correspondents at the Abuja Airport.
“While I am happy that the APC people that are packaging Buhari finally listened to my plea to allow him (Buhari) to seek medical treatment abroad, I must say that it is unpatriotic for the APC to have lied that Buhari travelled on a working visit.
“The party should be honest enough to tell Nigerians that Buhari is actually sick and lack capacity to rule Nigeria and that they are only packaging him, hoping that he will become incapacitated if he becomes president so that they can take over power by proxy.”
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said his party was not ready to join issues with unserious people, adding that those who are doubting General Buhari’s working visit could not be taken seriously and that they should prove it.
“We are not ready to join issues with unserious people, but if they say General Buhari travelled for medical treatment, they should show us the photograph of Buhari on hospital bed,” Mohammed said.
