Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has expressed concern at the continued absence of President Muhammadu Buhari from public functions.

Fayose made the call via a statement released on Thursday, April 20.

“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?” Fayose said.

“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,” he added.

Fayose had earlier described the suspension of Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal and Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke as an attempt to cover up the real owners of the $50 million found by the EFCC at an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos.
