The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose has accused the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari of secretly leaving the country to receive medical attention.

Buhari travelled out of the country on Thursday, February 19, for a ‘brief working visit.’

Fayose however alleged, in a statement released by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, that the APC is hiding Buhari’s true health status.

Fayose had earlier insinuated, through a newspaper advert, that Buhari might die in office he wins the elections.

The statement reads:

“The truth is that Buhari travelled out today to seek medicare in USA. 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 hearkened to my plea that they should allow him (Buhari) to seek medicare abroad, I must say that it was evil for the APC to have lied that Buhari travelled on a working visit.”

“These APC political merchants should say the truth and save Nigeria from the possibility of another Yar'Adua experience. They should 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.”

“Like I have maintained, the north should wait till 2019 to produce a younger, energetic and healthy president of Nigeria.”
