Fayose Begs Buhari for Phone Call

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to speak with him from his London medical vacation to prove he is hale and hearty.

Mr Fayose, in a statement issued on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, said speaking with him (Fayose) would make Nigerians believe he is still okay as citizens are being made to believe by the media handlers.

According to the Governor, “I advised the President to speak with me for the purpose of convincing Nigerians that he is hale and hearty instead of looking for people outside the country to convince Nigerians.”

Mr Fayose said he picks holes in statements that Mr Buhari had spoken in one week, first with the king of Morocco and next with the president of the African Union.

“If their problem is that they are looking for a credible person who can help them convince Nigerians that all is well with our President, Ayo Fayose is their best bet.

“Let the President speak with me. If I tell Nigerians that the president spoke with me, Nigerians will believe,” he said.

Nigerians, he added, are getting suspicious of all the purported visits to Buhari in London as well as his orchestrated telephone conversations with international figures who Nigerians cannot trust to give a true and unbiased report about the president’s state of health.

“Since they are eager for the president to speak to people; believing in this way to convince Nigerians that their President is hale and hearty, let President Buhari talk to me. I can be reached on 08035024994. I am credible and Nigerians will believe me,” Mr Fayose said.

“They said he spoke to President Donald Trump; despite the hype, Nigerians were sceptical. Then they said he spoke to the king of Morocco; again, Nigerians were suspicious. Before we recovered from that, it is now the AU president that they said President Buhari spoke to.

“A president that can speak with outsiders should be able to whisper or wave to his own people. The people gave him the very important platform of President on which he stands today and, therefore, Presidential aides should stop giving the unhelpful impression that Buhari has no respect for the Nigerian electorate,” the Governor was quoted as saying in the statement.
