IBADAN, AUGUST 8, 2017 – Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has revealed why he has not been allowed to visit the ailing President Muhammadu Buhari in London, UK.
Buhari has been visited by several Governors and top politicians since he returned to London for further medical check-ups on May 7.
Fayose, who was presenting a welcome address at an all-inclusive meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with other political parties which held at Ibadan Civic Centre, Agodi Gate, Ibadan Monday, maintained that a sick person who has little or no strength cannot govern Nigeria.
Why I have been blocked from visiting Buhari in London – Fayose
The Governor also stated that if the President refused to step down, he should be made the “Minister of Foreign Affairs in London”.
He added: “Why did they not take me to London. Why didn’t they take me there? They obviously knew very well that I would listen to the man and know whether his voice is clear or not. Then, I would be able to tell Nigerians the truth.
“Leadership must come with a certain measure of strength. If you don’t have strength, how can you govern the country?
“So, we need a president that is hale and hearty. If our President doesn’t want to go, let him become the Minister of Foreign Affairs in London. These are statements of fact”.
