Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has declared that he wants to travel to London to see President Muhammadu Buhari himself and wish him a quick recovery.
Speaking in an interview with Punch, the governor said he does not doubt the judgement of his colleagues who recently visited the President.
Fayose said his concern is that the President should make his health status known to Nigerians.
According to him, “Nigerians wanted me to be there. But I believe in the judgment of my colleagues.
If Nigerians wanted me to be there but Buhari’s handlers didn’t give me the access, what can I do?
I have to move on and join them to wish the President well. What is important is Nigeria. When Senator John McCain was sick in the United States, he came out boldly to say he had a brain tumour.
The health of the President is a public issue. It is the handlers that are causing the confusion.
Like I said, I don’t want the President dead, but we want to know the true state of health of our president. For me, I ’ll love to go the UK to see him.
But if they say they are not giving me a passage, it is all well and good, as long as the President is hale and hearty. If he is not fit, let him resign.
