The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has revealed that
president Muhammadu Buhari is on life support adding that it was why
Aisha hurried to London again.
Aisha has been visiting the president twice in less than three weeks
all the while he is on medical vacation.
Fayose further said that the way Aisha hurried out of the country this
time, has confirmed he was right when he said that the president is on
“It is six days since I addressed the press and today, I still insist
that the president is indeed on life-support,”Fayose said in a
statement released by his aide, Lere Olayinka.
According to Naij.com, Fayose said:
“The worsened condition of the president’s health necessitated the
hurried trip of our First Lady, Her Excellency Aisha Buhari to London
and it is hoped that she will have the courage to tell Nigerians the
truth this time around.
“No one is interested in President Buhari’s death. Rather, we are
interested in freeing Nigeria from the hands of these few individuals
who are presently holding the country to ransom.”
He further urged the president to resign.
“Today is the 184th day of 2017. Out of these 184 days, our president
has spent 107 days abroad taking care of his health.

spokesperson of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) also said
Nigerians should be briefed daily on Yar’Adua’s health status.
“Lai Mohammed said then that ‘the health of the president, as a public
figure, cannot be of interest only to his family and friends.
Nigerians have a right to know’.
“Just the same way President Buhari asked the National Assembly to
remove Yar’Adua in 2010; I am also insisting that the president must
be made to bow out of office so that Nigeria and its people can be
saved from this state of uncertainty
“No doubt, it has been argued that since Vice President Yemi Osinbajo
is already functioning as acting president, President Buhari can be
bedridden for as long as his illness last, but the reality that
Nigerians must accept is that the acting president cannot fully
exercise the powers of the president.

(Lai Mohammed) should begin a daily briefing of Nigerians based on
authentic details provided by the president’s doctors.
“Nigeria belongs to all of and its collective interest remains greater
than those of any individual or group and together, we must save
Nigeria.” he said
