Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has challenged the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Major General Muhammadu Buhari to swear with the Holy Quran if he did not visit any hospital for medical attention during his visit to United Kingdom.
Fayose accused the APC leadership for not being fair enough to the nation by hiding the health status of the former military ruler.
In a statement signed in Ado Ekiti yesterday by his Special Assistant on Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka said Buhari will never be the president as he would dash the hope of his followers.
“Buhari will never be Nigeria president again because some APC stalwarts want to ride on his back by seizing power at all cost.
Fayose , however clarified that he was not wishing Buhari dead but just to save the country from unnecessary embarrassment
“I wish they can see spiritually what I am talking about that Buhari, despite the hullabaloo will never be president.
” I predicted my return as Ekiti State Governor and I am saying it again that Buhari will never rule Nigeria again.
”After President Goodluck Jonathan, there will be a young element in his late 50s from the North that will be Nigeria’s president. I want to liken this revelation to the story of Elijah and Elisha. I am the Elijah while my followers are Elisha.”
“I owe it a duty to Nigeria and its people to expose the antics of the APC cabal whose only interest is to seize power to further their selfish interests.
”Without doubt, it is obvious that these cabal in the APC are trying so hard to deceive Nigerians on Buhari’s health status. That’s the reason they have been using ‘Photoshopped’ pictures to defend their lies on Buhari’s UK trip.
”First, they used a March 5, 2013 picture, claiming that Buhari was taking a walk in London on Thursday. Later they came up with another poorly cropped picture of Buhari with former British Prime Minister,Tony Blair.
”The same people who lied in September 2012 that they received a gold card invitation to attend the Democratic National Convention in the United States of America are behind the robing of Buhari in the garment of lies and I challenge Buhari to swear by the Holy Quran that he did not visit any hospital in the United Kingdom last week.
”However, I want to disappoint this selfish cabal. Buhari is only raising their hope and that hope will be dashed.”
