Update on President Buhari's Health

An ugly Rumor has reared up its ugly head about President Muhammadu Buhari being on life support in a hospital in the United Kingdom.

This rumor has not been helped by the Nigerian First Lady’s hurried departure to the United Kingdom recently. Apparently, Mrs. Aisha Buhari has gone off to be with her sick husband but why the suddenness and hurry?

The origin of this rumor about the president’s health is none other than Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State who recently made his stand known to the world all the way from the Ekiti State House.
The Governor of the poor southwest state is insisting that Nigerians are not being told the truth about the condition of their President who is actually is on life support in a hospital in London.

Governor Fayose, the only Governor to stand up to the Nigerian President and his somewhat partial security agencies, hopes the First Lady, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, would have the courage, to tell the truth when she gets back from London.

It is now nearly three months Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has been holed up in London for what the Presidency, whoever that is, has termed ‘follow-up medical trip’.

According to the word of Governor Fayose, Nigeria’s President Buhari went on life support on the 6th of June and has since seen a drastic deterioration in health.

For nearly one week now, the Ekiti State Billionaire Governor has been promoting his stance on the President being on life-support before the media and the hurried departure of the first lady to London only gave more substance to his allegation.

With the First Lady’s sudden and very hurried departure to London yesterday, a Special Assistant to the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Olayinka,  forgot to put on his stocking in his hurry to call a press conference in Lagos State the same Monday evening to spread the word according to his boss.

The guy raised some pretty shrewd points though and Nigerians can very easily relate to all of them.
Firstly, he began by rubbishing the fact that Governor Fayos wished the President Buhari dead and then brought up the warring issue of the cabal hiding behind the curtain of ‘the presidency’ who hold the country to ransom in the president’s name as they have been doing for over six months while the president fades away in an unknown London Hospital.

Nigerians on social media ask - Where is our president? For how long will the country lie ungoverned while the president stays hidden? Who is the presidency that is ruling the country and making a public declaration?

It would be recalled that during the Presidential elections of 2015, Governor Fayose was booed by many for warning against the election of Buhari on the grounds of his age, mental and health status.
Well, the same Governor is out again with a nice piece of advice….

President Buhari is actually the second Nigeria president to fall seriously ill while in power. The first was President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua in 2010 and ironically, the one voice calling on the Nigerian Senate to impeach Yar’Adua was none other than President Buhari.

At that time President Yar’Adua’s health status was being kept a secret just like Buhari’s is now.
Nigeria’s current Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, was then the mouthpiece of President Buhari’s political party, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), went on record as saying that Nigerians have a right to daily briefings on Yar’Adua’s health status as it was a national interest and not a family interest.

Mr. Lai is surprisingly silent now just as he is silent on all the cheap food he has been promising the government will ‘soon flood the market with to alleviate hunger and starvation in Nigeria.
According to ex-aviation Minister, Mr. Femi-Femi Kayode, ‘the Lie’ is a pathological liar so let’s move on.

Mr. Fayose is now asking that Nigerian Senate to get rid of President Buhari just as Buhari asked them to get rid of Yar’Adua in 2010 on the same grounds of uncertain health.

Fayose believes that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who is the nation’s acting president is doing a good job but a bedridden president Buhari is a shackle on him.

Meanwhile, the 'presidency' is saying that President Buhari has personally written a letter of condolence to Kano state Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje over the death of elderly statesman, Alhaji Maitama Sule. 

Apparently, the dead Alhaji is more important than Nigerians ... but to the Presidency. 

Nigerians what do you think?
