The All Progressives Congress(APC) in Ekiti State and the coalition of civil society groups, on Monday trooped to the streets of Ado Ekiti, to celebrate return of Pres. Buhari to Nigeria after 104 days in London for medical vacation.
The coalition blasted Gov. Fayose over the statement credited to him that President Buhari, who left the country on May 7 had been placed on life support since June 6, when his sickness relapsed in a London hospital. .
According to Daily Post, while addressing the rally, the APC Acting Chairman in the State, Mrs Kemi Olaleye, said God has shamed those wishing the President death.
Olaleye appealed to Fayose to make good his threat that he would commit suicide if President Buhari returns to Nigeria hale and hearty. .
She said “Mr Fayose has turned himself to propaganda-in-chief , but we are happy that God has shamed those who thought President Buhari won’t return alive. With this rally, the end has come to Governor Fayose’s reign in Ekiti.
The good people of this state are not in support of Fayose’s action , because we are cultured and compassionate people. Look at the Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike, he went to Abuja to welcome the president back to Nigeria. .
That was a show of maturity, why was our governor not learning from this? We are solidly behind Pres. Buhari even beyond 2019. And we are pleading with Nigerians to discountenance whatever Fayose has been saying against the president. He was not speaking for us, he only spoke for himself”, she said.
