Ekiti State governor and chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has wished President Muhammadu Buhari sound health.
This was as he urged Nigerians to pray to God for him to get well soon so that he could return on time and resume work.
Speaking with newsmen at the Government House, on Thursday, while hosting the General Overseer of Champions Glory Assembly Church, Pastor Joshua Lasisi, Fayose, said: “I want to equally join Nigerians to pray for the president and ask God to give him good health.”
The governor advised the Presidency to ensure it gave accurate information about the heatlh status of the president so as to forestall a situation whereby people would continue to spread rumours about the president.
“The best thing we should all realise is that the Presidency owes Nigerians accurate information about the situation of things, otherwise people would continue to spread one rumour or the other.”
“Nigerians demanding truthful and accurate information about the president’s health from the Presidency are right because the moment you assume such a position, your life has become public. So, we should let Nigerians have the accurate information about the whereabouts of the president. At the same time Nigerians too, should be praying for the president.”
“Nobody has control over health challenges, the only thing they are doing wrongly is hiding the facts from Nigerians. I cannot say I am not sick when I am sick because I am a public figure. I represent the interests of many people. They must know where I am, what is wrong and what I am doing; it is the right of every Nigerian. But I want to urge all of us to stick together and pray for him.”
Pastor Lasisi, who hinted that there would be a revolution which would turn the present unwholesome tide of things in the country, also said: “We strongly condemn the trial of men of God over religious issues. Men of God should be treated with respect and should not be persecuted for merely airing their views over issues that concern Nigeria. There is freedom of speech and people should be allowed to air their views.”
