‘Buhari’s ill­ness not a fac­tor in Ek­iti gov’ship’

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Doyin Ade­busuyi, Ado Ek­iti

Achief­tain of the APC in Ek­iti State, Michael Bamidele, has dis­missed Gov­er­nor Ay­o­dele Fayose’s com­ment that the ill­ness of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari will be a sub­ject of dis­course ahead of the 2018 gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in the state.

Bamidele said peo­ple in the state were hu­mane and God­fear­ing in­di­vid­u­als, who be­lieved that as a mor­tal, Pres­i­dent Buhari could fall sick.

He stated this yes­ter­day, in Ado Ek­iti, af­ter his in­vesti­ture as the Pa­tron of the Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal So­ci­ety of Nige­ria (PSN).

Bamidele said the ab­sence of Pres­i­dent Buhari did not in any way af­fect gover­nance in Nige­ria, say­ing no right think­ing per­son would use the health sta­tus of some­one for cam­paign pur­poses.

Fayose had re­cently said Ek­iti vot­ers would not vote for a party, “whose pres­i­dent ab­di­cated his seat and re­lo­cated to Lon­don for med­i­cal at­ten­tion.”
