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