A human rights group in Nigeria, the Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ) has called on ailing Nigeria President, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to grant the request of the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, by speaking with him rather than leaders of other countries as being claimed by his media aides. By so doing, Fayose said, the health status of the President would be confirmed.
The Rights group also urged the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Presidency to stop deceiving Nigerians over the present health situation of Mr. President. The group stated that the call became imperative because Nigerians have been skeptical about various set of orchestrated media hype on President Buhari’s calls to some APC chieftains and world leaders, saying that it was high time for Buhari to speak with the opposition leaders in the country to affirm the “President is hale and hearty” message since the beginning of his medical vacation in London.
It will be recalled that Governor Fayose, who doubles as Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum, at the weekend, encouraged President Buhari to speak with him from his London sick bed to convince Nigerians that he is hale and hearty instead of looking for outsiders to convince Nigerians.
Fayose had declared that, “Let President Buhari speak with me. If I tell Nigerians that President spoke with me, they will believe. I can be reached on 08035024994. I am credible and Nigerians will believe me.”
CHRSJ’s Executive Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman, in support of Fayose, stated that the news surrounding Buhari’s medical vacation has been suspicious by Nigerians because the Presidency failed to reveal the true picture of Buhari’s state of health.
Comrade Sulaiman who disclosed that the group and its affiliates would soon set up a Five-Men Committee to visit President Buhari in London in order to ascertain the true state of his health.
