The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Organisation on Saturday have requested that President Goodluck Jonathan call the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, to order for allegedly trailing the APC presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently in the United Kingdom for a work-related visit (click here if you missed it), Punch reports.
The statement was released on Saturday and signed by Mr. Garba Shehu, with the APC saying that Fayose who wishes Buhari dead has also been hiring people to trail Buhari. He said:
“Let it be on record that knowing Governor Fayose’s antecedents, we are not leaving anything to chances. The governor who has published death-wish advertorials on Buhari will stop at nothing.
“If anything should happen to General Muhammadu Buhari while in London or anywhere, the authorities over there in the UK and at home should know who to hold responsible.”
Fayose’s news media, Lere Olayinka, commented on the allegations saying: “The APC should come to equity with clean hands and accept the burden of presenting an old and analogue Buhari as its candidate and stop blaming Fayose for exposing to Nigerians what they are covering concerning Buhari’s health status.”
Shehu further confirmed that Buhari will honour his speaking engagement at the Royal Institute Of International Affairs, Chatham House in London scheduled for Thursday, February 26.
