Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday prayed for President Muhammadu Buhari’s quick recovery and safe return to Nigeria.
Fayose, who briefed reporters at Government House, Ado Ekiti while receiving the General Overseer of Champions Glory Assembly Church, Pastor Joshua Lasisi, said: “I want to equally join Nigerians to pray for the President and ask God to give him good health.”
He urged Buhari’s aides to provide timely and accurate information to Nigerians about Buhari’s health to stop the further spread of rumors.
“But the best thing we should all realize 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 for 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 Mr. President.
“At the same time Nigerians too, should be praying for the President. Nobody has control over health challengesonly thing they are doing wrongly is hiding the facts from Nigerians. I cannot say I cannot be sick when I’m 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 am doing it is the right of every Nigerians. But I want to urge all of us to stick together and pray for Mr. President.
For his part, the cleric condemned the killings and persecution of Christians in some parts of Nigeria as well as attempts to muzzle men of God.
