I’m happy Buhari has returned, Fayose says

Leading critic of the Nigerian president and chairman of the opposition governors’ forum, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti Monday said he was happy that President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to the country.

Fayose, a People’s Democratic Party governor, however, said the president needed to start working immediately on repositioning the country.

“We are happy that President Buhari is back, it is a welcome development,” Fayose said in a statement. “But Nigerians are hungry, they need food, they need development.

“We in PDP know what is right for Nigerians, democracy is strengthened by opposition; APC should face governance squarely and give Nigerians democratic dividends.”

Fayose was one of the most vocal critics of Buhari’s months-long medical vacation in London. In June, he alleged that the president’s health had deteriorated so much that he was placed on life support. Although, he said his assertion was based “available and verifiable facts” he got from London and within the All Progressives Congress (APC), however, did not provide a proof.

“Our president does not only have voice impairment, he has been on life support since June 6, 2017, at a West-End, London Hospital,” Fayose said at a press conference in Ado Ekiti on June 28.
