Nigerians were on Thursday, thrown into a poll of confusion, as the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, called on Nigerians to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari, to get well soon.
Post-Nigeria, learnt that the call for prayers for Buhari’s recovery by Fayose, is contrary to the earlier report issued by the Presidency, that the President is hale and hearty.
Recall, that Nigerians have been apprehensive and demanding for accurate information about the truth on the health status of the President, who has been on medical vacation for some time now.
Speaking with some Reporters at the Government House, while hosting the General Overseer of Champions Glory Assembly Church, Pastor Joshua Lasisi, Fayose said: “I want to equally join Nigerians to pray for the President, and ask God to give him good health.”
He further advised the Presidency, to ensure it gives accurate information about the health status of the President, so as to forestall a situation whereby people would continue to spread nasty rumours currently milling round.
“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 challenges; the only 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 Nigerian. But I want to urge all of us to stick together and pray for Mr. President”, he said.
