Former Minister of Aviation and ardent critic of the current administration, Femi Fani-Kayode, has challenged the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo-led Federal Government to prove that President Muhammadu Buhari is in ‘high spirits and recuperating very quickly’.
This was as he said that Nigerians deserved to know the true state of their president and urged the Federal Government to put ailing President Buhari in front of a camera so that he could talk to Nigerians.
Fani-Kayode stated this in a tweet on his twitter handle posted on Thursday, adding that the Federal Government should stop the cover up and show“us our President.”
He said, “Nigerians have a RIGHT to know the truth. Stop the cover-up and show us our President! Put him in front of a camera and let him talk!”
The former minister was reacting to the statements by Osinbajo on Wednesday upon return from his trip to visit the president in which he claimed that they had a substantive discussion for over an hour and that he was in “high spirits” and “recuperating very quickly.” Like Fani-Kayode, Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose had questioned Osinbajo’s sincerity and gone ahead to threaten to make public 11 photos showing the true state of health of Buhari if the Federal Government continued what he saw as a deceit.
Fayose had earlier claimed that Buhari whose nature of ailment is unknown to Nigerians, had been on life support since June 6.
