Following Governor Ayodele Fayose’s new-found obsession with the health of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), a group in Ekiti State on Sunday described the governor as a “political stalker”, whose actions should be viewed as a threat to the life of Mr. Buhari.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Mr. Segun Dipe, the Action Group, operating within the APC in Ekiti, asked Fayose to tender an unreserved apology for having the general on his death-wish list.
Dipe said, “Everyone should put Fayose on notice how his words and deeds have been threatening the life of General Buhari.
“The indecorous governor is bent on seeing the APC presidential candidate dead before the March 28 presidential election because his party is sure of losing the election, and he feels he will stew for it.
“That a Fayose could be hounding Buhari with death threat is quite unwarranted and unfortunate. He has sent spies after our presidential candidate and may soon start toying with the idea of snipers, that is, if he has not already.
“That Fayose is fraudulent, corrupt, inept, indecorous and uncouth is not in doubt. That he is unambiguous in his wish for Buhari’s death is not in doubt either. What is worrisome to us is why the twice-lucky governor should be trailing the General even beyond the shores of Nigeria, to ensure that his wish against him comes to pass”.
Dipe hinted that his group was aware that Gov. Fayose, in his alleged desperation to see Buhari dead, had travelled to UK just about the same time that the APC flag bearer travelled and had been trailing his movement abroad.
He said, “He wants to hold on to power by all means possible and he knows that an integrity-driven person like Buhari as president would clip his wings.
“Our group is calling on all well-meaning persons in Nigeria and across the globe to call Fayose to order as his actions and words amount to not only wishing Buhari dead but driving the General to his death. God forbid.
“The group also calls on all sons and daughters of Ekiti who are desirous of rejecting the toga of indecorous and gluttony, which Fayose has brought on them, to come out enmasse and vote General Buhari in as president come March 28, as well as the candidates presented by APC for all the other political positions at the polls.
“A vote for APC is a vote against Fayose’s indecorous ways and PDP’s clueless impunity”.
