As President Muhammadu Buhari returned from his 50 day medical trip abroad, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, said his return has vindicated its claim that the President was not terminally ill as being portrayed in some quarters.
The party which expressed delight over the President’s return, commended Nigerians who offered prayers and good will in the quick recovery of the President.
In a press statement in Ado-Ekiti on Friday by Publicity Secretary,Taiwo Olatunbosun, the party also apologised to Nigerians on the role played by Governor Ayodele Fayose in making himself the “prophet of death” while the President was abroad tending to his health.
“We have been vindicated in our claim that Fayose was a mere attention-seeker in his relentless death wishes and several social media news items he promoted suggesting that President Buhari was terminally ill on death-bed.
“With the President’s safe return after failure of Fayose’s evil wish primarily propelled by his serial crimes against the law of the nation, the governor has been put to shame with Buhari’s arrival hale and hearty on Friday.
“We also commend the Presidency and the President for not dignifying Fayose with a response when he cynically requested Buhari to call him to prove that he was alive,” Olatunbosun said.
