Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose has been exposed, again, in his mission of spilling lies and expressing death wish for APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari. The garrulous politician, had claimed in a statement on Friday, that Buhari was ferried out of the country in an air ambulance and admitted in a West End hospital in London. Several picture of Buhari taking a walk on the street of London, later surfaced, thus putting a lie to the controversial governor’s claim.
Barely 24 hours after, more pictures of Buhari in series of official engagements in London emerged. In one of the pictures, Buhari is seen with former UK Prime Minister, Mr Tony Blair, Ogun state governor Ibikunle Amosun and former governor of Kwara state, Senator Bukola Saraki, after Buhari’s meeting with the former UK prime minister in continuation of his working visit to the UK.
Another picture also shows the APC presidential candidate addressing Nigerian professionals in the Diaspora in London, a gathering coordinated by the proprietor of London based satellite television station, BEN-TV, Mr Alister Soyode.
This has further confirmed Mr Fayose as a recidivist. Sources disclosed that Mr Fayose’s desperation in wishing Buhari dead or stopping him from winning the rescheduled March 28th presidential election “stems from the fact that President Goodluck Jonathan gave him about $150 million to fund his contentious governorship election in Ekiti in June 2014. Sources disclosed that the president also gave him all the federal might of security agencies to rig the election for him and so the governor feels it is pay back time for him to support Jonathan, with reckless abandon.”
Another source close to Fayose revealed that “the governor’s desperation is not only to pay Jonathan back, but also to fight for his own survival because of the corruption charges hanging on his neck. Fayose was standing trial for stealing of over N1 billion from a poultry project when he was governor of Ekiti state during his first term. He is gripped with the mrbid fear that should Buhari become the next president, his corruption case that has enjoyed “protection” from the Jonathan administration, will get a speedy trial; and this will spell a jail term for him. So, this whole thing is about a drowning man’s battle for survival.”
