Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose said that he warned Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari was a “black market package” and has become a “bad business for the cabal that imposed him” on the country. He made this claim in a statement by his media assistant, Lere Olayinka on Monday, adding that the presidency is confused about whether to bring Buhari back to the country or to leave him in London. He further added that APC only wanted to seize power and the only way to do that was to bring in a Black Market Package.
The Governor said, ‘For a president who has spent 113 days abroad taking care of his health out of the 191 days in 2017, it is time for section 144 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to be invoked’.
‘President Buhari left Nigeria for London on May 7, 2017, and today is July 10, 2017, 64 clears days since Nigerians saw their president or heard anything from him. Even the president’s handlers are keeping Nigerians in the dark’.
Even though the number of days that a president can spend outside the country is not specified in the 1999 constitution (as amended), the makers of the laws of Nigeria envisaged this kind of situation and made provisions for how to resolve it in section 144.
It has, therefore, become pertinent that the federal executive council (FEC) must invoke section 144 of the 1999 constitution by passing a resolution declaring that President Buhari is incapable of discharging the functions of his office
Fayose also added that he is not wishing Buhari dead, but that he wants Nigeria freed ‘from the hands of those who are presently holding the country to ransom’.
