National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Chief Odigie Oyegun on Thursday night refrained from commenting on the claim by the Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose that ailing president, Muhammadu Buhari was on life support in a London Hospital.
The Ekiti state governor had declared in a press statement that ‘’President does not only have voice impairment, he has been on life-support since June 6, 2017 at a West-End, London Hospital.’’
Asked by newsmen to comment on Governor Fayose claim, shortly after a meeting between his leadership and governors on his party platform, hosted by Imo state governor and Chairman of APC Governors’ Forum, Rochas Okorocha, Chief Oyegun accused Governor Fayose of lack of decorum.
He said:’’ “If I respond I will be dignifying him because the kind of politics he plays is not for decent people, the appropriate people, will answer him at the appropriate level and at the appropriate time.”
But prodded further by newsmen on the likely date of the return of the ailing President Buhari, Chief Oyegun said only Buhari’s physician could offer a definite date.
“It is for his doctors to decide but all we know that he is recovering fast.”
He however said the party leadership was optimistic that President Buhari would soon return to the country.
“We used the opportunity to restate our implicit confidence in President Muhammed Buhari. We are glad to inform you that he is recovering in a very robust manner. We hope he takes it easy when he comes back, we have no doubt at all that we will have an active period in the nation.’’
Giving an insight into the meeting held behind closed doors, the APC national chairman said the focus of the meeting was the growing resurgence of ethnic nationalism and the attendant incendiary statements, which he noted was a threat to national unity.
‘’ We discussed issues affecting the nation and the impact of the current agitations across the country. On each of these we decided to strengthen the party. We decided that the kind of verbiage and incendiary statements by different groups, are not good for the health of the nation and we decided that it had to stop.”
“For that reason, we have taken certain measures, which I will not disclose here to ensure that the basic and fundamental unity of this country is preserved while at the same time listen to whatever grievances anybody has to say.”
