Former Edo state governor Adams Oshiomhole has condemned the criticisms of Ekiti state governor Ayo Fayose when it comes to issue of President Muhammadu Buhari’s health.
Vanguard reports that Oshiomhole related Fayose’s actions to that of a mad man that should be ignored.
He said: “I don’t like to discuss Fayose because when he makes his statements, it only reminds me of an Igbo proverb which says that if a responsible man is having his bath after a hard day’s work and he removes his dress in a local bathroom and a mad man carries the dress and the man bathing, seeing that the mad man has carried the dress, he runs out naked pursuing him, people will see two naked people running and they will say two mad men.
“So, sometimes, you just allow the mad man to carry your dress and go rather than joining him in his madness.
“One of my very good friends wrote something in the papers criticizing the pictures taken during some APC governors visit to the President, he said maybe a broadcast would have been better. But I ask, if the head of a family is sick and some people went to see him, first there is nothing unusual about that.”
The immediate past Edo state governor also said that while President Buhari is sick, it was not an unusual sickness.
He said: “President is sick but it is not as bad as what people are saying. Some were carrying rumour that he was on life support but people have seen at least that; that is not true.”
Meanwhile, a report recently published in Ovation magazine by Dele Momodu also slammed Ayodele Fayose for ridiculing President Buhari because of the current condition of his health. According to Momodu, in his weekly column ” Pendulum”, Fayose’s attitude towards Buhari and his health status was terrible, Daily post reports.
FELLOW PRESS gathered that he said the President Buhari is presently enjoying better health than what has been the case in the recent past.
