The APC Presidential Campaign Organisation has asked Nigerians to ignore
the “utterly silly and reckless statement” credited to the over-exuberant
Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose to the effect that General
Muhammadu Buhari does not enjoy good health.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, the Campaign Organisation
dismissed as “unsolicited, reckless and silly” the allegation that former
President Obasanjo was planning an imposition of General Buhari on Nigeria
as he allegedly did the late President Yar’Adua while ignoring their
“GMB is fit as a fiddle,” said Garba Shehu, the Spokesman of the
“He has no known ailment and is in excellent condition to pilot the
affairs of the country.”
The statement added that Buhari is “almost a health freak,” who exercises
regularly and undergoes medical examinations at regular intervals.
“On each occasion, the outcomes of those medicals have been favourable.
The recent medicals he did gave him a clean bill of health,” Garba said.
Garba joked that “GMB is not given to curses otherwise he would have done
as the late President Nnamdi Azikiwe did when a similar mischief played
out over his health. Zik swore that whoever did this to him will expire
before him, and they all did.”
