- The Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO) urges Governor Fayose to leave behind the 2015 presidential election outcome and move forward in the interest of the nation
- The group says it is obvious that President Muhammadu Buhari is receiving treatment abroad
- The BYO advises Fayose to harness the inherent natural resources of his state and facilitate mechanised farming
The Buhari Youth Organisation, (BYO) Lagos state chapter, has urged Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state to stop negative comments about President Muhammadu Buhari’s health.
The state coordinator and the general secretary of the organisation, Mr Waheed Odunuga and Mr Adekunle Aderibigbe, respectively, made the appeal in a statement they jointly signed on Friday July 14, in Lagos, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
According to them, the governor should have left behind the 2015 Presidential election outcome and move forward in the interest of the nation.
“It is obvious that President Muhammadu Buhari is receiving treatment.
“The Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has further reassured Nigerians that President Buhari would soon be back. So, there is no need for Fayose to create a hospital album for himself.”
“The governor should desist from wasting time and resources to shop for pictures for the album of the ailing president that adds no value to his people,’’ he said.
The organisation urged Fayose to harness the inherent natural resources of his state and facilitate mechanised farming with well-irrigated lands to produce various cash crops.
According to them, that will attract investors from within, like Kebbi partnered Lagos State, to produce LAKE Rice.

The duo said that every state government should be concerned about the welfare and security of the people.
“Every state government should be saddled with the responsibilities of providing health care facilities, education, security of lives and properties and conducive environment for businesses to thrive.
“Most essentially, states need to generate revenue as the people; especially the poor, are looking up to them for dividends of democracy.’’
NAIJ.com recalls that Governor Fayose had threatened to make public 11 recent pictures of ailing President Buhari in reaction to statement credited to Osinbajo that the president is recuperating in the United Kingdom.
Fayose speaking with journalist in Abuja on Wednesday, July 12, asked Osinbajo to provide the evidence that President Buhari is really recuperating as he claimed.
The governor said until such evidence is provided, he remains convinced that the president is in a critical condition.
