The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, is under fire from the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association for reportedly making insulting speeches against President Muhammadu Buhari.
The herdsmen issued statement on Monday, warning Fayose to apologise to the President or he would be dragged to court.
Fayose has made several negative statements against Buhari’s health while he was away in the United kingdom on medical vacation, including reportedly saying that Buhari would never return to country and if he does, he (Fayose) would commit suicide, waging his life for Buhari’s return.
Speaking in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, the association’s National Coordinator, Alhaji Garus Gololo said rather than execute his constitutional duty of providing good governance which he was elected for, Fayose chose to attack Buhari while on a hospital bed.
According to Gololo, “We MACBA have met at our level here and resolved that the Ekiti State governor should publicly apologise to Nigeria’s President who he had mocked and made several comments he is not morally and professionally supposed to.
“We know that while other Nigerians were praying for PMB quick recovery, Fayose was praying for Mr. President to die. He even went ahead asking people to begin to address him as the next president of Nigeria while Buhari is still alive, but thank God, Buhari did not die.
“So, our president is back to the country to continue with the governance of Nigeria. It is now our turn to demand Fayose to apologize or we will go after him legally.”
