A member of Ekiti state House of Assembly, who recently defected to the APC, Hon. Gboyega Aribisogan, has advised Governor Ayodele Fayose to address the hardship faced by the people of his state and stop making “disparaging comments” on the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Nation reports that Aribisogan, who represents Ikole Constituency 1 in the assembly dominated by PDP, said the governor had made himself a laughing stock out of the 36 governors of the federation by his action urging him to desist from making inflammatory statements out of political brinkmanship.
NAIJ.com gathered Aribisogan was suspended by fellow lawmakers for 180 legislative days in October last year but stormed the Assembly three weeks ago to resume office, defected from the APC to the PDP last week with about 200 followers.
The lawmaker while reacting to Fayose’s comments that the ailing President Buhari is on life support machine in a London hospital, said in a statement on Saturday that “irresponsible utterances and actions” have eroded the governor’s credibility in the eyes of responsible Nigerians who have been praying for the President’s recovery.
He described Fayose as “a disaster in governance” whose personal attacks on the President has not portrayed him as a true Yoruba son who cherishes the tradition and respect for age and position.
“I will like to describe his (Fayose’s) outburst as ranting of a governor who has failed to address the numerous challenges facing his people. Ekiti people are suffering, workers have not been paid for several months, and people are hungry.
“Those who have laboured in their active years are now being punished by not being paid their pension and children are being sent home because parents can no longer pay their school fees, many are dying daily because the governor has no plan for the health of his people.
“The governor, rather than pay attention to these challenges , has made the abuse of President Buhari a major policy of his administration. Nigerians are already aware of the health status of President Buhari and there is no vacuum in the Presidency to warrant the unnecessary outburst of the governor who has been deceiving Nigerians that all is well with Ekiti people.”

Aribisogan added: “Out of the 36 governors in Nigeria, Mr. Fayose is the only one who has been abusing President Buhari without restraint and he has continued to portray Ekiti people as the enemy of the Federal Government through his action and utterances.
Meanwhile NAIJ.com had previously reported that Fayose alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari has been on life-support since June 6, at a West-End, London Hospital.
