Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has alleged that the latest picture showing some APC Governors, party Chairman, John Oyegun and President Muhammadu Buhari, purportedly taken in London, is “old and fake.
The former minister made in a post on his facebook page said the picture was was taken in Abuja some time back and not yesterday in London.
“I have been reliably informed that the picture was taken in Abuja some time back and not yesterday in London.
“Quite apart from that, even though the picture was meant to have been taken in London curiously all the drinks on the table are Nigerian products and Nigerian-made.
“Did the Governors take all those drinks along with them to London when they went to see the President?
“Why the need for the APC Governors to “visit” him in far away London if he will be back in Nigeria in a few days?
“What was the purpose and point of this fake photo-shoot and this strange breakfast meeting? What was the purpose and objective of this monumental fraud and deceit?
“Whatever the answers may be to these questions the curtain must be brought down on what can only be described as a puerile and nauseating conspiracy.
“This crazy and noxious charade just has to stop. We do not wish the President dead but we have a right to know the truth. As a matter of fact we demand to know that truth because, as he once said himself, he “belongs to us all”.
“For those who still believe that the meeting actually took place there are some nagging questions that need to be answered.
“For example why were the Nigerian and foreign media not allowed to cover the proceedings and participate in this celebrated photo-soot and merry London feast?
“Why did the Villa press corps not take one of their own camera men to London and make a short video of this “historic” event?
“Why was were the whole proceedings shrouded in so much secrecy? Why is it that only one picture was taken? Why were more pictures not shot? Why was Buhari not put on audio tape and interviewed whilst he was with his celebrated and important guests?
“Why did he not offer a few words of hope and encouragement to the Nigerian people to ease the tension that has been generated in the land by his prolonged absence?
“How can they expect us to take Governor Rochas Okorocha’s word for anything without any solid proof or evidence to back those words up or give them a measure of veracity or credibility?
“I for one would not believe a word that a man like Rochas tells me. If he told me that it was day outside I would have to assume that it was night. It is that bad.
“Again why did Buhari not shake anyone’s hands during the photo-shoot? Why did he not get up from his chair, say “cheese” and give us a big Daura smile?
“Why was he just sitting there like a stuffed mannequin who really did not know where he was and who he was interacting with?
“Is it not obvious that he can no longer function properly? Why all the tall tales that he is getting much better?
“Is it not clear that he is simply being stuffed with and pumped up by a dangerous cocktail of steriods? Is it not obvious that he is suffering from an extreme form of dementia?
“Is it not clear that even if he were to be brought back to Nigeria tomorrow he could no longer function properly and lead the nation?
“Is it not obvious that he is barely lucid and that he is little better than a zombie?
“Where is the shame in admitting these truths and prevailing on him to resign in order for him to be able to go home to Daura and take care of his health?
President Muhammadu Buhari reportedly met with the governors and leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in London.
The Special Adviser to the President, Mr Femi Adesina, in a statement said the chairman of the APC Governors’ forum Rochas Okorocha, who was one of the delegation said the President was very cheerful and has not lost any bit of his sense of humour.
