Aisha Buhari, who is currently in the British capital with her husband, gave the indication on her Facebook page while responding to a post made by Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central.
Senator Sani’s post read: “Prayer for the absent Lion King has waned. Until he is back, they will fall over one another to be on the front row of the palace temple. Now the hyenas and the jackals are scheming and talking to one another in whispers, still doubting whether the Lion King will be back or not.
“It is the wish of the hyenas and the jackals that the Lion King never wakes up or come back so that they can be kings. It is the prayers of the weak animals that the Lion King comes back to save the kingdom from the hyenas, the wolves and other predators.”
In response, Buhari’s wife took a cue and wrote: “God has answered the prayers of the weaker animals. The hyenas and the jackals will soon be sent out of the kingdom. We strongly believe in the prayers and support of the weaker animals. Long live the weaker animals, long live Nigeria.”
In a subsequent Facebook post, Sani also made a veiled reference to Aisha Buhari, commending the “Lioness” for her courage, strength, tenacity and resilience.
Also, in a veiled reference to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, Senator Sani referred to a tiger that was acting for the lion, noting that the lion would always remain the lion and king of the kingdom.
Meanwhile, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the cabal within the Presidency are in a state of dilemma debating whether to bring President Buhari back to the country with his present state or leave him in London because “the President has become a bad business for the cabal that imposed him on Nigerians.”
Insisting that Nigerians must be told the truth about the President’s state of health, Governor Fayose said:
“I told Nigerians then that President Buhari was black-market packaged by the APC cabal that was only interested in seizing power by whatever means and now, I have been vindicated.
“For a President who has spent 113 days abroad taking care of his health out of the 191 days in 2017, it is time for Section 144 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to be invoked.President Buhari left Nigeria for London on May 7,
“President Buhari left Nigeria for London on May 7, 2016, and today is July 10, 2017, 64 clears days since Nigerians saw their President or heard anything from him. Even the President’s handlers are keeping Nigerians in the dark.
“Even though the number of days that a president can spend outside the country is not specified in the 1999 Constitution (as amended), the makers of the laws of Nigeria envisaged this kind of situation and made provisions for how to resolve it in Section 144.
“It has, therefore, become pertinent that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) must invoke Section 144 of the 1999 Constitution by passing a resolution declaring that President Buhari is incapable of discharging the functions of his office.”
Governor Fayose, who insisted that he was not interested in President Buhari’s death, said freeing Nigeria from the hands of those who are presently holding the country to ransom should be the major concern of all well-meaning Nigerians.

“They are always quick to tell Nigerians that there is an Acting President in person of Prof Yemi Osinbajo and as such, no vacuum government. However, we all know the limitations of the Acting President. We know that there are so many things Prof Osinbajo cannot do and Nigerians are the ones bearing the consequences of a bedridden President,” Fayose said.
