An Abuja based human rights activist and constitutional lawyer, Osuagwu Ugochukwu, has dismissed the claim of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state that President Muhammadu Buhari is on life support in West End Hospital in London, describing the claim as unfounded and false.
He condemned the action, adding that it is pure conjecture and a bid to hear up the polity and cause friction.
Governor Fayose had claimed that the Eid-el-Fitr audio message of President Buhari does not represent the truth as the President does not only have voice impairment but is also on life support since June 6, 2017 at a West End, London Hospital.
The activist maintains that Fayose has no facts about the president, adding that the Ekiti state governor had in February 2015 alleged that Buhari was admitted in a London hospital and not billed to attend any Chatham House Lecture.
“This alone shows that Fayose must have been misled by the so-called insiders feeding him with information about our President in London. Governor Fayose should rather stop all these puerile attempts at ridiculing the president simply because he went for medical vacation,” he stated.
Osuagwu stated that, rather than giving the 48 hours for the presidency to debunk his tales, it is rather the other way round for Governor Fayose to provide evidence of what he is alleging as what he has claimed to be West End Hospital does not exist.
