Bamidele Cautions Fayose Against Attacking Buhari


A member of House of Representatives, Opeyemi Bamidele, has warned Governor Ayodele Fayose to stop embarrassing the state by his consistent attack against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.). The governor has consistently claimed that Buhari is too ill to be President of the country. Fayose also claimed that the recent trip of the former Head of State was to enable him get medical attention, contrary to the position of the APC that he was in United Kingdom on a working visit. But in a statement in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, Bamidele said Fayose by his constant abuse of elders like former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Buhari, was rude. According to him, the statements credited to the governor constituted a rude invasion of Buhari’s privacy and a roughneck tactic. He said:

“Even if, according to Governor Fayose, General Buhari had visited a hospital during his foreign trip, the reasonable question to ask, I would think, is whether or not General Buhari deserves rest or even a medical checkup after a full-fledged and most rigorous (over 30 days) campaign during which he did not miss a single rally?”
