The Governor made this disclosure at the weekend while commenting on some national issues.
In a statement released in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday, the Ekiti State Governor said his prayers are with President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that he “is only human and he can fall sick like every other person created by God”
He said “My prayers are with the President. Bi a ba nja bii ka ku ko (If we are fighting, it is not to the extent of wishing that the President dies. Most importantly, my disagreement with President Buhari is for the goods of Nigerians.
All of us should be praying for him. On the issue of visiting the President, I think they should allow him to rest. Those who are going to the UK to visit him are not helping the President.
You can see that I have not been criticising him now because he is sick. When he comes back, I will start again. The criticism is not because I hate him, it is what is needed for good governance. It is through those criticism that he can even perform better.
My only problem is his handlers who will say one thing today and say another thing tomorrow. The President is only human and he can fall sick like every other person created by God. So, I pray that the President gets well soon so that he can come back home and deliver his electoral promises.”
The governor of Ekiti state is seen as the major critic of the current federal administration.
