Fayose greets Buhari at 75
Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of his 75th birthday, urging the President to quit the stage when the ovation is loudest.
Fayose said the President had served the nation, as far as he could with his advanced age, remarking that if he sees Buhari on his birthday, he would congratulate him, not minding the political differences between them.
In a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary Idowu Adelusi, yesterday, the Ekiti governor said the President deserves the prayers of all Nigerians, adding: “This is to congratulate Mr. President as he clocks 75. I want to thank God for his life and pray for good health in the service of our nation and that he continues to age with grace. I wish him the best. He represents us all and we owe him prayers and cooperation where necessary, just as we also need to criticise him too where necessary.”
On his advice to the President against the background of his speculated second term bid, Fayose noted that it would be honourable for the President to call it quits now.
