Buhari in London Hospital, not listed on Chatham House' speakers list as claimed
Contrary to claims by the Muhammadu Buhari's campaign organization, the All Progressive Congress (APC) standard bearer's name is not listed by the Chatham House as speaker any time soon.
Spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu said Buhari is expected to hold meetings with key members of the British political establishment and interact with some global institutions with stakeholder interest in the affairs of Nigeria.
“He would give a talk at the prestigious foreign policy hub, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House London,” the statement said
Checks by Pointblanknews.com reveal that event listed on Royal Institute of International Affairs website; http:// www.chathamhouse.org/events to hold on February 23 and 24 is; 'Security and Defence: Rising powers and the future of defence cooperation' and Buhari's name is not listed among the speakers.
The event's keynote speakers are; former Brazil Minister of Defence, Celsius Amorin; UK Parliamentary Under
Secretary of State and Minister of Defence Equipment Support and Technology, Celsius Amorin; Chief of the Defence Staff, UK Ministry of Defence, General Sir Nicholas Houghton; Chief Executive of BAE System, Ian King and Secretary General, Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, Dr Abdulatif Bin Rashid Al Zayani.
It was also learnt that Buhari is being treated at a hospital located at Cavendish Street, Cavendish Square, W2 London West End, London.”
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, described the medical trip as a vindication of his earlier stand that Buhari was sick and lacked the required capacity to rule Nigeria.
He said; “as against the claim of the APC that Bihari was on a short working visit to the UK, Buhari is being treated at a hospital located at Cavendish Street, Cavendish Square, W2 London West End, London.”
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor described claim by the APC that Buhari will give a talk at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, London as “deceit taken too far.”
He said; ” This is not to mock Buhari or wish him dead. Rather, it is to expose the falsehood of the APC and desperation of its leaders, especially Senator Bola Tinubu to foist another Yar'Adua saga on Nigeria.”
“If the APC people are saying otherwise, let them publish the picture of Buhari boarding the plane and granting interview to Aviation Correspondents at the Abuja Airport.
“While I am happy that the APC people that are packaging Buhari finally hearkened to my plea that they should allow him (Buhari) to seek medicare abroad, I must say that it is unpatriotic for the APC to have lied that Buhari traveled on a working visit.”
“The party should be honest enough to tell Nigerians that Buhari is actually sick and lack capacity to rule Nigeria and that they are only packaging him, hoping that he will become incapacitated if he becomes president so that they can take over power by proxy.” Fayose said
