Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said that the statement

issued by the Presidency on President Mohammadu Buhari's sudden

vacation was vague, saying; “Nigerians deserve to know the truth about

their President because the President is an open book that every

Nigerians should be free to read.”
The governor, who said he was aware of the high-wire plot to use the

Supreme Court to upturn his electoral victory, insisted that nothing

will stop him from speaking the truth concerning issues in the

country.
He said it was suspicious that a president, who told Nigerians that he

was embarking on official visit to France and Britain, last Tuesday,

would suddenly commence a five-day vacation while still in the United

Kingdom.
According to a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public

Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor, who prayed

for safe return of the President, said “Nigerians deserve to know

where exactly their president is spending his vacation.”

He however commended the President for handing over to the Vice

President as stipulated by the Constitution of the country.

He said; “We were told last Tuesday, that Mr President was travelling

to France and from there to London to attend the Syria Donor

Conference, and that he would return to Nigeria this weekend.

“All of a sudden, we were told that the President was embarking on a

five-day vacation. Where and why? We were not told.

“Curiously, it was at this same period, last year that President

Buhari, who was at that time the All Progressives Congress (APC)

presidential candidate, disappeared from public, with lies told about

him granting interviews in London.
“It is therefore important that in future, the presidency should be

more explicit in communicating with Nigerians on issues regarding the

President because a nation's president is an open book that can be

read by anyone.”
