Publicity secretaries of APC in five Southwest states have asked Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, to seek science and spiritual interventions following his repeated outburst against the Buhari-led government. In a statement jointly signed by APC spokesmen of Ondo, Ekiti, Ogun, Lagos and Osun states, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, Taiwo Olatunbosun; Sola Lawal; Joe Igbokwe and Morakinyo Akintola, they said his actions in recent times depicts a man ‘suffering from psychosis.”
The secretaries described as embarrassing Fayose’s recent letter to the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, asking for the cancellation of a $2 billion loan to Nigeria. The statement reads in part
“We have observed that Fayose’s public conducts suggest that he has a disease of the mind and mental crisis that need a great assay of science and spiritual intervention to save him before he becomes dangerous to the society. His recent public attitudes call for state of emergency about his mental health. His thoughts and emotions have been so impaired that he has completely lost decorum and conduct expected of a man that can safely live in peace with other people in a sane society where the law works. The last was his embarrassing and illegal communication with the Chinese authority urging President XI Jinping to refuse financial assistance to Nigeria to enable the country address her economic challenges. Also in China, he mounted a rostrum at a train station addressing travellers in tattered clothings and posted his photograph on the Internet, claiming that he was addressing investors in China even when there was no Federal Government’s approval that he ought to seek before a state can embark on such diplomatic trip,”.
