Top government officials and the president’s aides claim he is hale and hearty and has been calling them from the United Kingdom where he is on medical vacation.
Fayose said he would only believe the president is alive after he receives the call from him.
In a statement by his chief press secretary, Idowu Adelusi, Governor Fayose noted that Buhari had spoken with the king of Morocco and the president of the African Union within the same week.
“If their problem is that they are looking for a credible person who can help them convince Nigerians that all is well with our President, I’m their best bet. Let the president speak with me. If I tell Nigerians that the president spoke with me, Nigerians will believe.
“Since they are eager for the president to speak to people; believing in this way to convince Nigerians that their President is hale and hearty, let president Buhari talk to me. I can be reached on 08035024994. I am credible and Nigerians will believe me,” he said according to The Punch.
The governor said Nigerians were becoming suspicious of all the visits to Buhari in London by his party chieftains.
“They said he spoke to President Donald Trump; despite the hype, Nigerians were skeptical. Then they said he spoke to the king of Morocco; again, Nigerians were suspicious.
