The All Progressive Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation on Saturday called on President Goodluck Jonathan to call the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, to order for allegedly trailing the party’s candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, in the United Kingdom.

In a statement issued on Saturday and signed by Mr. Garba Shehu, the APC said apart from hiring people to trail Buhari, Fayose also wishes the presidential candidate dead.

He said, “Let it be on record that knowing Governor Fayose’s antecedents, we are not leaving anything to chances. The governor who has published death-wish advertorials on Buhari will stop at nothing.

“If anything should happen to General Muhammadu Buhari while in London or anywhere, the authorities over there in the UK and at home should know who to hold responsible,” Shehu stated.

Commenting on the allegation, Fayose’s aide on new media, Lere Olayinka, said, “The APC should come to equity with clean hands and accept the burden of presenting an old and analogue Buhari as its candidate and stop blaming Fayose for exposing to Nigerians what they are covering concerning Buhari’s health status.”

Shehu further confirmed that Buhari will honour his speaking engagement at the Royal Institute Of International Affairs, Chatham House in London scheduled for Thursday, February 26.

He added that Buhari also had an interview on Saturday with a local medium, the “All Eyes on Africa TV Show” with Kemi Fajodutimi and met with Tony Blair on Saturday, February 21 morning.
