Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, yesterday declared that the interview the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari had with a local television station, “All Eyes on African TV” in London, United Kingdom, was not true.
The governor said the picture taken from the interview was snapped at Transcorp Hilton in Abuja and not in London as claimed by the opposition party.
The APC Presidential Campaign Organisation had last Saturday circulated a picture Buhari purportedly had during the interview with Kemi Fadojutimi of the local television station.
But speaking at a press briefing yesterday, Fayose who picked holes in the narrative of the opposition party, insisted that Buhari went to London for medical treatment.
The governor who re-enacted before newsmen the scene where the interview was purportedly held, accused Buhari and APC of cutting corners and APC of propaganda.
He said “General Buhari was in Transcorp telling Nigerians he was in London. He should stop deceiving Nigerians”.
Fayose, while trying to backup his claim, sat on the three-seat sofa which he said was similar to the sofa in the suite as well as the painting on the wall of the room.
He noted that the table lamp and the cupboard also matched those of the picture leading to Fayose conclusion that the said interview with Kemi Fadojutimi in London was not true but part of the APC propaganda that would lead to her failure in elections.
He said the level of falsehood upon which the candidature of General Muhammadu Buhari was being projected to Nigerians exposes the deceitful nature of the opposition and qualifies the APC candidate for failure at the polls come March 28.
