Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose seems happy to have President Buhari back and alive.

At least that is what his statement portrayed on Friday when asked how he felt about the President’s return from the UK where he had been on a medical leave.

He said, “What is important is that for the President to stay away for that long, anybody would feel concerned about it. So, we pray that may God give him the strength to do his job.

“He has a job to do, so we will continue to pray for him to be well to fix the economy and put food on our table. We cannot task a sick man on these challenges, we will continue to pray for him to be well and bring the Dollar back to N200 or less.

“We don’t have power over life and we have to continue to thank God that the President is alive strong and back. Anybody can be sick whether you are young or old. What is important is that God should give him the strength to be alive and do what we expect him to do for our country.

“I just leant that he said he would be going back in a few weeks’ time we have to keep our fingers crossed.

“There is no doubt that age is not on his side like every other person and there are many health challenges that come with ageing. What is best is that we continue to pray for him because the Holy books say we should pray for our leaders in authority.”

He spoke in Ado-Ekiti while signing a condolence registrar in honour of Military Governor of the defunct Western Region, General Adeyinka Adebayo.
