The former Governor of Edo State Adams Oshiomhole while speaking on the health of the President described the frequent comment of the Ekiti State Governor Fayose as that of a mad man. According to Oshiomhole, “The president is quite sick but not as perceived by people or rumoured hence he is not on life support as rumoured by some of the politicians from the opposition party.
Speaking on Fayose’s comment that the media picture posted online that shows the president and some of the state governors are fake Oshiomhole said;
“I don’t like to discuss Fayose because when he makes his statements, it only reminds me of an Igbo proverb which says that if a responsible man is having his bath after a hard day’s work and he removes his dress in a local bathroom and a mad man carries the dress and the man bathing, seeing that the mad man has carried the dress, he runs out naked pursuing him, people will see two naked people running and they will say two mad men. So, sometimes, you just allow the mad man to carry your dress and go rather than joining him in his madness.
“One of my very good friends wrote something in the papers criticizing the pictures taken during some APC governors visit to the President, he said maybe a broadcast would have been better. But I ask, if the head of a family is sick and some people went to see him, first there is nothing unusual about that.”
We wish the president a quick recovery.
