Presidency reveals why Fayose wasn't allowed to visit President Buhari (photos)




President Buhari's spokesman Femi Adesina has revealed why Governor Fayose was not part of the delegation assigned to visit President Buhari in London today.

Adesina said the selection was handled by members of the Governor's forum so the presidency had no hand in it. He said:

The selection was by the governors forum and you will see that the delegation is headed by governor Yari who is chairman of that forum. So that question should go to the forum.” 
On why the president does not prefer the broadcast option while addressing Nigerians, Adesina  said,

“It is a question of what he prefers and this is what he prefers for now. He would rather receive that delegation and that is what is happening. If the president opts for address option he will do it.” He further explained the reason for the visit against the backdrop that it had been reported that President Buhari was recuperating, he said it was the best time for the president to receive visitors as he was recovering. He said: “Instead of being curious, it should be the right time for the visit. When somebody has recovered or something has happened, it’s in our culture to visit such a person. So, this is the right time to visit the president because the news is that he is recovering and recovering well.” 
 He was unable to confirm the date of two weeks time for the return of the president as announced by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state.
