Ekiti State's Governor Ayodele Fayose has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to show himself in public and rule the country physically and not through proxies. According to him, there's more than meets the eye about the president's absence. In a statement released on Thursday by his spokesman Lere Olayinka, he said it is "necessary that Nigerians hear the voice of their President and see him physically, not through surrogates or the cabal operating behind the scene." “Most importantly, the President did not attend the FEC meeting last week and the meeting did not hold this week under the flimsy excuse that Easter Break stalled it. How could Easter Break that ended on Monday be responsible for the inability to hold FEC meeting on Wednesday? Definitely, there is more to this than meets the eye. He also urged the president to hold media chat regularly to assure Nigerians. “Since his first and only media chat was held in December 2015, Nigerians have not had opportunity of seeing their President address them directly and this is not the best approach to governance in a democracy,” he said.
