Abuja - The Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has blasted Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State over his recent verbal attacks on its presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.
The party said the Ekiti governor is mentally sick and needs the immediate attention of a psychiatric doctor.
In a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Joe Igbokwe, the APC boasted that Fayose could never prevent Buhari from being sworn in as the democratically-elected president of Nigeria on May 29 after the elections.
“Anybody who sees Ayo Fayose, the so-called governor of Ekiti State should please beg him to see a psychiatric doctor before it is too late,” APC said.
“From the look of things now I do not know if the man ever sleeps at all. From the look of things I can say authoritatively that he wakes up in the dead of the night to cry and curse the day General Buhari was born. I am sure he has fallen out with everybody; his siblings and members of his family included because of this Buhari factor.”

The party alleged Fayose controversially won the state’s governorship elections. There have been allegations these were rigged.
“After robbing former governor Fayemi of Ekiti State, Fayose has been on top of the world celebrating his so-called victory until the bubble burst,” the APC statement read.
The party added that ever since General Buhari emerged the candidate of APC and the events that have followed his emergence Ayo Fayose has been “a ghost of himself.”
“He fears Buhari more than anything under the sun. Even though Buhari is yet to win the Presidential elections slated for February 14 2015 and now shifted to March 28 2015, Ayo Fayose will not sleep. He fears even his shadow and even a knock at the door by his siblings, his aides and neighbours. For Ayo Fayose, the fear of Buhari is now the beginning of wisdom.”
APC accused Fayose, who could not be reached for comment, of trailing the APC Presidential candidate anywhere he goes.
“He has been monitoring the man’s movement anywhere he goes. Buhari traveled to London and Fayose followed him to London claiming that Buhari has gone for treatment.”
Fayose had recently raised question about the health of the APC Presidential election candidate.
