Ado Ekiti- Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to tell Nigerians the truth about his widely reported vacation.
Fayose, in a statement on Sunday, said the press release issued by the Presidency on president Buhari's sudden vacation was vague.
He said Nigerians deserved to know the truth about their leader because the president was an open book that every Nigerians should be free to read.

He, however, commended the Buhari for handing over to his deputy, as stipulated by the Constitution of the country.
Fayose’s statement read: We were told last Tuesday, that Mr President was travelling to France and from there to London to attend the Syria Donor Conference, and that he would return to Nigeria this weekend.
“All of a sudden, we were told that the President was embarking on a five-day vacation. Where and why? We were not told.
“Curiously, it was at this same period, last year that President Buhari, who was at that time the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, disappeared from public, with lies told about him granting interviews in London.
“It is therefore important that in future, the presidency should be more explicit in communicating with Nigerians on issues regarding the President because a nation’s president is an open book that can be read by anyone.”
