While addressing journalists in Abuja, AYIF national president, Comrade Abubakar Ibrahim said;
“We pointed out this visit because of its significance to what had transpired earlier when Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose came up with his tales by moonlight in which he vigorously tried to mislead the public with claims that Mrs Buhari was a fugitive from justice in the US over the Halliburton scandal. Various persons that set the records straight that the wife of the President was not the same ‘Aisha Buhari’ mentioned in the court documents were ridiculed and bad mouthed.
“May we remind Fayose that Mrs Buhari was not the one who was recorded in a hotel suite conspiring with others to breach the Electoral Law. The first family did not tell him to engage in money laundry involving billions of naira ferried from one airport to another. It was not Mr President that made the lodgement of proceeds of crime into the Ekiti state governor’s bank account. It was not northerners that made Fayose to be richer than Ekiti state neither were we responsible for his inability to sell his family to pay salaries to workers’ whose money he has diverted into his personal account.
Ibrahim said now that Mrs Buhari’s visit to the United States has confirmed that Fayose was not telling the truth, “we are calling on him to apologize to the first family, and Nigerian women.”
