Fayose Congratulates Buhari at 75

Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of his 75th birthday.
However, he urged the President to quit the stage when the ovation is loudest and not to contest 2019 presidential election.
In a statement on Saturday by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, the Fayose said the President required the prayers of all Nigerians.
Fayose said that the President had served the nation as far as he could with his advance age.
“This is to congratulate Mr President as he clocks 75. I want to thank God for his life and pray for good health in the service of our nation and that he continues to age with grace. I wish him the best. He represents us all and we owe him prayers and cooperation where necessary, just as we also need to criticise him too where necessary,” he said.
Asked what he would tell the President if he sees him on his birthday, Fayose said he would congratulate him, not minding the political differences between them.
“I am not a fan of an old man and this is not personal and peculiar to President Buhari. We need an agile president come 2019.
“We need somebody that is experienced and agile. He shouldn’t contest and the decision is his and his party. But that is not going to stop me and my party from taking over from him and his party come 2019,” he added.
