Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has demanded for a public disclosure of President Muhammadu Buhari’s physical and mental capability to carry on his duties.
According to the former presidential aspirant, the insecurity in Nigeria has worsen and the citizens can’t just ignore the grave state of the nation, hence the need to know the president’s fitness to rule.
This is following the recent terrorist attacks in the North, after which the minister of Information, Lai Mohammed said the country is at the mercy of terrorists.
Mrs Ezekwesili condemned the minister for his statement and demanded for a Medical Panel to be set up to probe the president’s health.
In a series of tweets via Twitter, she wrote,
“I think that at this stage and depth of fragility of the Nigeria-State, Privacy has to yield ground to our Right-to-know as citizens, the state of health of @MBuhari.
We really must assess the physical or mental capability of @NGRPresident to carry on the duties of office.
Citizens can collectively push for an Independent Panel to help us make the critical medical determination of the state of mind and body of our President, @MBuhari.
The conditions of Nigeria have become too grave for us all to sit still and watch a train wreck in the making.
As an extremely concerned citizen, I hereby demand for a #MedicalPanelOnBuhari since we obviously cannot trust the State House Physician to provide us accurate information. It is reasonable demand now for citizens to have full disclosure on the state of health [email protected]”
She further added,
“Imagine…people who sought for and received legitimacy from citizens to solve problems on their collective behalf sounding defeated.
Imagine the chief spokesperson of government telling citizens that the country is “at the mercy of terrorists”. We need a #MedicalPanelOnBuhari.”
