Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state says President Muhammadu Buhari has become a ”bad business” to those he allegedly called ”cabals” that purportedly ”imposed him (Buhari) on Nigerians”.
The ailing President has been in an undisclosed hospital in London for over 60 days for a follow-up medical treatment.
According to Fayose, the Presidency is in a state of confusion as to whether to bring the President back to the country or leave him in London.
In a statement issued on Monday by the Governor’s media aide, Lere Olayinka, Fayose stressed that Nigerians deserve to know the true state of their President’s health.
I told Nigerians then that President Buhari was a black-market packaged by the APC cabal that was only interested in seizing power by whatever means and now I have been vindicated.
For a President who has spent 113 days abroad taking care of his health out of the 191 days in 2017, it is time for Section 144 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to be invoked.
President Buhari left Nigeria for London on May 7, 2017 and today is July 10, 2017, 64 clears days since Nigerians saw their President or heard anything from him. Even the President’s handlers are keeping Nigerians in the dark.
Even though the number of days that a president can spend outside the country is not specified in the 1999 Constitution (as amended), the makers of the laws of Nigeria envisaged this kind of situation and made provisions for how to resolve it in Section 144.
It has therefore become pertinent that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) must invoke Section 144 of the 1999 Constitution by passing a resolution declaring that President Buhari is incapable of discharging the functions of his office.
The governor, however, insisted that he does not wish President Buhari dead, saying Nigeria should be let loose from those who are presently holding it to ransom.
