Buhari is Incapacitated, He Should Resign – Gov. Fayose

Buhari is Incapacitated, He Should Resign – Gov. Fayose

Ekiti state Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has lamented that President Muhammadu Buhari has spent more days abroad for medical treatment than he has stayed in the country.

Ayodele Fayose made this statement in Lagos, Monday, while addressing journalists, asking the President to resign so that the country will not experience what happened during President Umaru Yar’Adua’s time.

“Today is the 184th day of 2017. Out of these 184 days, our President has spent 107 days abroad taking care of his health,”Fayose said.

“How does a nation move forward when its President is spending the better part of his time abroad for Medicare?

“For how long can Nigeria and its people wait for a President who is incapacitated? For how long can our people continue to suffer just because some people want to hold on to power at all cost?

“That was the reason I raised the issue of President Buhari’s age, health and mental capacity in 2015 and warned against electing President him.”

According to him, “Nigerians should be reminded that in 2010 when there was uncertainty over the health of the then President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, President Buhari called on the National Assembly to impeach Yar’Adua.

“The Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed who was the Spokesperson of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) also said Nigerians should be briefed daily on Yar’Adua’s health status.

Lai Mohammed said then that ‘the health of the President, as a public figure cannot be of interest only to his family and friends. Nigerians have a right to know.’

“Just the same way President Buhari asked the National Assembly to remove Yar’Adua in 2010; I am also insisting that the President must be made to bow out of office so that Nigeria and its people can be saved from this state of uncertainty.

“No doubt, it has been argued that since Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is already functioning as Acting President, President Buhari can be bedridden for as long as his illness last, but the reality that Nigerians must accept is that the Acting President cannot fully exercise the powers of the President.

“However, pending his resignation, I am also aligning myself with what Lai Mohammed said in 2010 on Yar’Adua’s health by demanding that he (Lai Mohammed) should begin a daily briefing of Nigerians based on authentic details provided by the President’s doctors.

“Nigeria belongs to all of and its collective interest remains greater than those of any individual or group and together, we must save Nigeria.”
