Former Minister of Education and presidential aspirant, Oby Ezekwesili has taken to social media to call for public disclosure of President Muhammadu Buhari’s physical and mental state to carry out his leadership duties.
This comes after the recent Boko Haram gruesome killings of rice farmers in the North, after which the minister of Information, Lai Mohammed confidently admitted that the country is at the mercy of terrorists.
Speaking about the issue, Mrs Ezekwesili pointed out that the insecurity crisis in Nigeria has become too grave for the citizens to sit idle and simply ignore the worsened state thus it is necessary to know the president’s fitness to rule.
Mrs Ezekwesili also went ahead to slam the minister of information for his unpleasant comments whiles demanding that a Medical Panel be set up to probe the president’s health.
The former minister aired out her heavy words in a series of tweets. In her own words,
“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.”
