Nigerian pro-democracy group has again
demanded that Senate President Bukola
Saraki, in conjunction with Acting President
Yemi Osinbajo, direct the setting up of a
medical panel to ascertain whether President
Muhammadu Buhari is incapacitated, under the
provisions of Section 144 sub-section 4 of the
Nigerian Constitution. It also asked the
President to address the nation by live video
by Thursday or face the prospects of
organized protests in Nigeria and other parts
of the world.

It also asked the President to address the
nation by live video by Thursday or face the
prospects of organized protests in Nigeria
and other parts of the world.
In a statement signed by convener Deji
Adeyanju and Secretary John Danfulani, the
group warned: “If the President is found with
any infirmity that renders him incapable of
discharging his duties, the Senate President
and the Speaker of the House of
Representatives shall officially declare him
incapable of discharging his duties and declare
his office vacant as prescribed in subsection 2
of section 143.”

Pointing out that July 4th marks 58 days of
Mr. Buhari’s absence from his office as
President, and from the country on a medical
vacation in the United Kingdom, the group
observed that he has had almost no contact
with Nigeria during the period, and made no
public appearances.

“To this end, we urge President Buhari to
address the nation via a live video on or
before the 60th day (2 days from today) of his
absence,” it urged.
It further demanded that AIT, Channels,
Vanguard and Punch correspondents, along
with representatives of SaharaReporters and
Premium Times be present at the live event.

“In failing to do so, we will begin a series of
peaceful processions and mass action across
the country such as [in] Abuja, Lagos, Port
Harcourt and Kaduna and also outside the
country in London and New York aimed at
sensitizing the public as to the legal &
constitutional crisis created by President
Buhari’s continued absence from office and
the insistence of the cabal to shield him away
from his constituents, the Nigerian people.”

“Concerned Nigerians” is a pro-democracy
group committed to accountability, rule of
law, good governance and the fight against
corruption.
