Group Calls for Investigation into President Buhari’s Health Status

The Punch reports that the body, a coalition of all indigenous youth groups and student groups in the South-west of Nigeria, said the committee to investigate the fitness level of the president should be made up of medical experts headed by Buhari’s own head doctor in libe with section 144 of the constitution.

The group said this at a press conference in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital on Friday, March 10 during the formal swearing in of the Oyo State Council Executive members.

Its national president Oladotun Hassan, said: “There are a lot of uncertainties surrounding the state of health of President Buhari and many Nigerians, particularly the over 70 per cent of the Yoruba people, who voted him into office, are even being denied information about the President’s state of health.
“As much as we wish him speedy recovery and good health to continue the good work he has started in the country, we want to say that the President must ensure he takes as much rest as he needs if he finds himself still unhealthy enough for the rigours of the office.
“The health of the President is more important to the nation. As such, we call on the National Assembly to set up a committee or panel to investigate the fitness and health status of the President, so that Nigerians will know the level of support to offer him.”
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Nigeria on Friday, March 10 after spending 49 days on vacation in the United Kingdom.
Further reports say the President might have to return to the UK in some weeks time to get even more treatment.
