Former statesman and Federal Information Commissioner of the First Republic, Edwin Clark, on Tuesday criticized the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retired), for visiting London, UK, to take care of him. health services without ceding power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
“Buhari should tell Nigerians what disease he has,” he said.
According to him, Buhari should follow the Constitution and do what is necessary according to world best practices as he cannot run Nigeria from abroad.
Clark, who said this during a press conference in Abuja, said that as president he should inform the Nigerian people about any illness he is suffering from.
He said the Supreme Court should be approached to seek interpretation of what Buhari had been doing without telling Nigerians the details of his health status.
“Nigeria belongs to all of us, we are not running a banana State. Buhari is taking Nigerians for a ride. He doesn’t have the right to jet out to London without handing over power to the Vice President in line with the constitution
“At 95 years old, my group has seen enough of this country for more than 70 years. Nigeria is bleeding and only God knows how much of taxpayers money must have been spent by the President on his health. It is arrogance for Buhari to think he can govern Nigeria from abroad. He should hand over power to Osinbajo”, Clark stated.
