Outspoken lawyer and human rights activist, Femi Falana, has advised Nigeria’s ailing leader, President Muhammadu Buhari to bow out amidst health complications that have casted doubts over the West African country’s seat of power.
Speaking today in a statement, Falana recounted:
“Instead of embarking on regular briefing on the actual state of the health of President Buhari, officials of the federal government have continued to assure the Nigerian people(that Buhari is hale and hearty).
“In defending the absence of the president at the last FEC meeting and other state functions, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Mr Garba Shehu stated that ‘the president’s doctors have advised on his taking things slowly, as he fully recovers from the long period of treatment in the United Kingdom some weeks ago’.
“As we join the Nigerian people of goodwill to pray for a speedy recovery of President Buhari, we are compelled to advise him to heed the advice of his personal physicians by taking a rest to attend to his health without any further delay.”
