A group of Nigerians, under the aegis of Coalition of Concerned Nigerians, has asked the Federal Executive Council to write the National Assembly to request a medical examination of President Muhammadu Buhari to determine his suitability to remain in office.
The coalition made the request in a statement in Lagos on Sunday.
Members of the group noted that having spent 114 days out of the first 180 days of the year on medical examination, Buhari’s suitability to continue in office had been called to question.
The statement was signed by the Chairman, National Conscience Party, Tanko Yunusa; a lawyer and social activist, Ikechukwu Ikeji; a former Commissioner, Delta State Oil Producing Commission, Ken Okolugbo; a lawyer and businessman, Turner Ogboru; and a chartered accountant and public affairs analyst, Bala Zakkar.
The group also asked the National Assembly to amend the constitution to remove the power to initiate investigation into the health of the President from the FEC and to also put a limit to the duration a President or governor can go on medical vacation.
