Oby Ezekwesili, a former minister of education, has called for the set up of an independent panel to examine the physical and mental health of President Muhammadu Buhari
Ezekwesili said the “conditions of Nigeria have become too grave for us all to sit still and watch a train wreck in the making”.
The ex-education minister, in a series of tweets, said the panel was necessary because, according to her, the state house physician cannot be trusted to provide accurate information on the President’s health.
“I think that at this stage and depth of fragility of the Nigeria-State, Privacy has to yield ground to our Right-to-know as citizens, the state of health of @MBuhari,” she wrote.
“We really must assess the physical or mental capability of @NGRPresident to carry on the duties of office.
“Citizens can collectively push for an Independent Panel to help us make the critical medical determination of the state of mind and body of our President, @MBuhari. The conditions of Nigeria have become too grave for us all to sit still and watch a train wreck in the making.
“As an extremely concerned citizen, I hereby demand for a #MedicalPanelOnBuhari since we obviously cannot trust the State House Physician to provide us accurate information. It is reasonable demand now for citizens to have full disclosure on the state of health of@MBuhari.”
