Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has called for an investigation on the physical and mental capabilities of President Muhammadu Buhari, owing to his response over the affairs of the nation.
Ezekwesili, reacting to the recent killing of 43 Nigerian farmers by BokoHaram on her Twitter handle, demanded that a medical panel be constituted to give a proper assessment of president Buhari, as the “condition of Nigeria has become too grave for citizens to sit still and go about their duties without asking questions.”
Reacting, she wrote, “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 Buhari”
“We really must assess the physical or mental capability of Nigeria’s President 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 Buhari.
“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 Medical Panel on Buhari since we obviously cannot trust the State House Physicians to provide us with accurate information.
“It is a reasonable demand now for citizens to have full disclosure on the state of health of Buhari.”
