It’s been 60 days since President Buharil left Nigeria to United Kingdom for medical treatment.
His health has been a trending discuss in the country and the presidency has said Buhari’s health condition does not allow for constitutional crisis since he officially handed over to Vice President before he left.
Recall the FELLOW PRESS reported that Peoples Democratic Party, has advised Mr. President to resign just the way he (Buhari) advised late Musa Yar’Adua to resign back then in 2009 when he (Yar’Adua) was sick.
Reacting to an article that speculated imminent political and constitutional crisis the country might face in the light of President’s absence from the country, Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, Garba Shahu, said such is a needless and exaggerated speculations.
The article was titled “The Gentleman’s Agreement that Could Break Apart Nigeria”, and published in Foreign Policy, a united state-based magazine.
