Why Fayose is Right to call for Buhari’s Resignation – Ozekhome
Mr. Mike Ozekhome, a Human Right Lawyer and Activist has Supported Governor Fayose of Ekiti state, on his Position that President Muhammadu Buhari Should resign his Position, due to his health condition.
Last Wednesday, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state called for the resignation of Nigerian ailing President Mohammadu Buhari, who is receiving medical treatment in London.
“It’s time that the president take the interests of Nigerians above his own and resign from office so that our country can move forward.”
“The fate of Nigeria and its people must not remain in the hands of the presidency cabal, our country must be set free”, Fayose said, while speaking with journalists at the state house.
Mr. Mike has now taken side with the governor on the call for the president’s resignation from office.
In an interview with Channel TV, Ozekhome expressively said:
“We have seen a situation where what Dora Akunyili famously referred to as the cabal. The cabal has consistently flown the kite of Mr President, lurking behind and in front of the corridors of power, which was why they gave us a voice some few days ago, whether genuine or stimulated, that it was President Muhammadu Buhari addressing Nigerians with much profanity, in his own native language of Hausa which is not the recognized lingual franca.”
”The point they tried to make is that whether we like it or not, Mr President is hovering around here, he is right here with us. That has not given the acting president who has assumed full Powers of the President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo SAN, the capacity, the ability, the space to act because he continues to look behind his shoulders whether they would throw in the name of the President. So Fayose is therefore right and right to call for Mr President’s resignation, because it is clear that under section 143 and 144 of the constitution, the Federal Executive Council, which is made up of ministers appointed by the President himself, cannot recommend that Mr President be subjected to medical report by a panel set up for that purpose. We cannot continue to be like a rudderless country, like an aircraft flying without a compass, it is dangerous”, he submitted.
