See The Group Pressurizing Bukola Saraki To Declare The Seat Of The President Vacant

A pro democracy group has pressurized the Senate President Bukola Saraki to declare the seat of the president vacant if president Muhammadu Buhari does not show up in the country in the next 18 days, AIT News reports.

According to the report, which was published on AIT online news portal on Wednesday, the pro democracy group has made known its plan to begin a daily sit -out at the National Assembly in 18days if the legislature refuses to reveal the health status of Buhari.

In a statement released by its Convener, Deji Adeyanju, and Secretary, Dr. John Danfulani, the group noted that Buhari has now been absent from office, and from Nigeria for 72 days, and if the situation remains unchanged, it would commence the sit-out on the 90th day of his absence.

“The Leadership of the National Assembly must choose between the Nigerian people and the cabal”, Concerned Nigerians declared.

“72 days is too long for a Commander-in-Chief to be away from his country, without any explanation to the people that voted him”, the group said.

“We hereby, demand that the National Assembly invokes Section 144 (4) of the Nigerian Constitution, and direct the setting up of a Medical Panel, in conjunction with the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to ascertain whether the President is incapacitated”, the statement continued.

“If the President is found with any infirmity that renders him incapable of discharging his duties, the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, shall officially declare him incapable of discharging his duties, and declare his office vacant, as prescribed in (2) of section 143”, the group declared, reported by AIT News.
