Former Minister of Education, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili has called for an Independent Medical Panel to determine the State of health of President Muhammadu Buhari.
This call is coming barely 24 hours after the Boko Haram sect killed over 43 rice farmers in Borno State.
According to Ezekwesili;
“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 President Muhammadu Buhari. We really must assess the physical or mental capability of the Nigeria 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, Muhammadu 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 #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 President Buhari.”
