Elder statesman and Ijaw leader Edwin Clark has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for jetting to the United Kingdom, for medical treatment and he should declare to Nigerians the sickness he is suffering from.
According to him, Buhari should hand over power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in line with global best practices because he cannot run Nigeria from abroad.
Clark, who said these during a press conference in Abuja, said as President, he should inform Nigerians about whatever ailment he had been suffering from.
He said the Supreme Court should be approached to seek interpretation of what Buhari had been doing without telling Nigerians the details of his health status.
“Buhari should tell Nigerians the sickness he is suffering”, he said.
“Nigeria belongs to all of us, we are not running a banana State. Buhari is taking Nigerians for a ride. He doesn’t have the right to jet out to London without handing over power to the Vice President in line with the constitution.
“At 95 years old, my group has seen enough of this country for more than 70 years. Nigeria is bleeding and only God knows how much of taxpayers money must have been spent by the President on his health. It is arrogance for Buhari to think he can govern Nigeria from abroad. He should hand over power to Osinbajo”, Clark stated.
