Elder statesman and First Republic Federal Commissioner for Information, Edwin Clark has berated President Muhammadu Buhari for travelling to London, United Kingdom, without handing over power to vice president Yemi Osinbajo.
Naija News recalls that the president had left the country for London yesterday for a medical checkup. Reacting to Buhari’s trip, Clark demanded that he has to inform the country the kind of ailment he is suffering from. He said, “Buhari should tell Nigerians the sickness he is suffering.” According to him, Buhari should comply with the Constitution and do the needful in line with global best practices because he cannot run Nigeria from abroad. Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, Clark argued that the Supreme Court should be approached to seek interpretation of what Buhari had been doing without telling Nigerians the details of his health status. 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.”
