A former presidential candidate and former education minister, Oby Ezekwesili has kick started an online campaign, tagged #MedicalPanelOnBuhari calling for an independent medical examination to ascertain the physical and mental health of President Muhammadu Buhari.
She said in a series of tweets made between Monday and Tuesday: “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 @MBuhari.
“We really must assess the physical or mental capability of @NGRPresident to carry on the duties of the office.”
She added that citizens can make demands for an independent panel to help determine the health condition of the president, saying “the conditions of Nigeria have become too grave for us all to sit still and watch a train wreck in the making.”
Ezekwesili further wrote: “As an extremely concerned citizen, I hereby demand a #MedicalPanelOnBuhari since we obviously cannot trust the State House Physician to provide us accurate information.
“It is reasonable to demand now for citizens to have full disclosure on the state of health of @MBuhari.”
The former minister knocked the Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed over his comments about Nigeria being at the mercy of terrorists because foreign bodies refused to sell her arms and ammunition.
