A group under the auspices of Northern Patriotic Assembly (NPA),has
warned prominent politicians in the country to stop exploiting
President Muhammadu Buhari’s health for political gains.
In a statement signed by the group’s president, Hon Idakwo Jibrin and
secretary general, Alhaji Adamu Wakil, who described such action as
immoral and despicable, accused some leaders of trying to use Buhari’s
health situation to create tension in the country.
The group cited remarks relating to the president’s health credited to
Chief Bisi Akande, Femi Falana, describing such as part of a larger
plot to plunge the country into crisis, bearing in mind that the
Yorubas will benefit from it.
The group said what is a personal challenge to the president has been
politicized beyond comprehension by politicians who hide behind the
pretext of agitating for what is in the country’s best interest.
The statement reads in parts: “Even more unnerving is situation
whereby people we once held in high esteem as elders, leaders and
professionals decided to descend into the mud, using President
Buhari’s health as their new object of obsession.
“They have fanatically tried to impose this obsession of theirs on
other Nigerians in a desperate bid to cause panic and confusion”. ELANZANEWS
