A Nigerian, Toyin Dawodu has filed a lawsuit compelling the senate to ascertain if President Muhammadu Buhari can discharge his constitutional duties.
According to a statement dated June 28, Dawodu instructed his lawyers to file the action [FHC/ABJ/CS/508/2017] at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Dawodu stated that it was possible that President Buhari is being held by his handlers against his will.
He added that Nigerians deserve to know his current status and whereabouts.
He said, “But I love Nigerian more. I fear for my country, I fear for the future of millions of Nigerians both living and unborn.”
He urged Nigerians to pressurize the senate to determine if Buhari was still capable of ruling the country.
“I am also urging every Nigerian to impress upon their Senators to discharge their duty by constituting a medical panel as prescribed by the constitution to determine if President Buhari is capable of discharging his duty.”
Dawodu stated, “Several reports have indicated that the country is being controlled by a group of unelected bureaucrats whose motives may not align with the aspirations of most Nigerians.
“Reports have also indicated that our elected President is in such a medical incapacitation that even his wife is not allowed to see him in his incapacitated state.
“It is possible, that President Buhari is being held by his handlers against his will and Nigerians deserve to know his current status and his where about.
“This Press release explains my rational for the lawsuit to all Nigerians and other well-wishers of Nigeria.
He added that Acting President Yemi Osinbajo was not fully in charge of the country.
“The problem with the current situation is that the acting president is not fully in charge of the country.
“There is no proof that any elected official, including leaders of both houses of assembly have seen the President in the last several weeks.
“There is no proof that even the vice President or any member of the cabinet of President Buhari has spoken to him in his current incapacitated state.
“I love and respect President Buhari and I wish and pray fervently for God to give him strength to gain back his health.”
