The Arewa Consultative Forum has said that President MUHAMMADU BUHARI would not resign over his ill-health as being taunted in some quarters.
This, ACF said, was because the President had done the needful by transferring power to his deputy, Professor YEMI OSINBAJO, as stipulated by the 1999 Constitution.
You will recall that the Co-Convener of BringBackOurGirls, AISHA YESUFU had asked the President to resign on Friday due to ill health.
In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the forum, MUHAMMADU IBRAHIM, the ACF noted with regret that in other clime, citizens wished their leaders well when ill or incapacitated but not so in Nigeria.
However, President of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, YERIMA SHETIMA said the call by AISHA YESUFU was not wrong.
He also told correspondent TAIWO OLAPADE that the failure of information handlers of the federal government to tell Nigerians the truth about President’s health gave room for speculations.
