Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Makarfi, has said that the party does not care if President Muhammadu Buhari declares his health status.
In an interview with Punch, Makarfi stated that it was enough that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo was named Acting President before Buhari travelled to the UK for medical check-ups over two months ago.
“If Buhari declares his health status, what difference will it make? The fact is that there is an acting president in power, just as the constitution has provided for.
“He has the full powers to perform the functions and duties of the president. If Buhari chooses not to declare his health status, that is his own business.
“The only thing I have against the government is its habit of giving excuses why things don’t work. This has been a government of excuses. We tend to be gullible and follow. As far as we are concerned, Osinbajo is there to do his work.
“The APC is a party of all kinds of contradictions. Right from day one, their contradictions surfaced. There was no effective communication between the party and National Assembly members.
“That lack of communication is affecting the national parliament up till now. We hear that there are many camps within struggling to get one thing or the other.
“There is no cohesion, there is division. They should finish their tenure and see what happens in 2019,” he said.
