A legal practitioner, Ebun Adegboruwa, on Tuesday said the President Muhammadu Buhari’s All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government has lost the moral right to stay in power beyond 2019.
Adegboruwa said the Buhari-led government has failed to meet its electoral promises to Nigerians two years after assuming office.
Featuring on Channels Television’s programme, Sunrise Daily, the legal practitioner, however, noted that there were improvements in a few areas such as the anti-corruption war.
He said, “The All Progressives Congress (APC) has lost the moral right to retain power, it goes beyond the President’s state of health. Everything you call a bond between a people and a leader has been broken, every promise made to Nigerians has been broken except in a few areas of course like the fight against insurgency and of course the fight against corruption minus the media trial of course, surely we have seen some improvement.”
Adegboruwa also faulted the President over his refusal to disclose his health status to Nigerians, a situation he described as discouraging.
The lawmaker maintained that citizens have the right to know the health status of their President who has been in London for 100 days.
“Personally, we as Nigerians deserve to join the President in prayers to ask that he be healed and return to his duty post.
“But in terms of the length of stay, in terms of the manner of treatment, in terms of the strategy of relating with Nigerians concerning what the President is going through, it’s quite very discouraging and unfortunate because this is a party that came into power on the mantra of change and engagement and so we will be surprised that the President could be going through any circumstance of ill health which Nigerians are not entitled to know.
“Today marks 100 days that the President has been out of the country on a consecutive basis and you wonder whether you can say you have such leadership in terms of the capacity of the executive president to manage the affairs of a nation.
“So I believe those agitating that the President should resume or resign are right in the sense that we didn’t anticipate that we’ll be ruled from another country because Nigeria is a sovereign nation,” he said.
