  • 60 days gone now!!! Here are 5 reasons buhari cannot be removed from office
  • Today marks the 60th day since President
    Muhammadu Buhari left for London on
    medical vacation.
    And given the continued secrecy
    surrounding his health status, audible
    voices from around the country have been
    expressing strong opinions that the relevant
    constitutionally empowered bodies should
    activate the process for the president’s
    removal, or in the very least, a full
    disclosure on the president’s health be
    made by his team.
    Just recently, Concerned Nigerians, a pro-
    democracy group, issued an ultimatum to
    the president to address the nation via live
    video on or before Friday, July 8 or face a
    peaceful mass action across the nation.
    In a statement signed by the convener, Deji
    Adeyanju who is a former director of New
    Media for the PDP, and Secretary, John
    Danfulani, the group also demanded that a
    medical panel be set up to determine
    whether or not, the president is
    incapacitated.
    The 60-day mark which doubles as the
    stated maximum limit for a president’s
    entitled annual leave, has assumed
    especially significant threshold owing
    largely to the view fast gaining traction that
    should the president exceed it, his fate in
    office will be out of his hands.
    But this matter is not so straightforward. In
    this case, President Buhari embarked on
    what he called “a scheduled medical follow-
    up”, the length of which he expressly stated
    will “be determined by the doctors’ advice”.
    This was as contained in the 5th May 2017
    controversial letter he transmitted to the
    National Assembly titled, “MEDICAL
    FOLLOW-UP”, which the NASS eventually
    affirmed as duly in conformity with the
    provisions of Section 145 of the Nigerian
    constitution, effectively laying to rest any
    further official controversy.
    In light of all these, we look at some
    compelling reasons why the president’s
    position is not under threat at the moment.
    1) Cabinet too loyal! A two third vote
    against Buhari far-fetched
    On the demand for an open independent
    medical evaluation of the president, the
    chances are extremely slim. For this to
    happen, Section 144, which requires a
    resolution of two-thirds majority of all
    members of the executive council declaring
    the president incapable of discharging the
    functions of his office, will have to be
    activated.
    Just to be clear, members of the executive
    council are all appointees of the president.
    Considering the loyalty and support which
    the president still enjoys from the cabinet, it
    is a pipe dream to expect this process to
    be activated.
    2) Esprit de corp! Overwhelming collective
    disregard for transparency
    The continued collective disregard for
    transparency regarding the health of the
    president by the cabinet is proof enough of
    their united stand in this anomaly. And as
    long as the process for declaring the
    president incapacitated remains unactivated,
    the National Assembly will be unable to set
    in motion the follow-up medical status
    verification process, hence allowing the
    status quo to persist.

    practitioners offer to treat Buhari
    3) Impeachment process too cumbersome,
    complex
    Furthermore, the issue of impeachment as
    advocated by some appears quite far-
    fetched. For this to happen, a months-long
    complex and lengthy process beginning
    with a written allegation of gross
    misconduct signed by not less than one-
    third of the members of the National
    Assembly will have to be initiated. This
    process will end with a resolution of each
    House of the National Assembly supported
    by not less than two-thirds majority of all
    its members, adopting the report of
    investigations into the allegations as
    contained in Section 143 of the
    constitution. Going through with this
    historic process will require a level of
    commitment and singular focus that are at
    the moment far outside the usual practice of
    Nigeria’s legislators.
    4) He is clean! Difficult to establish any
    case of misconduct
    Though gross misconduct is subject to
    interpretation, the issue at hand does not
    appear even remotely within the realm of
    misconduct as the president duly
    transmitted the letter constitutionally
    expected of him before proceeding on his
    medical vacation, and one which was
    affirmed by the NASS.
    More so, with a NASS leadership led by
    members of the president’s party and
    backed by a majority of members from the
    president’s party, their disagreements
    notwithstanding, it is very unlikely that such
    an unprecedented step will be taken
    anytime soon.
    Moreover, there are other regional, political
    and even religious interests at play.
    5) There is no vacuum! Osinbajo is already
    Acting President
    Perhaps the most unlikely demand to be
    effected is the call for the president’s
    resignation. At this moment, it is unclear
    what President Buhari’s actual state of
    health is, but what is clear is that the
    president and his enablers have continued
    to advance the narrative that he embarked
    on a normal medical vacation to which he
    is entitled after fulfilling the constitutional
    requirement, and will be resuming his
    duties as president sometime in the future.
    A consequent argument to this is the claim
    that no vacuum exists since the country
    has an acting president. The recent widely
    circulated personally signed condolence
    message on the late Maitama Sule by
    President Buhari is another sure proof that
    the narrative of his soundness of mind and
    progressive journey in recovery as has
    consistently been maintained by his team is
    not about to be abandoned. No one should
    bank on President Buhari resigning!
