A civil society group, Change the Change Coalition, on Thursday vowed to stage mass protests if President Muhammadu Buhari failed to attend the next Federal Executive Council meeting.
Buhari, who has hardly been seen in public in recent weeks, was absent at the last two FEC meetings, which were chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Reacting to the development, the group warned that it would mobilize Nigerians to compel Buhari to officially transmit power to Osinbajo, if he, once again, excuses himself from the next FEC meeting.
Instead of staying away from work, Buhari should officially transmit power to Osinbajo, so as to be free to travel abroad for more medical attention, the group said.
National Coordinator of CCC, Mazi Bismarck Oji, spoke at a news conference in Enugu.
Oji likened the current intrigues surrounding Buhari’s health to the situation that prevailed in the Presidential Villa during the time of the late former president, Umaru Yar’Adua.
He said, “What we have before us is another Yar’Adua scenario – the President has been absent from at least two FEC meetings consecutively.
“Firstly, the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, told us the President was attending to more important matters and delegated the Vice President to chair the meeting.
“What could be more important than chairing the weekly FEC meeting, more so when his attendance would have allayed fears about his health status?
“Secondly, Lai Mohammed told us the President would be working from home.
“That is an insult on the intelligence of Nigerians and another episode in the theatre of the bizarre which this administration has turned governance into.
I could be a geek sometimes and a Social person another time, it depends on the Circumstance.
