One hundred days after President Muhammadu Buhari left Nigeria for London on a medical vacation and amid controversy over his health status, the Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos, Mr Joe Igbokwe, has said Nigerians do not need to know what is wrong with the President.
Mr Igbokwe’s said this on Wednesday when he appeared on Channels Television’s breakfast show Sunrise Daily.

Since Monday last week, protesters under the aegis of Concerned Nigerians led by Charly Boy and Deji Adeyanju had held protests in the nation’s capital Abuja demanding that the President should inform Nigerians of his health status and resume or resign.

The protest has led to debates about how long the President can be away for and also led to rival protests.

Asked what he felt about the calls by the Concerned Nigerian group, Mr Igbokwe labelled the actions of the group unconstitutional, adding that Nigerians do not need to know the President’s health status as it is a private matter.
“It is against the law for them to protest that the president must resume or resign when the needful has been done. The president has not done anything wrong, he has transmitted power to the acting president,” he said.

Mr Igbokwe added, “We don’t need to know (what is wrong with the president); it is a private thing. We have presidents that have died in office in America, people can be sick.”
