|Cabinet Declares Yar'adua Fit To Continue In Office by sman1: 11:52pm On Jan 27, 2010|
The Executive Council of the Federation today said that President Umaru Yar’Adua is not incapable of discharging his office.
But the Senate has directed Yar’Adua to transmit a letter to the National Assembly that he had proceeded on vacation.
The Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Dan Abutu, on Friday gave the council 14 days to pass a resolution to determine the state of health of ailing President Umaru Yar‘Adua in line with Section 144 of the 1999 Constitution.
The President has been receiving treatment for a heart condition in a Saudi hospital for over 60 days.
Rising from a meeting today, however, the Executive Council, through the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mr. Michael Aondoakaa, said that Yar’Adua was fit to continue in office, insisting that a medical treatment outside the country did not constitute incapacity.
The Senate during its session today directed the President to forward a letter to the National Assembly that he had proceeded on vacation in line with the Section 144 of the Constitution.
