|Senate: Buhari Broke No Law, People Should Stop Making Noise About Resignation by bashydemy(m): 7:17pm On Aug 08, 2017|
The senate on Tuesday said President Muhammadu Buhari had not violated any law by not returning from medical vacation after 90 days.
The senate made this known in a statement released by Aliyu Abdullahi, its spokesperson.
It was reacting to protests by a coalition of civil society organizations, operating under the aegis of ‘OurMumuDonDo,’ demanding the resignation of the president over his long medical vacation in London.
It urged the protesters to stop heating up the polity, saying that it was creating unnecessary tension in the country.
The upper chamber said that the protest was an attempt to divert the attention of the presidency from the economic and security issues, which were already being tackled.
It explained that Buhari had complied with the provisions of the 1999 constitution, which stipulated that he must hand over to the vice president and duly inform the two chambers of the legislature about his medical vacation.
“The president has broken no law and therefore we do not see any justification for this diversion and noise-making. The sponsors are merely seeking cheap publicity at the expense of the peace of Nigeria,” he said.
“We, in the National Assembly, are satisfied that there is no vacuum. The Federal Government is working. Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is providing the required leadership. So, there is no reason for the protests.
“All Nigerians now should focus on praying for the safe return of the President.
“We in the senate are happy about the report by the governors and party leaders, who recently visited President Buhari in London and we know he will soon return to continue to provide leadership to our people and the rest of Africa.
“We therefore call on the protesters to stop all these demonstrations and let their sense of patriotism overshadow the zeal for activism by joining other Nigerians to pray for the president.
“We should also pray for the acting president and Nigeria as a country at this critical period,” he said.

I believe the man is speaking for himself and not the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
But I won't be surprised if truly the statement is from the Senate.
But it will be an embarrassment.

Naija Sha, this is really poor thinking.
It is power that gives power, when power removes power all dat is left is powerlessness.
