When Can The Leader Of The Country Be Declared Incapacitated by YourWife(f): 11:36am On Aug 09, 2017
Please Nairalanders, I need some clarifications on something that has got me thinking, bar worried.

President Muhammadu Buhari left the country on 7th of May 2017, and its 9th August 2017 today. I mean, it is already 93 days, and our president has not set foot in the country, and his duties are supposed to be officially conducted by the Acting President.

When will it be appropriate to declare PMB incapacitated, and to announce a new President and Commender-in-Chief of the Armed Forces? I'm sincerly curious. Thanks

You are joking right? I thought there was supposed to be a certain 90days window.

(2) Where the medical panel certifies in the report that in its opinion the President or Vice-President is suffering from such infirmity of body or mind as renders him permanently incapable of discharging the functions of his office, a notice thereof signed by the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall be published in the Official Gazette of the Government of the Federation. Nigerian constitution

(3) The President or Vice-President shall cease to hold office as from the date of publication of the notice of the medical report pursuant to subsection (2) of this section.

Good to know. So our President can stay away from the country for let's say 6months, and it won't matter. Now I can go and continue my work... IPODS, Biafrans and Wailers... Bad news for you... Our constitution is backing our President.
