A Public Affairs Analyst, Mr Adetokunbo Pearse, has asked Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, to have the decency to resign, as he believes that the issue of his health, is worse than what the general public has been made to believe.
He said this on Channels Television’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily, while addressing the issue of the President’s health which has been sparking up various reactions among citizens.
Mr Pearse also expressed concern about the President not being able to attend meetings, among his other constitutional duties, adding he is not competent enough because according to him, even when Mr Buhari was fit, the economy was still failing.
“In the first place, when he was well, he failed his nation – the economy collapsed under him, there is insecurity everywhere. Nothing is working, all the indices of poverty is gone up, unemployment is gone up, the direct foreign investment is gone down, the stock market is in disarray, nothing was working in the country when he was well – now he is not well, things are only bound to get worse”.
Furthermore, he expressed dissatisfaction over the fact that Mr Lai Mohammed had addressed Nigerians on behalf of the President, stressing that it isn’t part of his responsibilities to do so.

“Right from the beginning of this administration, we know, I know and the public knows that Lai Mohammed does not speak for the Presidency.
“He has no access, the President has his own spoke’s person. It is only when that Spoke’s Person is frustrated and doesn’t know what to say that they push Lai Mohammed ahead to go and talk to the people and mis-inform the people.”
The Public Affairs analyst, therefore, recommended that the President steps down, adding that if he had provided his doctors report when was asked earlier, the situation may not have gotten so serious.
“We never saw any medical report and when Yar’ Adua was ill, this same President kept saying “show us your medical report” – We are asking the same questions now and I am not saying the President won’t get better but when you have been off the job for so long, you have undermined the process of this country.”
