Opposition parties claim Buhari mentally, physically unfit to be president

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari is unfit to continue in office.

The opposition political parties said they carefully studied Buhari over the months, especially since his return to the country after the sickness that took him out of Nigeria for the better part of 2017, and have come to the conclusion that he is no longer mentally and physically fit to lead a nation like Nigeria in this century.

Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, CUPP 1st National spokesperson in a statement on Thursday, hinged reason for the call on the recent fall of President Buhari during the APC rally in Kogi and Kaduna states.

He said: “A few recent examples will be necessary here. One, you will recall how the President almost fell flat on his face during his recent campaign visit to Lokoja, Kogi State. Despite that he flew into the town, the few steps the President took at the rally venue had a huge toll on him. When he was invited to the podium, he lost balance immediately he stood up.

“It was the timely intervention of his aides who were already keeping their eyes on him since they know his health status, that saved us what would have resulted into a national disaster.

“A few days after the Kogi episode, a similar scenario played out at the venue of his campaign rally in Kaduna. After he trekked a short distance to his seat, President Buhari was clearly exhausted. He was still managing to wave to those who were already at the venue when he suddenly sunk heavily into his seat even at a time the national anthem was being recited. The seat was his saving grace on that occasion.

“Still on his uninspiring ongoing re-election campaigns, we are all witnesses to the embarrassment President Buhari subjected the country to in Warri, Delta State. When it was time for him to present his party’s flag to the State governorship candidate, Great Ogboru, the President embarrassingly referred to the man as “the presidential candidate.”

After those who surrounded him corrected him, President Buhari again referred to Ogboru as “the senatorial candidate.”

“Again, he was corrected and he came up with the most embarrassing one by saying the man is the “governortorial” candidate. The President must be using a different dictionary because the word “governortorial” does not exist in any good dictionary.

“You will also recall when he featured on a town hall meeting called “The
Candidates” which was broadcast live on the Nigerian Television
Authority. Among his various goofs at that event was when he was asked why he is seeking second term and he said since his party leaders chose him, he had to run.

“All those who watched that programme will recall how Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo who featured with him struggled very hard to come to his rescue whenever he went off the track, which he did many times. This probably explained why his men did not allow him to participate in the presidential debate organised by the Nigeria Election Debate Group and the Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria.

“We have come to the conclusion that re-electing Buhari will only empower members of the cabal that his wife admitted has hijacked his Presidency to rule us for another four years from the dark.

“In order to save this great nation the disaster that will follow if President Buhari is in a rare happenstance re-elected, we the opposition political parties have therefore filed litigation in court seeking to declare him unfit to contest for 2019 election because of his mental instability.

“We are also seeking from the Court an Order disqualifying President Muhammadu Buhari from contesting the election to the office President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and an injunction restraining INEC from recognizing his candidacy.

“Nigerians will also be glad to know that to prove that we are on the right path, we are also asking the court to grant an order directing President Buhari to make public the results of the medical examination which we ask that he be subjected to, so that no citizen will be in doubt that we are saving the country from calamity by taking these steps.”
