Human rights lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, has given his own interpretation of the Sallah speech credited to President Muhammadu Buhari where he addressed Nigerians in Hausa language.
Mike Ozekhome, in an interview with Channels TV, said given Nigerians a voice in Hausa language, whether from the Buhari or not, was done in order to remind the Acting President that Buhari is still hovering around the Aso Rock in form of a cabal.
He also noted that the said cabal has not given Prof. Osinbajo the chance to act as he ought to because they always throw in the name of the president whenever he wants to perform in that capacity.
“We have seen a situation where what Dora Akunyili famously referred to as the cabal. The cabal has consistently flown the kite of Mr. President, lurking behind and in front of the corridors of power which was why they gave us a voice some few days ago, whether genuine or simulated, that it was President Muhammadu Buhari addressing Nigerians with much profanity, in his own native language of Hausa which is not the recognized lingual franca.
The point they tried to make is that whether we like it or not, Mr. President is hovering around here, he is right here with us.
“That has not given the acting president who has assumed full powers of the President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo SAN, the capacity, the ability, the space to act because he continues to look behind his shoulders whether they would throw in the name of the president.”
Mike Ozekhome also backed the call by Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose for President Buhari to resign.
“So, Fayose is therefore right and right to call for Mr President’s resignation because it is clear that under section 143 and 144 of the Constitution, the Federal Executive Council, which is made up of ministers appointed by the President himself, cannot recommend that Mr. President be subjected to medical report by a panel set up for that purpose.
“We cannot continue to be like a rudderless country, like an aircraft flying without a compass, it is dangerous,” he said.
Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has in a news conference called for President’ Buhari’s resignation, according to him, the presidency has not been honest about Mr. President’s health.
Mr, Fayose claims that President Buhari has been on life-support since June 6, 2017, at a West-End, London Hospital and that the audio message released by the presidency as the President’s Ramadan message to Nigerians was not done by the president but only a damage-control strategy aimed at further deceiving Nigerians.
“Dear Nigerians, even though President Buhari needs our prayers and we should keep praying that God takes total control of his situation, it is equally imperative that our leaders must tell us the truth at all times.
“It is time that the President takes the interests of Nigerians above his own and resign from office so that our country can move forward. The fate of Nigeria and its people must not remain in the hands of the Presidency cabal, our country must be set free.
