The Mega Progressive People’s Party (MPPP) has accused a group led by a socialite, Charly Boy calling on President Muhammadu Buharia to either to return to Nigeria from his London medical vacation or resign, of overplaying politics with the President’s health.
It said that apart from Chraly Boy’s group, politicians and civil rights activists had gone into frenzy political utterances that were capable of heating up the polity in the country, adding that the clamour for President Buhari’s resignation by the ‘Resume or Resign Campaign’ protesters over his sickness was politics taken too far.
The National Youth leader of the party, Olorunyomi Ogunbodede, said in an interview that though Nigerians deserved to know the health status of their president, but that for people to go to the streets to demand his resignation was unnecessary and in bad taste.
Olorunyomi Ogunbodede, who was in Ekiti State for the swearing-in of the 23-member State Executive Committee of the party, said: “going to the streets to demand the President’s resignation at this period is unhealthy for our country.
“We have a sitting Vice President and ministers who are carrying on the task. The constitution has already addressed the fear by empowering the Vice President to carry on. So, why generating tension?”[myad]
