•President Buhari.
•President Buhari.

The above question raised by Engr Babachir Lawal, the (suspended) almighty Secretary to Government of Federation (SGF), got me brain-storming for hours. It was a question that raised more questions than answers. To worsen the whole denigration, his gesture was nothing to laugh over, as he was caught on camera rolling his tongue, to mock journalists. Surprisingly, we swept it under the carpet without considering its antecedent and consequences. For a high-ranked official in the Presidency to ask such question means all is not well with the highest seat in the land.

Truly, we need to ask same question, considering the events playing out in the last four months. Presidency sent Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to Senate for confirmation as substantive chairman, but same Presidency through the Department of State Service (DSS) sent background checking report to Senate to nail Magu. This narrative continued when Presidency cleared the ‘commander-in-chief of grass-cutter’ of any wrong-doing, as alleged by the Senate. Just after three months, Presidency suspended same man for same offence. Quite numbers of time the Presidency insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari was not sick, but himself came back and called his acolytes liars indirectly, by saying he had never been sick like that before.

These recent contrasts are telling us that continuous absence of President Buhari in official spots is heading the nation into anarchy. How can a house as powerful as Aso Rock be divided against itself? If we can recall some months back, that the President's wife, Aisha Buhari and the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, publicly declared that the cabal had hijacked government from Mr Buhari. I can’t agree more! All is not well with Aso Rock. The cabals are feasting on our nation through President Buhari's illness.

Let me shock you all with this: President Buhari’s presidency ended on the day he departed for medical tourism, 19th January, 2017. It seems his creator had made it possible for him to preside over his nation twice in a period of 20 months each; and any attempt to drive his luck beyond it will spell doom. Whatever you have been seeing accorded to him from then till now is hoax and by proxy. The old man’s health is no more in agreement with tasks of his office. The cabals are just holding sway in Buhari’s government for their selfish interests.

Have you heard of N1 billion Euro bond, $500 million Euro Bond, and $6 billion loanall to fund 2016 budget that will end in a couple of hours? To make it clearer, they came to fore between 19th January, 2017 and 28th April, 2017. We need to rescue Nigeria from the cabals who are bent on keeping an ailing President in power by force. We should not allow them to kill our President because of their selfish gains. He needs to attend to his health and enjoy his old age with his family. President Buhari cannot take critical decisions for this country due to his illness; he must take the path of honour and resign now, so as to deliver this nation from the cabals.

I don’t want him to die in office. I also don’t want my country to descend into anarchy. He should hand over power to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, to avoid the avoidable and put shame on his enemies who want him to die in office. Currently, the cabals are his greatest enemies; they have succeeded in turning him to figure head, while they are hiding under his name to rule the nation illegally.

Please, allow President Buhari to attend to his health, Nigeria’s current condition require not an ailing President or part-time President. Let us saddle Yemi Osinbajo with the responsibility of steering this ship to 2019. Enough is enough of governance vacuum. It is almost two years, and some agencies are still board-less.

I will end it here by asking again: Who is the Presidency?

Obi is Lead Partner, Good Governance Advocates.
