Some youth groups under the aegis of Concerned Nigerians have defied the early morning showers in the Federal Capital Territory to protest the non-disclosure of the president’s health status.

Speaking at the Unity Fountain in Abuja, members of the coalition say that the long stay of the president abroad has resulted into a near comatose system.

They therefore asked President Muhammadu Buhari to either resume or resign.

Among those leading the protest were social activists such as Charles Oputa (Charlie Boy) and President Campaign for Democracy, Bako Usman.

Many supporters of the group have also taken to social media to air their views on why the President should resume or consider resigning.

Meanwhile, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, on Sunday reacted to the news of the planned protest ahead of Monday, describing it as unconstitutional.

“The President at all times will do what is legal and what is constitutional, so what they are asking for is not known to our law. The president will stand by our laws at all times, he would uphold the law and defend the law,” he added.

Speaking on the state of Buhari’s health and when he is likely to return, Adesina said: “Its already In the public domain that the President is recovering very well and as soon as the doctors give the all-clear, he will be back home. We are not part of the medical team so we cannot say until the doctors say, Mr President you can proceed, then that is when he will come.” (Channels TV)
