House Of Reps members disagree Over Buhari's Health Status

Members of the House of Representatives quarrelled on Tuesday over the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Lawmakers clashed over the use of the word “sickness” in referring to Buhari or explaining his reason for being away from the country to the United Kingdom since January 19.

PUNCH reports that while some members said Buhari was sick and was away to treat himself, others claimed that he was on “medical vacation.”

Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, the house majority leader was said to have initiated the argument in an attempt to stop the Chief Whip, Mr. Alhassan Ado-Doguwa from calling President Buhari a sick man.

Ado-Doguwa was contributing to and opposing a motion seeking to investigate the alleged harassment of members of ‘Kwankwasia’ followers, a political group loyal to former Kano State Governor, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.

He noted that the country was already under tension owing to the absence of Buhari and could not afford any "partisan" activities that could lead to insecurity.

The lawmaker added that the group was already campaigning for the 2019 presidential elections in a volatile place like Kano.

“Our beloved President is sick abroad.

“These partisan activities are completely unnecessary and baseless. The police must do their work of protecting lives and property anywhere in the country.” he said
