The Ahmed Makarfi’s faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said Nigerians deserve to know the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye, yesterday, the faction berated the presidency over its handling of Buhari’s health issue.
The faction said the Presidency should be more transparent in managing the health issue of Buhari.
According to Adeyeye, “The national caretaker committee led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi, CON, on behalf of the entire PDP organs and family nationwide joins other Nigerians to welcome back the president and commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari from the United Kingdom this morning.
“We pray for the president’s complete recovery and advise the presidency to be more transparent in managing the health of President Muhmmadu Buhari.
“Nigerians deserve to know the health status of their president and how it’s being managed.”
The Makarfi’s faction commended the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo for standing in while the President was away on medical vacation.
“In the same vein, we thank the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo for holding forth creditably while the president was away and urge him to continue to work assiduously to lift the nation out of this debilitating economic recession.
“To achieve this, all hands must be on deck. There is therefore the need to reduce political tension and bring all Nigerians together.
“We call on all Nigerians to continue to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari’s quick recovery and for wisdom for the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbanjo in the onerous task of steering the ship of state,” the statement added.
After spending over 50 day on medical vacation in London, Buhari in the early hours of Friday arrived Nigeria.
Similarly, Makarfi himself had earlier said the PDP will continue to pray for Buhari’s quick recovery to handle the tough job ahead.
