Hon Abdulmumini Jibrin, the member representing Kiru/ Bebeji Federal constituency of Kano State in the House of Representatives has made an explosive call today in a tweet storm on his handle (@AbdulAbmj), stating that Nigerians are tired of keeping bold faces and making prayers in the face of a hopeless situation.
Hon Jibrin called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately vacate office as a result of his failing health.
Hon Jibrin was the former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations whose battles with the House leaders regarding the 2016 Budget padding scandal earned him a six-month suspension.
According to him, it’s not normal for Nigerians to continue paying the price for the twin debilitating factors of Buhari’s age and health.
“PMB should opt for or encourage to accept a negotiated exit. The country cannot afford a sort of part time president at this time,” Mr. Jibrin said.
“The president I see on camera needs full home care not office, moderately quiet life, enough rest and quality time with his family.
”If we truly love PMB, we must apply some urgent diplomacy, resolve these issues quickly, move on and save the country valuable time.
“Life and health belongs to God but the more I see pictures of Mr President, the more Iam convinced he needs to go and rest. He needs it!”
Friday’s tweets follow a series of tweets from the suspended lawmaker Thursday where he questioned the resolve and famed integrity of the president vis-à-vis the widespread impunity in government.
The Kano State-born politician admits that Buhari’s resignation “is not as easy but it is doable”, adding that special concessions can be given to the president to stem the rot.
“Mr President can be given a special concession to nominate a new VP. We should expect that he nominates a very competent northerner,” he said.
