– Nigerian Labour congress says it has no interest in investigation the present health condition of President Buhari
– The association said the President’s is allowed to go on a vacation leave without his health being probed
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has said the association is not worried about President Buhari’s health and would not be investigating the President’s reason for taking a leave vacation.
Mr Ayuba Wabba, the NLC president, said on Friday, January 27 that the association is not interested in demanding that President Buhari address the nation about the state of his health.
According to NAN, Mr Wabba said: “We would want to state emphatically and unequivocally that we did not at any time make such a statement.’’
“ The reasons for this are quite obvious. As an organisation, we do not work on rumours. Secondly, we are aware that Mr President is on leave and that before he proceeded on leave, he handed over to Mr Vice President.
“We also recognise the fact presidential powers and immunity do not cover health. Thus, like any other human being, Mr President could take ill once in a while.
“But most importantly, issues of life and death of any citizen, let alone that of the number one citizen are too sacred to be trivialised.
“We therefore distance ourselves from the rumour mills on the health status of Mr President.”
Wabba advised the media against peddling unconfirmed news.
He said: “As we look forward to welcoming him back to the country whenever he resumes, we also urge the citizenry not to allow themselves to be put on a panic mode by virtue of unsubstantiated stories in the media.
“President Buhari met all the conditions precedent regarding his absence from office before proceeding on leave to which he is entitled.”
Meanwhile, the presidency has announced that it will investigate and prosecute those peddling rumours about President Muhammadu Buhari’s health.
The federal government is investigating sources of “subversive messages” on President Muhammadu Buhari’s health.
The presidency declared that those saying the president is dead will be made to face “the full wrath of law”.
