Popular activist lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, says a group of cabals have hijacked the Presidency owing to the alleged ill health of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Lagos-based lawyer claimed that the cabal is in control of all critical national issues even to the exclusion of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
Adegboruwa, in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Wednesday, insisted that the various foreign trips of the President were a cover up for him to attend to his alleged ill health.
In the statement titled “Nigerians, Arise Now” the activist lawyer said Buhari’s illness was well known to people around him.
He, however, called on the National Assembly to save the nation from the hands of the cabals.
According to Adegboruwa, “The President is truly and truly sick, to the very point that sickness can be inferred, and this is known to many people around him, but they are denying and “padding” it because of their personal and selfish interests.
“It does not gladden my heart to know this, as sickness cannot be a reason to kick against anybody, given that we are all human, but Nigerians have a right to know the true state of health of their leaders, especially the president given the enormous functions and powers attached to his office. He cannot rule us by proxy.
“All the so-called international trips and State visits embarked upon by the President so far were meant to attend to his failing health. The international community and indeed most foreign investors are aware of the true state of the president’s health, as he has visited and received treatment in their hospitals.
“On account of this sickness, the president is manifestly not in control of affairs in Aso Villa and has been hijacked by some cabal, who are directly in control of all critical national issues, even to the exclusion of the Vice President and indeed leaders of the ruling APC. This much has been attested to by the president’s wife and indeed the Senate President.
“Presently, we have on our hands, another Yara dua scenario, whereby some cabal are using the state of health of the president to achieve their own personal gains at the expense of the nation.
“This sickness and the cabalistic conundrum have in turn led to a collapse of governance, ruined the economy and paralysed the national wheel of progress.
“We cannot allow this to continue, but first we must pray for the president and then demand true information on his state of health.
“Nigeria cannot be in the pocket of some cabal, who were never voted into office to exercise any mandate, but have capitalised on the state of health of the president to take over power, indirectly.
“So I call upon the National Assembly and all Nigerians to arise and rescue our nation from this cabal.
“God bless Nigeria, but never again should we be ruled by a cabal.
“This suffering is three much!
