Arewa blasts Akande, others over Buhari’s health



Buhari again snobs Electoral Act Amendment Bill

The Arewa Consultative Forum has faulted the former interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande and other prominent Nigerians for their comments regarding President Muhammadu Buhari’s health.

Akande had on Monday raised the alarm over the President’s health and urged Nigerians to pray fervently for his quick recovery.

Also on Monday, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, and some Nigerian activists called on Buhari to proceed on medical leave immediately to enable him to fully recover.

But the ACF said in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Muammadu Ibrahim, that the comments and call were unnecessary and uncalled for.

The statement read, “Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has observed wih concern that some individuals are carelessly making unnecessary remarks pertaining to the health of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“What Nigerians need to do now is to pray for his good health and not to speculate or draw conclusions which will do no one any good.

“ACF advises Nigerians to please pray for the improvement of Mr. President’s health so that he can serve the nation with more vigor.”

On the frosty relationship between the National Assembly and the Presidency, the ACF advised the National Assembly to think of Nigeria above all other considerations.
