Some lawyers have threatened to go to court and compel the Federal Executive Council (FEC) to set up a medical committee, to ascertain the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari within seven days.
The lawyers under the aegis of the United Global Resolve for Peace (UGRFP) told reporters yesterday in Abuja that they had written letters to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, to set up the medical team in line with Sections 144 and 145 of the 1999 Constitution as amended.
Speaking on behalf of others, Mr Pelumi Olajengbesi, said: “This is not about the president or anybody, but the institution called Nigeria. We need to follow what the constitution says and ensure that the right thing is done. We are giving them seven days.
“If they fail to do that and set up the committee, we will be left with no choice, but to approach the court and compel them to do the right thing. They need to invoke that section of our constitution.”
