Ubani explained that the provisions of Section 144 of the Constitution ought to be invoked by a resolution passed by two-thirds majority of members of the Federal Executive Council, declaring the President incapable of discharging the functions of his office. He said, “After the resolution by the Federal Executive Council, the Senate President ought to constitute a panel of four medical practitioners, who specialise in the area of ailment of the President and the President’s personal physician. “If the report of the panel declares the President as suffering from infirmity which renders him permanently incapable of discharging the functions of his office, and the Senate President as well as the Speaker of the House of Representatives publishes the report in a gazette, the President ceases to hold office. “But the reality is without a time lag for these steps stated clearly in the Constitution, it will be difficult under the prevailing political environment, when the ministers are appointees of the President, to invoke the constitutional provision.” In his reaction, a former Special Adviser to the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, Mr. Segun Adeniyi, said the drama surrounding Buhari’s health might have just begun. Adeniyi, who served as the spokesman for Yar’Adua when the ex-President was sick and was incommunicado for several weeks, said this in a message on his official Twitter handle. Adeniyi’s tweet comes on the eve of the seventh anniversary of Yar’Adua’s death. He said, “Going by feelers from Aso Rock, the real drama of the health challenge of President Buhari may have just started.”]]>
