Pray for President Buhari, Fijabi urges Nigerians.

WELL-meaning Nigerians of all faiths have been called on to pray for the good health of President Muhammadu Buhari.

A member of the Federal House of Representatives representing Ibadan South West/ North West Federal Constituency of Oyo State, Hon. Saheed Akinade Fijabi made the call recently while featuring on a breakfast media chat organised by the South West Group of Online publishers, (SWEGOP) in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital following the widespread speculations of the President’s deteriorating health.

According to the two – term lawmaker, “Baba is not resting. When you have a man of that age, and being the President of this nation, where nothing is equal and remember he just came back from medical vacation, he needs some time to rest. We just need to give him time. He is back, he is in Aso Rock working so there is nothing to impeach him about. And his anti-corruption drive is something we need to support. You can see revelations coming from different angles.

“Buhari has not contravened any law and he has not committed any impeachable offence for now, but if anything like that happens, we will move it. But Baba is working. All we can do is to support him and pray for him”.

When asked about the looted funds and measures in place to make sure that they are not re-looted, the Chairman, House Committee on Telecommunications, Fijabi explained, ” it happens in stages. The first step is to recover the stolen funds, you have to take it to a safe place, maybe CBN or wherever. And remember there are lots of cases in court; this is democracy and that is the beauty of democracy. You cannot get things done quickly, if it were to be a military government, the leader would just say do this with the money.

The lawmaker continued, the recent one is in court and they have given the owner of the money a month and after that, you can be sure anybody can come up with any injunction. In democracy people believe things are slow but if they are not, that means you want to remove the transparency from it.  We have a lot of stages, things go from the judiciary to the legislature and to the executive. You can be moving from the courts till you get to the Supreme Court.

“And all the money is in the coffers of the Federal Government but if you are saying they should inject it, they will but we must finish with the judicial aspect of it.
