Buhari has not broken any law and will not resign -- Presidency



Following the long spent time of President Buhari who has spent up to 90 days in London as a result of his health issues which is yet to be disclosed by the Federal government, the Presidency has said Buhari will not resign.

The statement by Malam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President, while talking to the House Correspondants concerning the civil society organizations, CSOs protest in Abuja requesting for the return or resignation of  President Buhari following his health issues.

He said, 

“Those making the calls are exercising their rights in line with the constitution of this country. Of what use, or value is a democracy in which citizens cannot embark on peaceful protests? So we respect their right to convene or undertake peaceful protest. 

“On the call for the President to resign or disclose whatever, I think they are stepping outside the laws of this country. Anyone conversant with the constitution of this country will have noticed or seen that Mr. President has complied 100 percent with the requirements of the constitution of this country. 

“He has handed over power to the vice president as required by the constitution and the vice president is carrying out the affairs of this country. He is undertaking activities of government in line with the constitution in a way that the President himself has given words of commendation. 

“So the President has not breached any law. What he has done is perfectly in line with the constitution and people are looking for things to say. I think they should do their research very well.”
