Anglican Cleric Calls On President Buhari Resignation

Having being away from the country for 90 days and counting, the Anglican Bishop of Owo Diocese, Church of Nigeria, Rt. Rev. James Oladunjoye, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to resign.

Buhari left Nigeria on May 7 to London, and is yet to return rather a handful of top government officials have visited him.

Oladunjoye said going abroad for several months within four years of his tenure will not help the country, adding that it was wrong to conceal the health status of the President because he (Buhari) was no more a private person.

Speaking at the Second Session of the Twelfth Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Owo, held at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Imoru town in Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State, he said, “We thank God for the President and for the way he had been ruling according to the law, but there is something wrong that we want the president to address.

“The president has been ill for so many months of his tenure and so, is it not proper for the country to know the condition of the health of our president because he is no more a private personality?

“He is public property and if the president is not strong enough health-wise to continue as a leader of this country, it is better for him to resign so that another qualified individual can take up the office legitimately.”
