President Buhari's sickness is hold back Nigeria - Chief Bisi Akande
Chief Bisi Akande
The former interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande has begged Nigerians not stop praying for President Muhammadu Buharis health to improve.
This appeal was made in a statement released by Chief Akande on Monday, May 1, further saying if the president gets well quick, the nation will be safe from a looming crisis emanating from the recent development.

He said that he was aware that President Buhari was seriously ill when he discovered that he was absent from the wedding ceremony of his grandson in Kaduna, on Saturday, April 29.
Akande believed that corruption is now fighting back and Nigeria seriously need President Buhari to hold on to ensure a total victory against the evil forces.

The statement issued by Akande reads in part:

The health of the leader is intricately intertwined with the health of the nation. It is more so in a delicately fragile union of nations called Nigeria. I did not see President Buhari at the wedding of his grandson in Kaduna last Saturday. I was sad and I wept. 

When last we met at the wedding of his daughter in Abuja last December, I complained to him that I was not happy about his stressful looks. His reply connoted some allusions to circumstances where an honest man fighting corruption is surrounded mostly by unpatriotic greedy ruling class. He felt painfully frustrated. 

He assured me he would soon be going on vacation. I then knew that corruption has effectively been fighting back. And I prayed for Nigeria. That was why Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and I rushed to meet him in London in February this year when he was sick and could not return as scheduled from his vacation. The rest is history but we must appreciate that his poor health is already taking its toll on the health of Nigeria as a polity. 

There are two challenges facing the country today. The first and the most critical is the health of the president which, unfortunately, is a development beyond his control and for which we did not prepare. The second is the disorder and lack of cohesion between the National Assembly and the presidency. 

These are two great red-flag dangers that have the potential of plunging the country into unprecedented chaos and of destabilising the gains of democracy since 1999.”


In another report, a Pentecostal Bishop, Reverend Seun Adeoye, has also appealed to Nigerians to continue praying for the quick recovery of the President, noting that his well-being is very important for the unity and stability of the country.
Bishop Adeoye warned that if anything evil should happen to President Buhari, Nigeria would be left in the hands of the wrong people and may be difficult to rise again as the burden will too much to bare.
