To drive home her point, the former World Bank senior official has started an an online campaign called #MedicalPanelOnBuhari
She said via her Twitter handle that the need becomes to do that becomes necessary because the situation of Nigeria has become too grave.
She wrote, “We really must assess the physical or mental capability of @NGRPresident to carry on the duties of office. Citizens can collectively push for an independent panel to help us make the critical medical determination of the state of mind and body of our President, @MBuhari.
“The conditions of Nigeria have become too grave for us all to sit still and watch a train wreck in the making.”
She said that Nigerians have the right to know the full status of the President’s state of health.
She wrote, “As an extremely concerned citizen, I hereby demand for a #MedicalPanelOnBuhari since we obviously cannot trust the State House physician to provide us accurate information. It is reasonable demand now for citizens to have full disclosure on the state of health of @MBuhari.
