#POLITICS: Why I said Buhari Is Dead.

Share This
Controversial ex-British lawmaker, Eric Joyce has given his reasons why he believe President Muhammadu Buhari is dead.

Recall that Mr. Joyce has been recently active concerning the health status of Buhari.

He had in some of his twitter posts, suggested that the President, who has been away to the United Kingdom for medicare, has died.

In his latest post on Friday morning, the ex-British soldier gave what he called the reasons the truth about Buhari is being kept away from Nigerians.

He wrote via @ericjoyce, his twitter handle, “Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari, was last seen by people other than his own staff in early May.

“According to his staff, he handed over ‘co-ordinating power’ to his Vice President and headed to London for medical treatment.

“Shortly beforehand, he had returned from around two months in London, also apparently receiving medical treatment there.

“His staff now say that he will soon return to Nigeria, but he may then return shortly thereafter to London for more medical treatment.

“For three weeks, the presidency has failed to prove any evidence that Mr Buhari is still with us.



“There has been no detail at all about Mr Buhari’s condition.

“Photographs, obviously historical ones, depicting Mr Buhari apparently in rude health have been provided to media outlets in Nigeria.

“Some Nigerian outlets have provided largely nonsensical quotes from ‘inside’ the London High Commission where they claim Mr Buhari is recuperating.



“Nigeria is a vibrant, growing and increasingly powerful democracy; the transition of power between Mr Buhari and his predecessor Goodluck Jonathan was exemplary – indeed it was of historical importance for the whole of Africa.

“There is only one course of action for a democracy when a president becomes ill or dies; officials must brief the public on the medical condition of the president and if it does not seem that he is likely to be able to continue in the role then power must pass formally to the Vice President.

“The present state of play is having the effect of suggesting that nothing has changed in Nigeria and actually this is not correct. Things have changed and Nigerian democracy is all the better for it.



“There is a contested politics now – but that cuts both ways and the APC must not now resort to the ‘old ways’ that party was created to consign to the past.

“There are only a small number of alternatives in respect of the present scenario. First, Mr Buhari is recuperating and will resume his role.

“If this is the case, then why is not presenting himself on camera to his people? Second, Mr Buhari has passed on.
