House leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, says President Muhammadu Buhari should have bowed to pressure and addressed Nigerians through a live video call. He said he believes a video call would address better the reasons why The President’s stay in London is prolonged.
This is coming in after the minister of Information and culture, Lai Mohammed reaffirmed that the President is hale and hearty despite insinuations that the President is critically ill and in the hospital.
Despite this reassurance, House leader, Femi Gbajabiamila says the President should talk to Nigerians through a video call rather than talk to a few group of people. He admonished those giving the President advice to advise him to talk to Nigerians and put their minds at rest.
He said: “If I were in President Buhari’s shoes, I would do a video call to speak to Nigerians. I would advise him to do it, if I were in a position to advise him. But the fact that he has not done it does not mean that he is doing something wrong. People have different approaches to things.
“Don’t forget that about a week ago, Mr President spoke to a congregation in Kano state, he was audible, he was clear, and his voice was not doctored.
“But for me, on the issue of speaking to Nigerians, I would have done it differently.
“My approach would have been different, because his health issue had generated a lot of talk and concern like you said and therefore, I would wish the President would talk to everybody as opposed to talking to individuals here and there,” he added.
