Don’t politicise Buhari’s health condition, clerics urge Nigerians

Those politicising the health condition of President Muhammadu Buhari have been urged to desist from the act, even as Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of representatives, Yakubu Dogara, have both been commended for their recent visit to London to see the president.

The call as given by clerics operating under the aegis of Northern Inter-Faith and Religious Organisations for Peace.

Speaking during a press briefing in Jos, Plateau state, the leader of the group, Musa Fomson, said the health situation of the president should not cause panic in the country.

Fomson, a Bishop said it was unnecessary for some Nigerian especially politicians to create panic in the Nigerian polity.

He further called calm concerning President Buhari’s vacation, while praying that God forgives all who have used the president’s health condition for political gains.

“We are not unaware that there are political and religious leaders that exploited Mr. President’s medical leave to promote hysteria on national level,” Fomson said.

“For this set of people, we intercede on their behalf that god’s mercy shall increase in their lives even as their eyes are opened to the errors of their ways. Our sincere prayer is that the evil they wish on another man is not visited on them,” he said.

The Bishop further described the act as uncalled for, he said it is biblical to pray for our leaders to succeed rather than wish death upon them.

“The politicization of President Buhari’s health is uncalled for and we condemn it in the strongest terms possible.

Because any human can fall ill, what anyone that is genuinely concerned should embark on prayers, not just for health of Mr. President, but for God to strengthen him in implementing the many ongoing reforms that will place Nigeria on the path of greatness,” he said.

Fomson also called on all Nigerian to continue and never relent in their prayers for the return of President Muhammadu Buhari.
