Senate should apply constitution to Buhari’s absence – Ahmed Joda
Elder statesman and chairman of President Muhammdu Buhari’s transition committee in 2015, Malam Ahmed Joda has called on the National Assembly to apply the constitution, as the President has been away for over 90 days now.
The former ‘Super Perm Sec’, in an interview with Daily Trust on Sunday, said: “Nigeria has a constitution and the constitution provides in details how we deal with a situation like this and we should go and deal with it as stipulated in the constitution.”
Joda also admitted that the calls for secession and hate speeches around the country was giving him sleepless nights and explained how restructuring could lead to more problems.
He said: “It gives me sleepless nights, it keeps me thinking, but what worries me most is the seeming lack of seriousness in the debate. I have not seen anybody who is talking about restructuring either for or against who has articulated the way Nigeria should be restructured.
