Former minister of education and solid minerals, Dr Obiageli Ezekwesili has added her voice to the ongoing debates concerning the health situation of President Buhari.
Ezekwesili, a former world bank vice president for Africa, took to her Twitter page to express her disappointment over the way and manner the presidency has handled Buhari's health, especially as regards informing Nigerians on his health status.
Ezekwesili, 54, who just returned from the World Economic Forum on Africa in Durban, South Africa, stated that the poor public messaging from the presidency is signaling uncertainty especially to potential foreign investors interested in Nigeria.
She wrote: ''Foreigners ask with genuine concern thinking that one can answer factually. But of course, we sadly can't because as citizens, we don't even know.
''The presidency really should quickly clean up its current chaotic and confusing public messaging on President Buhari's health.
''The damage being done the country is deeper than presidency folks can imagine. The poor public messaging is signaling uncertainty.'''
She advised that sincere messaging and appropriate actions on the president's health would save Nigeria the damage uncertainty does to economies.
Meanwhile, an analyst simply identified as Soma OJ has argued that President Buhari should remain in power no matter how sick he is.
Writing on Ynaija, Soma stated that Nigeria owes the North/Muslims a president given that the region lost power after the death of Umaru Musa Yar'adua in 2010.
He noted that this was a contributing factor to President Buhari’s emergence as president in addition to the fact that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan had had his run and Nigerians were legitimately done with him.
