Nigerian civil society activists are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to take long-term medical leave, adding to mounting pressure on the 74-year-old over his health.
The ailing head of state spent two months in London earlier this year, officially on vacation and to have routine medical tests for an undisclosed illness.
Muhammadu Buhari maintains he’s been working from home since returning from London in early March.
He’s missed two out of the last three cabinet meetings, and failed to attend his grandson’s wedding last Saturday.
Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka says Buhari’s supposed to understand he’s public property.
The health of Nigeria’s president has been a sensitive issue since the death in office in 2010 of Umaru Yar’Adua, which saw months of political turmoil.
