Nigerian singer, Eedris Abdulkareem, has opined that President Muhammadu Buhari is weak mentally and physically.
The controversial rapper was reacting to the president’s performance at a town hall meeting organised by the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) and Daria Media with support from the MacArthur Foundation in Abuja on Wednesday.
Buhari had while responding to a question about the disability bill, called on the press and the elite to monitor the progress of the Disability Bill 2018.
He had said, “I cannot honestly remember the plan being taken to the National Assembly and how much they have done on it and sent it back to the centre.
“It is the same with the Disability Bill. There are so many (bills) with the National Assembly and unfortunately, I expect the elite through the press to keep an eye on the activities of the bills between the executive and National Assembly.
“If the executive sends a bill, they can hardly put it in the budget except it is returned to the National Assembly with their comments and recommendations.”
But, reacting, Eedris on his official Instagram page said that he was surprised Buhari denied that the disability bill has been transmitted to him.
He said, “Fact Check- Buhari is weak mentally and physically. Buhari denied that the disability bill has been transmitted to him. Link one: in October, after Buhari declined assent to the bill, NASS worked to address the concerns he raised.
“The Senate referred the disability bill 2018 back to the conference committee of both chambers of the National Assembly for a review.
“Two: the Centre for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) who have been following this issue closely said the Disability bill was transmitted to President Buhari, on Tuesday, December 18, ”18, by the Clerk of the National Assembly.”
