Presidency: Remove Constitutional Impediments
The essential ingredient of any democratic process is the presence of an executive president, who the people routinely elected as a mark of their mandate for his/her governance.
Since November 23, 2009, President Umaru YarAdua left the shores of Nigeria in search of appropriate medical attention in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It is true that the Islamic Republic has more modern, technically superior and reliable medical facilities and personnel.
What is of interest here is not the high-brow medicaments and medics of the Saudis. It is the very long absence of our President from duty without properly notifying the citizens, and the attendant power vacuum created in the statecraft of the country.Click here to download PDF of: Legislative Digest Jan 2010
