The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to work from home.
Buhari yesterday did not attend the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting for a third time in a row and Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed while giving an explanation for his absence, said the President will now be working from home.
The PDP through the Spokesman for the party’s National Caretaker Committee, Prince Dayo Adeyeye in its response has said Buhari was elected into office and therefore cannot work from behind the curtains, adding the FEC was statutory and he must preside over it.
He said, “We have passed a stage whereby you dish out lies to Nigerians on a daily basis about the health status of the President.
“We had such and similar experience during the days of the late former President Umaru Yar’Adua, when his health status was being manipulated by a cabal within the Presidency. We should be allowed to forget that era.
“President Buhari is human like any other person and is liable to fall sick as well.
“But he was elected to a public office and he is occupying a public office. He cannot therefore claim to be working behind the curtains.
“He is not allowed to work secretly because he was not elected to work secretly. FEC is statutory and he must preside over it.”
