Acording to reports, President Muhammad Buhari has promised to resign if he does not recover from his illness.
According to Independent, a close source said the president health has improved for the last three weeks but he told his close aides that if he will resign if he does not get better.
He, however, failed to disclose the specific date or month given by the president.
He added that contrary to the views by many, the president is not desperate to cling on to power but he is being advised by doctors to continue with the treatment while Acting President Yemi Osinbajo presides over the affairs of the nation.
He also confirmed that though some aides of the president tried to bypass the acting president in order to get to the president, the president directed them to relate with the acting president who is presently in charge of the affairs of the nation.
The source said;
“The president is not desperate to cling on to power if his health cannot carry him. I can tell you authoritatively that he has given a timeline that if he doesn’t recover fully on a specific date, he will file in his resignation letter and if you know President Buhari very well, he meant what he said.
“That is why Nigerians who love the president and his efforts in restoring Nigeria’s lost glory should continue to pray for his quick recovery. It will be to our disservice if he dies as some people are wishing him”,
Another source said;
The president wanted to transmit a letter of resignation but a retired General from Taraba prevailed on him not to do so.
