Image result for Civil Society leaders urge Buhari to take medical leaveCivil society leaders have urged Nigeria’s ailing President Muhammadu Buhari, to take medical leave immediately.

Earlier this year the president had spent nearly two months of medical vacation in Britain.

The 74-year-old president returned home in March and said he would need more rest and health tests.

In a letter titled “President Buhari should take medical leave immediately”, a group of political activists noted his absence from the last two weekly cabinet meetings and speculation about his ability to run the nation’s economy is raising concerns.

The letter was signed by 13 civil society leaders including human rights lawyer Femi Falana and Jibrin Ibrahim.
