There are certain things that has been bothering my mind concerning Nigeria, all this while. And I have been seeking the appropriate time, place and institution to channel my questions to. But now I think the time is fully ripe for me to ask these questions and expect answers from the appropriate quarters, before things goos wrong in the face of prevailing circumstances in Nigeria.
Here Are My Questions:
1. Fact: the president is expected to write the national assembly to transfer his powers to the vice president in acting capacity, if he decides to take a leave. Now my number one question is,
> What happens if the President fails to transmit his powers to his vice due to a serious health emergency (let's say "Hearth Attack"), and he's unable to return to the country after a period of six months or more?
2. What happens if the president fails to recover from his sickness after one year(like being in "Coma", "Amnesia" or something of such), or he becomes a vegetable or probably physically paralyzed (stroke, Blind, Deaf, Dumb)??.
3. This is the real question, and I want the Nigerian National Assembly to focus on this particular question. I want to use what is currently on ground in Nigeria to give meaning to this question.
Please, let's not say God forbid or it can't happen, i really want us to critically look into this issues in other to adopt a holistic legislative approach to it.
Let no one say I'm wishing the president, his vice or the nation at large evil; far from that, I'm just a concerned (We cannot afford to allow those we do not trust to hijack power) Nigerian and I want the best for this great Nation.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
