She said no amount of force can make the president step out of the country until when his doctors say it is all right to do so.

Onochie tweeted the information in reaction to the live interview of Adetokunbo Mumuni, the executive director of Socio-Economic Right Accountability Project (SERAP) on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily.

She wondered why Mumuni was speaking authoritatively over the president’s health when he was not close to the presidency.

Onochie said since the First Lady Aisha Buhari had spoken about her husband’s health as being much better than widely reported, then Nigerians should believe that.

She tweeted:

She concluded that the President has been working contrary to widespread reports that he was at home unable to move.
