The youth wing of the All Progressives Congress, APC has slammed the former interim chairman of the party Chief Bisi Akande over his recent ‘crude’ statement on the health of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The group said people like Akande should be taken for psychiatric test because a sane human being would never joke with health of a sitting president.

Bisi Akande had in a statement on Monday claimed that some people were "feasting" on President Buhari's poor health.

The APC chieftain admitted that Buhari's illness was gradually taking a toll on the country, adding that history may repeat itself.

Reacting however, the APC youth group in a statement jointly signed by its National President, Gbolahan Badmus and Secretary General, Shodeinde Lukman, lampooned the former party chairman for trying to play politics with the president’s health.

“In one of the latest instances, the founding National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande shamelessly told those who cared to listen to his infamous sermon that the health condition of the president have dovetailed into untold hardship on the citizenry and called for emergency measures to be taken in order to avert a national calamity. We view this as an irresponsible drift.

“With due respect, we wish to state categorically that such careless utterances by a person who is supposed to have known and appreciated the immense energy, vigour, dedication and a whole-hearted commitment President Buhari have injected into the task of rejuvenating our national life, is grossly disappointing. And has actually gone a long way to show how petty our grand parents have become. In order climes, this would have been a time for sober reflection and not a time for some people to take alibi in and unleash their hidden venom and deep rooted hatred against the president,” the group noted.

The APC youth noted that it was glaring that people like Akande is only trying to tear the party apart with his personal interest and ulterior motives.

“This no doubt will come as a rude shock to Chief Akande who has chosen to become an unholy tool in the hands of some few self seeking individuals who have used him to massage their ego.

“In extreme cases, we are also recommending a psychiatric test for persons like Chief Akande and his barefaced litany of co-travellers. Nigeria belongs to all of us and not a particular section or elements who think by talking down on President Buhari, they will achieve cheap political goals not minding that such will not be of any consequence on the rest of us,” the statement added.
