News Release: Request For Medical Examination Of Governor Aregbesola For Insanity Is Constitutional

 Rauf Aregbesola
On the 16th day of March 2012, we caused a letter to be written on our behalf by our Executive Director, Barr. Kayode Ajulo to the Personal Physician of His Excellency Rauf Aregbesola, the Governor of Osun State.

The letter under reference duly authorized by the resolution of the Board of Trustees of Egalitarian Mission, Africa is one of our numerous interventions in Africa towards achieving our mandate which in summary is to promote good governance, principles of equality, adherence to the rule of law and all the tenets of democracy as well as peaceful co-existence in Africa.

It should be noted that our request is not unconnected with vituperative utterances and ostensibly uneasy, higgledy-piggledy, hoarse, rambling, irrational actions of H. E. Rauf Aregbesola, which has become more manifest since his ascendancy as Governor of Osun State and of which H. E. Rauf Aregbesola wittingly and unwittingly has exhibited clear symptoms of insanity.

As expected, our Executive Director has been visited with some obviously sponsored attacks against the Missions committed and permissible request.

While we refuse to join issue with these paid agents, we wish to reiterate that our request has basis in the sacred provision of our Constitution as Section 189 (1) (b) of the Constitution as amended provides for medical examination as may be necessary.

It is our trust that the wellbeing of the government and good people of Osun State presently lies on the shoulder of H. E. Rauf Aregbesola who must not only be fit and proper to carry the duties and responsibilities of office of the Governor of Osun State with excellent level of sanity and good judgment.

It is therefore expected that having put his state of mind into question by his actions and omissions which run contrary to the accepted behaviour of the person of his office, his Personal Physician needs to conduct medical examination on H. E. Rauf Aregbesola, a public officer, to ascertain his state of health and accede to our request.

In view of the above, we still maintain that our request is legal, permissible and constitutional, bearing in mind the provision of Section 182 (1) (c), 189 (1) (b) and section 2 (2) of Freedom of Information Act 2011 LFN for the reason that the sanity of our leaders must be evidently determined, particularly when such leaders have put their sanity into question by their act and/or omission.

We reinforce once again, our determination, having being compelled in the spirit of respect for Section 189 of the Constitution as we refused to be distracted, intimidated, and blackmailed.

We are resolute in our undertakings as we hold it to be true that Osun state, Nigeria and well as the entire Africa community must be governed in accordance with the Law.

Thank you,

For: Egalitarian Mission Africa
