Femi Fani Kayode, former Minister of Aviation on Saturday said President Muhammadu Buhari is suffering from dementia. He said this in reaction to the appointment of deceased Francis Okpozo as chairman of Nigerian Press Council. Buhari yesterday appointed 209 chairmen and 1258 members to fill the board positions. It would be recalled that Senator Okpozo died in 2016 at the age of 81.
Until his death, the Second Republic senator was member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Fani-Kayode in his tweets said Buhari’s age is taking a toll on him. He wrote :“First you forgot your own age. Then you appoint an 81 year old who drawls, who can barely walk and who wears clothes from the 1940’s as our Ambassador to the U.S.A. Now you appoint a dead man, Sen. Francis Okpozo, as Chairman of the Press Council. Your dementia has gone viral.”
