Support for/Joining of Falana's Constitutional Suit Against Attorney-General in Connection with President Yar'Adua's Medical Absence from Nigeria sign now

We the undersigned Nigerian citizens living in Nigeria and abroad support and wish to be joined in Mr. Femi Falana's Suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/732/09 of December 15, 2009 against the Attorney-General of Nigeria seeking clarifications about:

1) Whether the refusal or failure of the President to transmit a written declaration to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives before proceeding on medical vacation on or before November 23, 2009 is not a violation of S. 145 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.

2) Whether the Vice President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan can discharge any of the functions of the President when a written declaration has not been transmitted to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives by President Umaru Musa Yaradua pursuant to Section 145 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.

3) Whether the weekly meetings of the Federal Executive Council held since November 23, 2009 and the decisions taken thereat are not illegal and unconstitutional by virtue of Section 148 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.


While we wish President Yar'Adua speedy recovery from his current poor health condition being treated in Saudi Arabia - and without trying to pre-empt the ruling of the courts - we firmly believe that Nigeria deserves full constitutional governance at this time, and therefore requires orderly transfer of full powers to an "Acting President" without further delay under action from the Federal Executive Council and the National Assembly.
