FORMER Chairman of Legal Aid Council, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, has called on Acting President Goodluck Jonathan to sanctionÂ those, who allegedly used President Umar Musa Yarâ€™Aduaâ€™s absence to hold the nation down for 78 days, saying that it would serve as a deterrent to those who may toe the same line in future.
He also commended the Senate resolution empowering Jonathan to have full presidential powers, even as he lampooned the lawmakers for not acting fast.
Gbagi, called for an audit of approvals in the presidency during the period of power vacuum in Nigeria.
According to him,â€œit is a welcome development. It is unfortunate that President Umar Musa Yarâ€™Adua , before departure, had, at a council meeting, disclosed his intention to hand over to Goodluck on account of ill health.
But I am convinced that the president came to that meeting with that letter to hand over. But my sadness is that in that Federal Executive Council meeting, we had a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Aoandoaka who prevented the president from doing so.â€
