The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has sympathised with President Buhari over his health condition.

According to Punch, Dayo Adeyeye, the spokesman of the Makarfi led faction of the PDP, said “We sympathise with the President on his health and we pray that God will lay His hands on him.”

Adeyeye also said that for Buhari to miss the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday, May 4, 2017, it shows that he is critically ill.

The PDP spokesman also alleged that the country is now being run by a cabal.

Adeyeye said: "However, it is now certain that the country is now being ruled by a cabal. Members of the cabal are not known.

“Who is in charge of the country now? We don’t know. Nigeria is now on auto pilot. We don’t know who is rocking the country and who exactly is churning out orders or exercising the executive powers of the President anymore.

“This can’t happen in saner climes. We have a President who has not been seen in public for some days and the government is not worried.”
