Buhari Must Go, He Has Dementia, Unable To Handle His Own Affairs — Dr Junaid Mohammed |The Republican News

Dr Junaid Mohammed

By Kelvin Jaja

A former Nigerian lawmaker in the Second Republic and elder statesman, Dr Junaid Mohammed, has said President Muhammadu Buhari should resign because he cannot handle his own affairs, not to talk of handling the affairs of 200 million people.

Mohammed told SaharaReporters that President Buhari is not physically and mentally fit to lead a country like Nigeria.

He accused the President’s aides and associates of stage-managing his health status and failing to open up to Nigerians the actual state of his health.

Speaking with SaharaReporters on insecurity in the country, he said, “Being the President of the country, he doesn’t have a private right to mislead the people of this country. If he is sick, the people of Nigeria are entitled to know. If he is unable to perform his duties as elected President, then the people have to know.

“And in knowing, Nigerians will have to be guided by what the constitution says about the state of a President who is entirely infirm, who is unable to perform the duties of a President.

“Five years after my statement and public altercation with the Presidency, it’s now clear that the man is sick, he is not only physically ill; he is also mentally sick. He is completely mentally infirm. He is in no position to handle his affairs not to talk of handling the affairs of 200 million people. Clearly, his handlers know he is not in control of the state. He is not even in control of his family affairs.

“So, it’s now left for Nigerians, especially those of you who are young, to now determine what needs to be done. This is because we can’t allow someone who is completely infirm, someone who is diagnosed with dementia. There is no difference between him and someone mad, someone who has completely lost his senses.

“If Nigerians decide to keep quiet out of consideration for either religion or tribe to allow this man to continue messing up this country and making us an international disgrace, then Nigerians shouldn’t complain. But as far as I’m concerned, the man has outlived his usefulness. It should be only right that he should be asked to go.”

Some Health Benefits Of Oily Fish You Do Not Know |The Republican News

                                       Oily fish

Oily fish is rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation and potentially lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Both white and oily fish are good sources of lean protein. White fish contains fatty acids, but only in the liver, and in smaller quantities.

Cardiovascular disease

Consuming oily fish can help protect against cardiovascular disease, according to the AHA. A study published by the American Physiological Society suggests that fatty fish oils can also protect the heart during times of mental stress.

Rheumatoid arthritis

A study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases journallinked an average daily intake of at least 0.21 grams (or 210 milligrams) a day of omega-3 with a 52 per cent lower risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Other research suggests that omega-3 fatty acids might protect against the future development of RA.

Dementia

Among people who abuse alcohol, fish oil may offer protection from dementia. Brain cells that were exposed to a mix of fish oil and alcohol had 95 percent less neuroinflammation and neuronal death compared with brain cells that were only exposed to alcohol.

Mouth and skin cancers

Oily fish consumption may protect against early- and late-stage oral and skin cancers. Omega-3 fatty acid has been found to target and selectively inhibit the growth of malignant and pre-malignant cells at doses that do not affect the normal cells.

Sensory, cognitive, and motor development

Consuming oily fish during the last months of pregnancy can have positive effects on a child’s sensory, cognitive, and motor development, research suggests. The same study did not find that breast-feeding offered the same benefits.

Asthma

The children of women who regularly consumed salmon during pregnancy may be less likely to show signs of asthma at the age of 2.5.

Protecting vision and memory

DHA can protect against vision loss. Scientists have identified a link between oily fish consumption and a lower risk of vision loss in older people. A study published in PLOS One indicates that eating oily fish may improve working memory.

Breast and prostate cancer

One meta-analysis of nearly 900,000 women has linked a higher consumption of oily fish with a lower risk of breast cancer. However, another team found that men with high quantities of omega-3 oil in their blood had a higher risk of prostate cancer.

Many people take fish oil supplements for health reasons. Learn more about fish oils and their benefits here.

Although eating oily fish promotes many aspects of good health, overconsumption may not be beneficial. A recent study found a risk of premature death in people with both high and low levels of HDL, raising the question of whether more HDL is always better.

Also, high levels of HDL can be harmful for people who are undergoing dialysis, because it can increase levels of inflammation.
