I got this in my mail and my first reaction was that of amusement but clearly the E.M.A group that prepared this doesn't think so. They are taking this issue serious and so shall you read and draw your own conclusions. Wink.. so, here we go..
Without Prejudice, this letter by E.M.A is a simple request and by our antecedents it is devoid of politics as we hold it to be a true evidence that nothing stops any individual or group to make such demands on a public officer be it Goodluck Jonathan, Raji Fashola, Godswill Akpabio, Olusegun Mimiko and even Barrack Obama once any of them exhibits any symptom of Insanity.. Eew!!!*

16th March, 2012The Personal Physician of the Governor of Osun State,
Osun State Government House Clinic
REQUEST FOR MEDICAL REPORTS OF H. E. RAUF AREGBESOLA (THE GOVERNOR OF OSUN STATE) FROM 27TH NOV. 2010 - DATE
We hereby in pursuant to the provision of Section 2 (2) of Freedom of Information Act 2011 LFN request for Medical Report of the Governor of Osun State, His Excellency, Rauf Aregbesola from 27th November 2010 till date.
We are non-profit making organisation established to maintain and promote good governance, equal opportunities, rule of law and sustenance of democracy in Africa; we are as such incorporated in
Nigeria’s corpus juris under the name and style, The Incorporated Trustees of Egalitarian Mission, Africa.
In ensuring good governance, accountability and adherence to the rule of law among other constituted missions, we are not unaware of vituperative utterances and ostensibly apprehensive, disordered, abrasive, delirious, alienated actions of H. E. Rauf Aregbesola, which has became more manifest since his ascendancy as Governor of Osun State.
As part of our mandate, we are concerned and felt compelled in the spirit of respect for the Nigerian Constitutional provisions, particularly, Section 182(1) (c) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) disqualifying any person who has been adjudged a lunatic or declared to be of unsound mind from holding the exalted office in any State in Nigeria.
Sequel to the swearing-in of H. E. Rauf Aregbesola on 27th November, 2010 as Osun State Governor, the following instances of the actions of the Governor call to question the required level of sanity and good judgment expected of the holder of such an exalted office:
1.On 20th February, 2011 H. E. Rauf Aregbesola at a book launch at Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Abuja threw caution and decorum to the winds to launch an unprovoked attack on the person and office of the President of Nigeria to the embarrassment of dignitaries present, this display of irrational outburst was unabated despite the explanation of the Nigerian Minister of Labour & Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu on the context in which the President used the word; RASCALS.
2.On the 27th October, 2011 at Oshogbo, H. E. Rauf Aregbesola once again threw decorum to the winds and displayed want of good judgment and reason and use one of his subordinates to attack and disparage the person of the Vice President of Nigeria, Arch. Namadi Sambo at the opening of Federal High Court Complex.
3.On 7th March 2012, H. E. Rauf Aregbesola despite concerted attempts to call him to order by H. E. Kayode Fayemi, H. E. Ibikunle Amosun, Gen. Alani Akinrinade, Rt. Hon. Dimeji Bankole, Dr. Federick Fasehun, Mr. Fola Adeola, and other eminent Yoruba leaders in attendance, launched a worst form of attack which is out of control and want of reason, against a colleague Governor from the same zone.
4.That H. E. Rauf Aregbesola, by several reports or/and on several occasions displayed irascible, quick-tempered and impetuous actions at several fora including, during the esteemed National Executive Council’s meetings at Aso Villa, Abuja which by implication may lead to untoward consequence in Nigeria.
It is our independent opinion that these actions of the Governor run contrary to the acceptable behavior of the person of his office particularly when viewed against the background of the Yoruba nation where the notion of Omoluabi is held in high esteem.
It is in view of the above and being conscious of the provisions of Section 2(2) of the Nigerian’s Freedom of Information Act, that we demand for the certified true copy of the medical report of His Excellency between the period specified for the purpose of giving consideration to the provision of Section 182 (1) (c) and Section 189 of the 1999 Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).
Please note that failure to furnish us with the above report within 7 (seven) days, shall compel us to embark on any approach permissible under Nigerian’s law, including approaching the court to compel you to do same.
We believe that you shall give this request the prompt attention it requires.
Accept, please, our warmest regards.
