ENYINNAYA Abaribe, a minority leader in the Nigerian Senate, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign immediately due to his inability to curb Boko haram nefarious activities albeit insecurity in the country.
Abaribe made the call on the floor of the Senate causing an uproar on Wednesday, January 29.
The Senate minority, who spoke after Yahaya Abdullahi, senate leader, presented his motion on rising security challenges in the country, noted that the attitude of the president to insecurity in the country surprised him.
According to him, those who live by propaganda will die by propaganda, alluding to government stand that Boko Haram has been defeated.
Abaribe observed that the hard work which ought to be done was not done due to secure the country because of the propaganda, adding that excuses for non-performance is now staring the government in the face.
Citing the recent killings in Niger and Jos by Boko Haram terrorists, the senator said it was and indication that the insurgency war was far from over.
This is why the opposition members in the National Assembly are of the opinion that Buhari should resign from office, he said.
“Nigerians will go to the government and ask the government to resign because they did not elect the chief of staff, the police IG, service chiefs and others. Nigerians voted a government into power. We are going with stones to stone them now because they have failed,” he said.
When the uproar generated by his speech ended, Senator Abdullahi Adamu said Abaribe’s submissions were unnecessary.
On his part, Ahmad Lawan, Senate president, also appealed to his colleagues to be cautious in dealing with the issue.
