Minority Leader of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign as president with immediate effect over his inability to protect Nigerians.
Speaking during plenary earlier today, as the Senate discussed a motion on the nation’s security challenges and the need to restructure the current security architecture.
Senator Abaribe said the president had failed to tackle the different security challenges in the country, having been elected by Nigerians to so do.
“When I was coming, I saw a newspaper headline of THISDAY, the commander-in-chief expresses shock at the level of violent crime, in other words Mr president was expressing surprise, but, according to our rules – Order 53(13), I will not go into that but I can only say in pidgin English ‘this surprise, surprise me’.
Speaking further, Senator Abaribe called out President Buhari’s spokesperson, Mr Femi Adesina over his uncouth utterances towards the Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN).
“I want to say, Mr President, if you didn’t insist that we will not be partisan I would have called out the presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, who, when the CAN leaders complained about the killings of a priest, he turned around and said CAN was acting like a political party.
Nigeria did not elect the IGP, we did not elect the chief of staff, we did not elect the joint-chiefs or national security adviser. We elected the government of APC in 2015 and re-elected them in 2019. The reason we re-elected them is that they continued to tell us that they had the key to security. The government even said if ‘we don’t perform, stone us’, we are going with the stones to stone them now.
Let me remind you once again that Nigerians voted for APC in 2015 and because they saw improvement in their lives they voted APC again in 2019.
Despite repeated attempts by Senate President Ahmed Lawan and other APC to interrupt the Abia Senator, Senator Abaribe reminded the ruling party that “those who live by propaganda will die by propaganda”.
