The Presidency has reacted to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe’s call for President Buhari to resign over the insecurity witnessed across the nation.
The Abia-born Senator who made the call during the senate’s plenary on Wednesday January 29, stated that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) were voted in because they promised to tackle insecurity across the country. He said he was “surprised” with President Buhari’s recent expression of suprise over the rising insecurity in the country. He added that President Buhari resigning, is the right thing to do since he reportedly failed to tackle insecurity.
Reacting to the call for President Buhari’s resignation, the Presidency described it as “foolishness” on the part of the Senator who should have replaced the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu in a correctional facility.
Abaribe was also tagged an “arm chair critic” who failed repeated deadlines to return Kanu to the court for trial.
In the statement released on behalf of President Buhari by his media aide Garba Shehu, the presidency stated that the Nigerian leader is working hard to keep Nigeria and Nigerians out of the harm terrorists have unleashed in the entire Sahel and Sub-Saharan Africa.
The statement read;
SENATOR ABARIBE’S CALL ON PRESIDENT BUHARI TO RESIGN IS FOOLISH
President Buhari to resign on what basis? Just because some characters think that President Buhari should resign, then they expect him to quit. That call does not represent the opinion of the country.
This is the opinion of an arm chair critic, known for making stray comments. If a leader like President Buhari needs to resign, there are millions of other Nigerians who need to resign, including Senator Abaribe who unlocked the door to enable the escape of traitorous and treasonable suspects.
He signed the bond for the court to release Nnamdi Kanu on bail, from which moment the suspect disappeared into the thin air.
Senator Abaribe has failed repeated deadlines to return Kanu to the court for trial, yet he has the effrontery with which to accuse someone of failing to the bidding of the law.
This is a man who should have replaced the suspects he failed to produce in the correctional facility. Abaribe’s party raped the nation and left it collapsing in 2015 and President Buhari is fixing things up all the years he is in office.
President Buhari is working hard to keep Nigeria and Nigerians out of the harm terrorists have unleashed in the entire Sahel and Sub-Saharan Africa with the support of Nigerians and our foreign friends, he is going to finish off these terrorists. He alone can do it.
