The Presidency on Wednesday described the call on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign by Senator Eninaya Abaribe as “foolish”.
The spokesman to the President, Garba Shehu, in a statement said the call did not represent the opinion of the country.
Shehu said “President Buhari who is working hard to keep Nigeria out of the harm terrorists had unleashed in the entire Sahel and Sub-Saharan Africa with the support of Nigerians and foreign friends would finish off the terrorists.”
“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 thin air”, the statement said.
Senate Minority Leader, Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, on Wednesday, asked President Buhari to resign because of rising insecurity in the country.
He was interrupted by Senate President Ahmad Lawan who cautioned him against being partisan.
“Because they saw improvement in their lives, they voted APC again in 2019. I don’t want us to be partisan. I will advise against hate speech,” he said.
Lawan, thereafter, asked the lawmakers to contribute to the debate in such a manner that will solve the problem.
