Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, the Senate Minority Leader, has urged the President of federal republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari to resign as president following the uncontrollable level of insecurity in the nation.
Senator Abaribe made the call on Wednesday January 29 2020, during the the Senate discussion and motion on the national security challenges and urgent need to restructure the country’s security system.
He blamed the President for being a failure in tackling the security challenges as the Commander in chief of the Armed forces.
The senator wondered why the president will claim to be surprised at the rising insecurity in the country.
He also called out the presidential media aide, for referring to the Christian Association of Nigeria as a political party for condemning killings by Boko Haram.
“…If you want to treat an issue, you go to the head. We did not appoint the IG or the security chiefs. We will go to the president and ask him to resign,” the lawmaker said.
Enyinnaya Abaribe in his contribution said, President Muhammadu Buhari has been lying to Nigerians that Boko Haram has been defeated.
“Those who live on propaganda shall die by propaganda.
“Defeat is staring us on the face.
However, the Senate Minority Leader, was stopped by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, who said he should focused on the motion being raised.
“Nigerians voted APC because they promised to tackle insecurity but they have failed…,” Mr Abaribe, a member of the opposition PDP, continued.
For the second time, Mr Lawan and cautioned him said he was partisan.
Nasarawa senator, Abdullahi Adamu, also stood up to condemn Mr Abaribe’s comments and demanded that he withdraw them.
It should be noted that the lawmakers have set aside the platform to discuss security challenges in the country that have seen attacks by Boko Haram, kidnappers and so-called “bandits” increase, especially in the northern part of the country.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, raised alarm on the increasing security challenges in the country.
