President Muhammadu Buhari has told Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe that he was on his own as his calls for the resignation of president Muhammadu Buhari did not reflect the yearnings of Nigerians.
Abaribe, who is the senate minority leader and one of the vocal leaders of the major opposition party, (PDP) has during Wednesday’s plenary asked the president to resign over his failure to address the social insecurity ravaging the country.
However, in a quick riposte the presidency has in a statement through Garba Shehu, a presidential spokesman said the call by the senator only represents his whimsical desire.
The statement said the president can’t resign just because some characters think he should 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,” he said.
