Insecurity in Nigeria as Northern Elders tells Buhari to resign.

The Northern Elders Forum has on Wednesday asked the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to resign.

According to the group, the President has failed in the two critical areas of security and economy and as such has ‘nothing new to offer’ Nigerians.

NEF Spokesman, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, stated this Wednesday.

He said it is disappointing that after over five years of being in office, Buhari still hasn’t delivered on the promises he made to Nigerians when he was first elected in 2015.

He said, “We will continue to ask that he (Buhari) resigns. He is a democratically elected president.

The northern elders wish he is doing better but he is not. Ordinarily, under a democratic system, a leader is supposed to deliver, he is supposed to do two things – he is supposed to secure citizens and he is supposed to facilitate their economic welfare.

He (Buhari) hasn’t done the first and he is not doing the second. So, explain to me on what basis President Buhari should continue to be our president?

“However, it is his right to continue to be the president even if Nigerians are unhappy and unsatisfied with what he is doing, that is his right but we will not keep quiet; we will continue to speak up that he has failed Nigerians, he is failing Nigerians and under a democratic setting, we have to raise our voices and say, ‘Mr President, you are just not good enough for this country’. That is just the simple truth.

“We have respected the President, we understand the difficulty he is facing and we understand how difficult it is to tell him to resign but we also have the democratic right to tell him, ‘Sorry sir, you cannot run this country, you have been given five, six years to do so and the situation is just getting worse and we believe that you have nothing new to offer and the only way is for you to resign’.

We believe we are speaking for millions of Nigerians.”
