The Northern Elders Forum has demanded the Immediate dismiss of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement made available to POLITICS NIGERIA on Tuesday, signed by its media chief, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the Northern Elders Forum called for the president’s resignation over the heavy insecurity in the country.
“The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari does not appear to have answers to the challenges of security to which we are exposed. We cannot continue to live and die under the dictates of killers, kidnappers, rapists and sundry criminal groups that have deprived us of our rights to live in peace and security.”
“Our constitution has provisions for leaders to voluntarily step down if they are challenged by personal reasons or they prove incapable of leading.”
“It is now time for President Buhari to seriously consider that option, since his leadership has proved spectacularly incapable of providing security over Nigerians. Our Forum is aware of the weight of this advice, and it is also aware that we cannot continue to live under these conditions until 2023 when President Buhari’s term ends,”.
The group lamented over the incessant killings and attacks going on in the country on a daily basis.
“Killers and other criminals appear to have sensed a paralyzing vacuum at the highest levels of leadership, and they grow more confident and acquire more competence in subverting the State and our security. Nigerians have shed enough tears and blood without appropriate response from those with responsibilities to protect us.”
The Forum advised Nigerians to exercise great levels of discretion in choosing their leaders in upcoming elections as the nation currently needs good leaders to place it on the path of rediscovery.
