The Nigerian leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, has been called by the Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, to resign, following the high rate of insecurity in Nigeria.
Northern Elders Forum said President Buhari should toe the path of honour and resign for failing to ensure Nigerians’ safety and security.
They made this demand while lamenting that Nigerians’ lives no longer have value/matter under President Buhari’s administration.
Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the Forum, also faulted the response of President Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, to Boko Haram’s killing of rice farmers in Borno State.
Baba-Ahmed, in a statement, described Sani’s remark as ‘most insensitive.’
Here is his statement: “Northern Elders Forum (NEF) joins Nigerians in expressing outrage at the killings of farmers in Borno State and many other people daily in many parts of the North. Our voices have been raised without pause for a long time against pervasive insecurity in our region.
“These particular killings have been greeted by the most insensitive response by spokespersons of the President. The lame excuse that farmers had not sought permission from the military to harvest produce merely exposed the misleading claims that our military had secured vast territories from the insurgency.
“Under this administration, life has lost its value, and more and more citizens are coming under the influence of criminals. We do not see any evidence of a willingness on the part of President Buhari to honour his oath to provide security for Nigerians.
“In civilized nations, leaders who fail so spectacularly to provide security will do the honourable thing and resign.”
