The Presidency on Wednesday described the call by the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe for President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over the alleged security failure in the country as foolish.

The Presidency also said that it was the Senator that was supposed to resign from his position and replace the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Correctional Service for failure to produce the IPOB leader many times in court in line with the bail bond he signed.

Reacting to Senator Abaribe’s call for President Buhari to tender his resignation the Presidency in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu said, the call did not represent the opinion of the country.

It said,  “President Buhari to resign on what basis? Just because some characters think that President Buhari should resign, then they expect him to quit.   That call does not represent the opinion of the country. This is the opinion of an armchair 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.”
