Northern Elders Forum (NEF) Demands Buhari Resignation Over Inscurity In Nigeria

The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to “seriously consider” resigning from office over the rising insecurity in the country.⁣

The Director, Publicity and Advocacy of NEF, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, made the call on Tuesday, April 12, 2022.⁣

Baba-Ahmed said there has not been an “appropriate response” from the government over the killings across the country.⁣

“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,” he said⁣

“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,” Baba-Ahmed said.⁣

“Nigerians have shed enough tears and blood without appropriate response from those with responsibilities to protect us.”⁣

Baba-Ahmed added that criminals appear to have grown more confident in their vices, because they have sensed a vacuum at the highest levels of leadership.⁣
