Presidency has berated call for President Buhari to resign over his failure to tackle insecurity and other sundry economic challenges facing the country.
A statement made available to State House Correspondents in ABUJA, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, described the call as ” foolish”
Presidency while rejecting Abaribe’s call which was made on the floor of the Senate, boasted that only Buhari can tackle the nation’s security challenged ” He alone can do it.”
” 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 arm chair 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.”
Shehu lampooned Abaribe for signing the bond for the court to release Nnamdi Kanu on bail, only for 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.
Shehu insists that 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, adding that ” he is going to finish off these terrorists. He alone can do it.”
