Pressure Mounts On Buhari To Resign
The Senator representing Abia-South Senatorial District of Abia State while contributing to a debate on the current state of Nigeria’s security the floor of the Senate, claimed that the Buhari-led administration and the All Progressives Congress has failed Nigerians.
The lawmaker made his position known while contributing to a motion sponsored by the Senate leader, Yahaya Abdullahi on national security.
Following the call, the Presidency has swiftly replied the Senator in a statement on Wednesday night, through the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Buhari, Garba Shehu, who noted that if anyone was to resign it would be Senator Abaribe.
The presidency said the position adopted by Abaribe does not represent the view of Nigerians.
However, more Nigerians have now taken to Twitter to air their views on the call for Buhari’s resignation as well as the tenure of the nation’s security chiefs vis-a-viz the war against Boko Haram insurgents and other terrorists.
See some of their views:
If you can’t find solutions to bandits, Boko Haram attacks it is better to resign. President Buhari should resign if he cannot fight insecurity which is one of what he swore over and undertook as the C-in-C… After all he once called on GEJ to resign to #BuhariResign pic.twitter.com/HLAI83LYip

The question we are supposed to be asking is,where should we gather to stone them,the APC people.
Before he became President,we were only battling Boko Haram.
Years after, under his nose,we now have BH,ISWAP,Bandits,cattle rustlers.

The government of the day should learn how to take responsibility at all times. They should be made to resign when they no longer have the clue to solving our problems https://t.co/R3Tp9zDXQG

Buhari’s incompetence is evident in every sector. He has shown that he lacks the capacity to lead and even worse as a follower.

Senator Abaribe called for #BuhariResign as a bitter minority leader, he’s just doing his job… i bet he doesn’t even know the nation is at WAR!
What was the thorough investments in our military/police force pre 2015?
What we’re reaping today is a sowing of many years! pic.twitter.com/PGlGMENzTX
