The Presidency has asked the lawmaker representing Abia South constituency, Enyinnaya Abaribe, to explain the basis for his call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Presidency in a statement signed by Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President
Media and Publicity said Abaribe’s opinion and others calling for Buhari’s resignation are of the armchair critics known for making stray comments.
The Presidency further lambasted the lawmaker who signed the bail bond of the leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB), Nnamdi Kanu, who escaped from the country after being granted bail on treason allegation, saying he should be the one to first resign as a lawmaker.
“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 quit, 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 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.”
The Presidency further stated that Abaribe should have replaced the suspect he failed to produce in the correctional facility, adding that his party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) allegedly raped the nation and left it collapsing in 2015.
IUt also said that 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.”
