The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, on Tuesday asked the President, Muhammadu Buhari to resign for failing to provide security in the country.
The forum which made the demand in a statement by its spokesperson, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, said it was disappointing that after nearly seven years of being in office, Buhari still has no answers to security challenges across the country.
According to NEF, Nigeria 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.
The Elders Forum noted that the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has provisions for leaders to voluntarily step down if they are challenged by personal reasons or they prove incapable of leading, saying it is now time for President Buhari to seriously consider that option, since his leadership has proved spectacularly incapable of providing security over Nigerians.
