Secondus calls for Buhari’s resignation over comment on insecurity

Yusuf Bello| The National Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, on Saturday called for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over a comment he made on Thursday on the security situation in the country.

The President it would be recalled while receiving the freed Karanka schoolboys abducted from their dormitory last Friday, said that security chiefs were not doing enough to end insecurity in the country.

Reacting to Buhari’s comment, Secondu’s in a statement by his spokesman, Ike Abonyi, asked Buhari to “do the honourable thing and resign,” arguing that his comment was an admission of failure of his administration to tackle insecurity in the country.

Secondus said, “I find it extremely unacceptable that after the President disregarded all wise counsels to rejig the nation’s security architecture for effectiveness, he is now turning round to admit their failure and blame operatives whom he kept even in their apparent inefficiency.

“As the buck stops on the table of the Commander-in-Chief, the President should accept his failure and stop looking for excuses.

According to Secondus to call has become necessary given that Buhari as opposition candidate in 2013 had asked the then President Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP to resign, saying “Jonathan should vacate and give way to a competent hand to govern the country.”
