The call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari by the Senate Minority leader, distinguished Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, received a huge thumbs-up from Nigerians. Following that call, many Nigerians took to social media to express their support, praising Abaribe for the guts to stand up to the despot in power.
Senator Abribe’s call for Buhari’s resignation on the floor of the Senate is justifiable, apt, and commendable. Expectantly, government puppets like Garba Shehu, Femi Adesina and a few other misguided northern senators of APC stock are already working hard to change the narrative, maligning the senator for saying the obvious. Shamefully even the Senate President, Mr. Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, who out to be neutral in sensitive issues, was seen trying to shout down the distinguished Senator.
Senator Abdullahi Adamu’s demand that Abaribe withdraws his statement is not only lugubrious, it also suggests the level of mess the Nigerian state is in. it points clear to the fact that this Senate is merely a rubber-stamp Senate.
To say the least, President Buhari has failed woefully in delivering his campaign promises in the past five years and has shown himself insensitive to the hardship and insecurity ravaging the country. He, therefore, should heed the advice of Senator Abaribe and resign honourably. Nigerians and Biafrans alike are solidly behind Abaribe.
