After Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe on Wednesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign, following the worsening security state of the country, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to back the call.
Speaking on the floor of the Senate to kick start debate on the Motion entitled, ” Nigerian Security Challenges: Urgent need restructure, review and reorganise the current Security Architecture, Senator Abaribe said that Nigerians are coming with stones to chase out the present government.
Abaribe said: “We did not vote the IG of police, we did not vote the Chief of Staff, or other security chiefs, we voted the government of APC in 2015 and re-elected them in 2019 because they told us they have the key to security.
“Today, the APC government has failed because people are being killed anyhow. If you want to deal with a matter, you first go to the head. We can go to the APC government and ask this government to resign.
“And we want to tell the government that if it does not resign, we shall have no option than to go with stones to pursue it.”
The lawmaker’s comment has gained the support of many Nigerian Twitter users, as they have taken to the platform to call for the resignation of the president.

I expect Buhari and APC to go after Sen Abaribe for giving us valid reasons the president should resign…
However it only makes sense for this #BuhariResign campaign to trend because this is definitely not the Nigeria of our dreams. Worsening insecurity, poverty etc !

Lest we forget:
Buhari's admin has recorded an All time high level of inflation, nepotism, insecurity, Min. wage reduction & increase in no of unemployed.
Yet the, Garba Shehu thinks Senator Abaribe's call for #BuhariResign is foolish.
May we never be blinded by self interest.
