Call For Buhari’s Resignation A Call To Do Better: Keyamo

Festus Keyamo

Festus Keyamo, minister of state for labor and employment, says the call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari is a way of asking him to do better.

Senate minority leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe had asked Buhari to resign after the president’s statement in which he expressed surprise over the state of security in the country.

Abaribe said Buhari’s government “can no longer do anything” about the situation, a statement that stirred reactions among Nigerians who also demanded that the president resigns.

Speaking via twitter, Keyamo said it was normal for the opposition to ask the president to resign, but said there’s no way the president would actually resign.

Buhari had also asked ex-President Goodluck Jonathan to resign in 2013 over insecurity.

Keyamo, who was the spokesman of Buhari’s 2019 presidential campaign organisation, said, “The hullabaloo over the call by the opposition for the resignation of the President is unnecessary. It’s the usual singsong of opposition all over the world. ”

“They know it’s not going to happen. It’s just a way of telling govt to do more and we in govt should see it in that light.”
