The former governor made this known when he spoke with BBC Hausa.
He lamented over the killing of farmers by members of Boko Haram sect in Borno state.
He expressed that something is wrong somewhere, thus advising the president to “drop his arrogance” and seek forgiveness for the alleged offences he has committed.
“There is no way a government can go successfully without sabotage but you need to be strong enough to overcome such challenges. If really, he cannot withstand this he has to resign, but we can’t be accepting sabotage as a reason,” he said.
“He has failed totally. If not that he has failed, how will you allow some people to slaughter 43 people? How will you allow bandits to raid villages and set them on fire and rape their women? Definitely, something is wrong somewhere.
“Allah is merciful to his servants, we hope our prayers will be answered, but Buhari has to go first. He should ask himself what offences has he committed. He needs to wake up at midnight, drop his arrogance and pray. He should ask for Allah’s forgiveness for the offenses he has committed.
“He is arrogant and always speaking with pride. Many people have said it and we have seen it. Four years ago, if you had said something like this, you would have been abused but now the truth has come.”
He also accused Buhari of not listening to the cries of the people, adding that Nigerians are tired of the insecurity.
