The Pan Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, has told President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over his administration’s inability to address the insecurity and economic challenges confronting the country.
The group said this is the best time for President Buhari to resign honourably.
Only at the weekend, the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) had asked Buhari to resign over the inability of his government to address the country’s security challenge.
Speaking during the 95th birthday of the leader of the group and the dedication of a church in honour of Chief Reuben Fasonrati, in Iju/Itaogbolu in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State, the Acting leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, said the Buhari-led government has incapacitated the country and has failed to address the increasing wave of insecurity and the downturn in the economy.
He said the president has failed the people of the country, and there is no better time to leave than now, noting that Buhari’s government can no longer handle the situation.
Adebanjo said: “I have told them that in a better and civilised country, he should have gone long ago. “If he has self-respect, he should have gone because everything has failed.
“What is he presiding over? Is it over corruption, security, education?
“Law and order have broken down in the country for the past three years.
“It is only because Nigerians are over tolerance of despots, that is why he is still there.”
