The Senate minority leader condemned the president and his party for failing to protect lives of its citizens and remind them of their campaign promises.
Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately resign because he has failed to surmount the security challenges in the country.
He insisted that Buhari and the APC had told Nigerians to stone them if they fail and that “it is now time to pick stones to stone them” in view of their obvious failure.
Abaribe said the Nigerian population voted Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) because they assured the citizenry that they had the key to security. He said the Buhari and APC led administration has failed woefully because instead of securing Iives, it engages in propaganda and cheap politics rather than realistically dealing with the issue of insecurity.
Abaribe stated this on Wednesday while contributing to the motion to urgently restructure, review and organise the current security architecture in the country.
The Senate has stepped down all other legislative activities to discuss insecurity in the country. The lawmakers are concerned that people are being killed unreasonably.
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,” Abaribe stated
