A group of Northern youths, under the aegis of Northern Youth Council of Nigeria, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign following the rise in security challenges in the country.
The group communicated this in a statement signed by its President, Isah Abubakar, at the weekend in Kaduna, stressing that the North has become the epicenter of kidnapping for ransom.
The group lamented that roads are no longer safe for travel as citizens are killed mercilessly on roads constructed with their taxes.
According to the group, “The Northern Youth Council of Nigeria is constrained to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to humbly resign since it was evident that he has run out of idea on how to subdue the terrorists that have taken over significant parts of Sokoto, Katsina, Kebbi, Niger, Zamfara states and the busiest Kaduna-Abuja expressway on one side, and recently, the daring attacks by Boko Haram/ISWAP which has continued unabated.
“It is embarrassing that President Buhari is idly watching the terrorist elements reigning supreme in our country, imposing taxes on his supposed citizens, stopping them, yet he is unperturbed. This is the transparent characteristic of a leader that has run out of steam.
“In the alternative where he fails to eat the humble pie, we wish to call on the National Assembly to expedite action and initiate processes of impeachment against the President. Nigerians will certainly stand with them, which will equally help redeem the damaged reputation of the National Assembly.
“Where the above recommendation fails, Nigerians should do everything possible to defend themselves, we can’t continue to watch anarchy reign supreme over us, while we sit like cowards to be killed. It is better you are arrested and kept in prison for daring to defend yourself and than to be buried in a grave because you didn’t dare to do something. Enough is Enough!” the group added.
