A call has gone out from a section of Northern youths in the country for President Muhammadu Buhari to resign his position as the leader of the nation immediately.
The youths, under the aegis of the Northern Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) based their call on the challenges of insecurity ravaging the country which they say the President and his administration have been unable to fix.
They lamented that terrorists, bandits, insurgents, and other forms of criminals have taken over several parts of the country particularly the north, inflicting pain and hardship on the people and residents of Nigeria.
The group in a statement on Friday issued by its President, Isah Abubakar said the north has become the epicentre of criminal activities and the government seems helpless in tackling the situation.
While urging Buhari to resign as the president of Nigeria, the youths urged the National Assembly to initiate impeachment proceedings against him if he refuses to resign humbly.
According to them, “The security challenges has engulfed our country, most especially Northern Nigeria which is now the epicentre of kidnapping-for-ransom, blood bath and lately abattoir where humans are roasted alive for the crime of daring travelling on roads that were constructed from the taxes they paid to the government.”
They added that “It is embarrassing that President Muhammadu 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 a clear characteristic of a leader that has run out of steam.
“The Northern Youth Council of Nigeria is a constraint to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to humbly resign since it is obvious 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 moves attacks by Boko Haram/ISWAP which has continued unabated.
“We can’t continue to watch anarchists reign supreme over us, while we seat 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!”
