As a result of the various crisis confronting Nigeria, ranging from Aso Rock shooting, Boko Haram invasion of Kastina state and controversy surrounding the Acting National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), the former National Chairman of the National Action Council (NAC), Dr Olapade Agoro on Monday advised President Mohammed Buhari to resign.
It could be recalled that recently there was a misunderstanding between the wife of the President Aisha Buhari and some security personnel at Aso Rock resulted in gun shots within the villa.
Also the invasion of dreaded Boko Haram of home town of the Buhari and the ongoing crisis within the APC.
Agoro, who was also the Presidential candidate of the NAC in 2003 and 2007 presidential election said the body language of President Buhari is posing a threat to the national security and the national unity.
While speaking with Journalists at the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Secretariat, Iyaganku on Monday evening, the NAC national chairman and presidential candidate said the recent happening in the country is disheartening.
He maintained that the recent attacks on the personality of the wife of the president is worrisome and disturbing, noting that the recent invasion of Kastina state by dreaded Boko Haram is also call for concern.
Agoro also expressed dismay over continuous silent of the President Buhari on the ongoing crisis within the APC nationally, Edo and Ondo states portend poor leadership on the part of the President.
According to him, “the only wife that was sworn in with the president, Aisha Buhari was almost killed and nothing happens. Why will Mr. President equate his wife with Tunde Yusuf? Buhari opens his eyes and allowed his wife to be rubbished. There was a gun shot at the villa which tells us that somebody was after the life of Mr President. It should be a thing of concern to us.
“After that was subsided, Boko Haram unleashed terror on the state of Mr. President to the extent that he cannot visits his home town. Buhari is not alive to his responsibilities. This is not good for Nigeria at this time. It should be a thing of concern to Nigerians that Mr. President allows political party that brought him to office collapsing. The party is now in disarray.
“So, if the Mr. President cannot control his house, how do we expect him to control the whole country? On that of the Ondo and Edo political saga, I hate politics without decorum. If President cannot put his house in order, then he should resign.”
Agoro urged Nigerians to be mindful of the sacrifice made by those that fought for democracy such as chief MKO Abiola, Adekule Ajasin, Abraham Adesaya among other leaders.
