‘Buhari feels no empathy’- Northern Elders Forum ask Buhari to resign
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Northern Elders Forum, (NEF) has said President Muhammadu Buhari has no empathy and has failed to recognise that Nigerians are scared and dying.
Spokesman of the group, Hakeem Baba Ahmed while speaking with Channels Tv over the increasing rate of insecurity in Nigeria, said the Presidency keeps telling Nigerians to pray but has failed to do anything serious about the killings in the country especially in the North.
“I feel sorry for the president, if he does not do anything and we just hear excuses then we are in serious trouble.
“The Presidency does not feel empathy. We don’t see a presidency who recognises the fact that we have serious problems but all we hear is we should pray,” he said.
“We are praying that God shows Buhari the way to fix the country. As northerners we are dying and Southerners are being killed’’.
Ahmed who rhetorically asked “How many have to die before Buhari do something serious?” added that “Buhari needs to do something serious, we measure him by just one thing and that is ‘What is the outcome of your commitment’ the country has become so dangerous to live in”.
However, NEF also called for the resignation of President Buhari, Daily post reported.
The forum insisted that Buhari, despite his military background, has failed to protect Nigerians and therefore, needs to resign as the President.
“There is no indication that Buhari is planning to improve, he failed to protect citizens. Buhari has no excuse, we have given him a chance but five years now since he became president and assumed responsibility, things have gotten worse’’.
“Two years before he became president, he told Jonathan to step aside and now there’s no security under his administration. Life has lost value in Nigeria, NEF said.
