- Lawmakers of the House of Representatives have been accused of working against President Muhammadu Buhari's administration
- The lawmakers are alleged to be working with some forces to take Nigeria back to the dark days
- According to a group, the call for the sack of security chiefs is emanating from individuals and organizations inclined to partisanship and intolerant of the administration of President Buhari
The National Democratic Front (NDF) has accused members of the House of Representatives of working with underground forces to return Nigeria to dark and inglorious era.
NDF while reacting to a motion moved on by the chief whip of the House, Mohammed Tahir, and 14 others on Wednesday, January 29.
The lawmakers had called on the service chiefs to either resign or be sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Addressing newsmen on Thursday, January 30, in Abuja, NDF's national secretary, Abdulkadir Bolaji, said the group is shocked that some of the lawmakers have “wittingly subscribed to this hogwash using a protectively deceptive official cover to push this demonic agenda.”
Bolaji said the call for the sack of security chiefs is amazing, to say the least, clear attempt to pave way for the defeated insurgents to return Nigeria to the era of blood and tears.
The group also advised that the president should be prepared to slam a state of emergency on any state that falters on securing lives and property of the citizenry.
He said that in the last few months, Nigerians have heard and assessed the campaigns for the sack of security chiefs emanating from individuals and organizations inclined to partisanship and intolerant of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Bolaji said: "And they echo same rehearsed reasons in attempts to disparage Nigeria's security leaderships, by projecting biased, irrational and self-serving reasons."
He said it has dawned on Nigerians clearly that the House of Representatives' members is scheming with underground forces to return back to the dark and inglorious era when external forces reportedly bribed members of NASS to arm-twist the president.
He warned that it is foolhardy to call for the resignation of the president and sacking of security chiefs, while silent on states governors, where the renewed incidents of attacks and killings occur.
Bolaji said some of these governors who are the chief security officers of their states and collect monthly security votes do not devote it to solving emerging security issues.
He said that shows the bias and malice in the parliamentarians against President Buhari.
"As President Buhari is the chief security officer of Nigeria, the governors of the states are the same in their domains. The House of Reps must first call for their resignation."
"We call on President Buhari to take drastic action on Governors who err on security and allow insecurity situations degenerate to raise conditions conducive to criticize and blame the Presidency," Bolaji said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that some chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress have accused the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of plotting to overthrow President Muhammadu Buhari over the growing insecurity in the country.
The chieftains who are members of the APC-Local Government Chairman group alleged that the PDP is planning on carrying out its agenda by manipulating the National Assembly.
