- A former spokesman for PDP presidential campaign, Segun Sowunmi, has thrown his weight behind the call for Buhari's resignation
- Senator Abaribe had on Wednesday, January 29, asked the president to resign based on the level of insecurity in the country
- The former Atiku's aide said that Abaribe spoke for the slain Nigerians and their families
The call by the Senate minority leader, Eyinanya Abaribe, for President Muhammadu Buhari, to resign as the number one citizen of Nigeria has continued to gather momentum.
Channels TV reports that a spokesman for the presidential campaign council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections, Segun Sowunmi, on Thursday, January 30, lent his voice to Abaribe's call for Buhari's resignation.
Legit.ng gathered that while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Sowunmi explained that Senator Abaribe was speaking on behalf of slain Nigerians, their families, and others who were victims of the security challenges in the country.
He said: “I think Senator Abaribe’s comments must be situated properly. He is speaking on behalf of the people of the northwest; he is speaking on behalf of the northcentral, he is speaking on behalf of the families of slain Nigerians, the dead and their loved ones.
"He (Abaribe) is speaking on behalf of apolitical Nigerians, he is speaking on behalf of friends of Nigerians, he is speaking on behalf of the minority leader in the House (of Representatives) and he is making a very frank call that there is no reason for human lives to be lost under All Progressives Congress (APC) led administration.”
According to him, it has got out of the president’s capacity to manage the problem of security, adding that there is nothing wrong in honourably resigning and allowing competent hands to take over.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the PDP expressed shock over comments credited to President Buhari to the effect he said he was surprised at the increased level of insecurity in the country.
