A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Dr Garus Gololo, has described calls from some sections of the country that President Muhammadu Buhari should resign as unpatriotic.
Gololo, at a press briefing on Monday, October 19 in Abuja, said those calling for the resignation of the president are enemies of Nigeria.
The APC chieftain was reacting to the ongoing #EndSARS protests nationwide calling for police reforms.
Dr Gololo said the ongoing protest was rather targeted at Buhari and not the SARS, alleging that some powerful politicians somewhere may have been sponsoring the move to make the Buhari administration unpopular and distractive.
“To even think some persons will cross the red line and start asking for Buhari to resign is height of insolence and unpatriotic habit. Why are they asking him to resign when they didn't vote for him in the first place?
“Check out the sections of those calling for his resignation, they didn't vote for Buhari. Those who stood for Buhari and voted for him are pleased with his leadership charisma.
“The only way to change the government is through balloting which they could not achieve in 2019 because the majority of the people in Nigeria stood with Buhari.”
The APC chieftain also called on various security agencies, especially, the Nigeria Police Force and the Department of State Service to go after the sponsors of the protesters and bring them to book.

Meanwhile, Doyin Okupe, a former presidential media aide, has asked Nigerian youths under the #EndSARS movement to halt their protests and start the process of negotiating with the federal government.
Okupe, 68, gave the counsel to the protesting youths via a Facebook post on Friday, October 16, adding that the whole nation is proud of their efforts.
He said with what they have accomplished with the protests, they must gain maximally from it by negotiating with the authorities.
Similarly, a group, the Coalition Save Nigeria (CSN) has called on Nigerian youths to halt the #EndSARS protests currently ongoing across cities in Nigeria.
The protests, the coalition said has been hijacked by disgruntled politicians for personal or political gains which may be unknown to the protesting youths.
A statement signed by CSN's president, Raymond Ikoh, said, while a protest is the right of every Nigerian, there is need to apply wisdom and caution in seeking ways to make governance beneficial to all.
