- The Zabarmari killing has renewed the calls for President Muhammadu Buhari to resign
- A northern forum has told the president to honourably vacate the seat of power due to his inability to protect Nigerians
- The group described the president's response to the Zabarmari killing as "most insensitive"
President Muhammadu Buhari has on Tuesday, December 1, been told to resign from the seat of power following the spate of attacks and rising insecurity in the country, with the government seemingly appearing helpless.
Making this demand is the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) which slammed the presidency for being insensitive to the attacks on Nigerians living in local communities.
The forum, which spoke through its spokesperson Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, said lives under the current government are valueless, and the most expected of a helpless leader is to resign honourably.
Reacting to the killing of 43 farmers in Borno state by suspected Boko Haram members, the forum described as "most insensitive" the response of the president, saying "our voices have been raised without pause for a long time against pervasive insecurity in our region."
“These particular killings have been greeted by the most insensitive response by spokespersons of the President.
“Under this administration, life has lost its value, and more and more citizens are coming under the influence of criminals. We do not see any evidence of a willingness on the part of President Buhari to honour his oath to provide security over Nigerians.
“In civilized nations, leaders who fail so spectacularly to provide security will do the honourable thing and resign.”
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has urged President Buhari to have a rethink on war against terrorism
