The Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, has called for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari, following the spate of insecurity in the country.

NEF said Buhari should toe the path of honour and resign for failing to ensure the security of Nigerians.

The forum made the demand while lamenting that the lives of Nigerians no longer have value under Buhari’s administration.

Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the Forum, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed also faulted the response of Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu to Boko Haram killing of rice farmers in Borno State.

Baba-Ahmed, in a statement described Sani’s remark as ‘most insensitive’.

The statement reads: “Northern Elders Forum (NEF) joins Nigerians in expressing outrage at the killings of farmers in Borno State and many other people on a daily basis in many parts of the North. 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. The lame excuse that farmers had not sought permission from the military to harvest produce merely exposed the misleading claims that our military had secured vast territories from the insurgency.

“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.”
