The call by the Minority Leader of the Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe, on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to resign immediately based on Buhari’s inability to curtail the alarming security challenges in the country caused a stir on the floor of the red chamber on Wednesday.
Abaribe said the attitude of the president to insecurity in the country, surprised him.
He said those who live by propaganda will die by propaganda.
Abaribe said he was building up to the fact that they said Boko Haram have been defeated.
He said the hard work that was supposed to be done to secure the country was not done because of the propaganda.
He said excuses for non-performance is now staring them in the face.
“Nigerians voted a government into power. We are going with stones to stone them now because they have failed.”
When the uproar generated by Abaribe subsided, Senator Abdullahi Adamu said Abaribe’s submissions were unnecessary.
The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, also appealed to his colleagues to approach the issue with caution.
Meanwhile, the senators also protested when the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, in his contribution vehemently opposed creation of state police on account of paucity of funds crippling the states and possible abuse by the state governors.
