The resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari has been demanded by members of the southeast youth leaders who say that the president has failed to deliver and that the most “honourable thing to do is to resign”.
In the statement issued by the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL), in Enugu State, the issue of insecurity was highlighted, with the most recent being the killing of 43 farmers by Boko Haram insurgents in Borno State.
The group stated that the presidency is a “position of service” where the person filling the position should resign when they are unable to “deliver on government’s responsibility”.
The statement read, “Even in a society of fools and nonentities, they will not keep quiet if they are being slaughtered like rams and goats on daily basis. The office of the President is a position for service and when the President cannot deliver on government’s responsibility to its citizens, the most honourable thing to do is to resign.
“In this case the President has refused to resign despite failing to protect Nigerians. Only recently, Boko Haram massacred 73 farmers on their farms. These persons have loved ones and people who depend on them for survival. They were butchered in broad daylight and you don’t some expect Nigerians to clap for Mr. President for a job well done.
“The National Assembly and Nigerians have told the President to sack the service chiefs and he has remained adamant to the call. You can’t be doing one thing the same way and expect to get different results.
“The President and his service chiefs have failed Nigerians and we are totally in support of his resignation or impeachment.
“Our leaders sit tight in office even when it is obvious that they have failed woefully. The see the office as a means of corrupt enrichment and so they must stay tight even if everyone is against them.”
