President Muhammadu Buhari has replied Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe who called for resignation over an alleged increase in the spate of insecurity in the country.
Recall that on Wednesday during Senate plenary, Mr Abaribe called on Mr Buhari to resign as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, following his failure to secure the country.
However, in a swift reaction, the President, through his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said Mr Abaribe’s call is foolish.
According to the President, the Senator is supposed to be in jail for his failure to produce IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu for whom he stood as surety.

SENATOR ABARIBE’S CALL ON PRESIDENT BUHARI TO RESIGN IS FOOLISH
President Buhari to resign on what basis?
Just because some characters think that President Buhari should resign, then they expect him to quit. That call does not represent the opinion of the country. This is the opinion of an arm chair critic, known for making stray comments.
If a leader like President Buhari needs to resign, there are millions of other Nigerians who need to resign, including Senator Abaribe who unlocked the door to enable the escape of traitorous and treasonable suspects.
He signed the bond for the court to release Nnamdi Kanu on bail, from which moment the suspect disappeared into the thin air. Senator Abaribe has failed repeated deadlines to return Kanu to the court for trial, yet he has the effrontery with which to accuse someone of failing to the bidding of the law.
This is a man who should have replaced the suspects he failed to produce in the correctional facility.
Abaribe’s party raped the nation and left it collapsing in 2015 and President Buhari is fixing things up all the years he is in office.
President Buhari is working hard to keep Nigeria and Nigerians out of the harm terrorists have unleashed in the entire Sahel and Sub-Saharan Africa with the support of Nigerians and our foreign friends, he is going to finish off these terrorists. He alone can do it.
