Lai Mohammed has fired back at the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), a group of all the Northern leaders who earlier in their statement said that president Buhari’s resignation would go a long way in solving the insecurity state of the country. Speaking through their spokeman, Hakeem Baba Ahmed, they reiterated that the president has failed to protect the people of Nigeria and therefore needs to resign.

The Minister of Information and Culture condemned the call for the resignation to the country’s number one citizen, saying that the president will complete his second tenure in office regardless of any request from any quarters.

Speaking in Lagos during a meeting with the Newspaper Propietors Asssociation of Nigeria (NPAN), he further tagged the call for the resignation of the president as an irresponsible and cheap one and also insisted that the group were playing a cheap and dirty politics.

He said; “In the wake of the killing, there have been calls in some quarters for Mr. President to resign. Well, let me say here that this call amounts to playing dirty politics with the issue of security, and it is cheap and irresponsible.

“Mr. President was elected in 2015 for a four-year term and re-elected in 2019 for another four-year term. No amount of hysterical calls for resignation will prevent him from serving out his term,”

“Now, let’s put things in context. Before Mr. President assumed office, Boko Haram could stroll into any city, especially in the north, to carry out deadly attacks. Abuja, the nation’s capital, Kano, Maiduguri, Jos, Damaturu, etc were regularly targeted. Motor parks, churches, mosques, shopping complexes were not spared. Today, that is a thing of the past. Suicide bombers used to have a field day detonating their bombs and killing innocent people.”

“Therefore, calling on the President to resign every time there is a setback in the war on terror is a needless distraction and cheap politicking. Let’s stop playing politics with the issue of security.”
