NIM leader, Jolayemi, calls for Buhari’s resignation
In a statement issued at the end of its meeting in Ekiti state, the coordinator of the Nigeria Intervention Movement (NIM) in the state, Mr. Moses Jolayemi, said Buhari has successfully demystified himself by advertising his gross incompetence in virtually every aspect of governance, the latest being the abduction of the Dapchi school girls two weeks ago.
According to Jolayemi, a former Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief, Newswatch Newspapers, the recent kidnap which occurred when the nation was yet to come to grips with the mindless massacre of over 70 people in Benue state by rampaging herdsmen has left Nigerians with no doubt that the President lacks the capacity to run the affairs of this country.
He pointed out that Buhari has failed woefully in the two most vital departments of human life-social and economy.
Also a former Editor/Editorial Board member, THISDAY Newspapers, he noted that Nigerians were going through the worst economic hardship in the nation’s history while insecurity has never so stubbornly stared us in the face.
Jolayemi, a former Special Adviser to the Oni-led Ekiti State Government, added: “Having demonstrated his incompetence in fixing the economy, one would have thought the President, being a retired Army General would show some degree of competence in ensuring the security of the citizenry.
But from all available evidence, this President has left no one in doubt, including his fellow party members, that he is incapable. I am not sure if it was worse than this during the civil war but from what I know, Nigerians have never felt so unsafe in this country’’
“In saner climes, we would not have been given the trouble of calling for the President’s resignation because any man who has a modicum of integrity would have willingly thrown in the towel, having failed on all fronts”
“It is an insult on the collective sensibilities of all Nigerians that a man who has not fulfilled any of his numerous campaign promises and who has spent a greater part of the time on medical vacation could be seeking re-election when in actual fact, he should apologize to Nigerians for wasting their time and humbly quit office’’
“In point of fact, bowing out honourably does not diminish the person of the president; rather it will locate him on the right side of history as a leader who placed national interest above personal ambition.”
