Senior Special Assistant to the President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has attacked Senator Abaribe for calling on the president to resign over the rising insecurity in the country.
Earlier on Wednesday, Abaribe had said, “Nigerians will go to the government and ask the government to resign because they did not elect the chief of staff, the police IG, service chiefs and others.
“Nigerians voted a government into power. We are going with stones to stone them now because they have failed.”
While responding to the lawmaker, Shegu Garbar said the call for the president to resign lacks merit, he said ” President 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 armchair critic, known for making stray comments.
“He (Abaribe) 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 do the bidding of the law.
“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.”
