The spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, has asked those around President Muhammadu Buhari to ask him to resign.

Baba-Ahmed, who said he was speaking in his personal capacity, made his position known in a series of tweets.

He said his call followed the recent state of security in the country, adding that it might be the worse with the upcoming elections in 2023.

He tweeted: “When you have a President with huge powers like ours has, NOBODY leads anything. He is everything. He sets standards.

“He determines how those below him work. Even VP, governors, Legislators, Ministers etc. He can’t pass the buck. Where you have a near-total collapse, he is responsible.

“This is MY PERSONAL opinion; I am terrified by the state of Nigeria. I am more terrified by what it will be by May 2023.

“If there are people he listens to, they should ask him to consider resigning. Any lawful option is better than his continuing. Raise your voice, Nigeria. It’s enough.”
