Shehu Sani, a federal lawmaker, on Wednesday, urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to resign his position.
While speaking against the call by Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, Sani said Buhari should complete his tenure.
He added that Buhari should be allowed to complete his tenure so he can conduct elections in 2023.
In a tweet, Sani wrote: “Our respectable Northern Elders want Buhari to resign; I humbly disagree, allow Sai Baba to finish his tenure and conduct elections.”
It will be recalled that NEF had called for Buhari’s immediate resignation over the spate of insecurity in the country,.
According to the group, Buhari had failed to address the issues of killings, kidnappings and general insecurity in the North.
Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the Director, Publicity and Advocacy of NEF, said this in a statement he issued on Tuesday
