Buhari Won’t Resign As Nigeria President

President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to calls by Northern Elders Forum (NEF) to resign due to insecurity in Nigeria.

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, said the president does not wish to be drawn into the high-decibel show in the media.

“Publicity is the oxygen for politicians who have failed to connect with voters in a democracy”, a statement Wednesday night reads.

Shehu said the resignation call “is not a solution to the security problems facing the country”, noting that it built up to a worrisome level following decades of neglect.

The aide told citizens to know what their government is doing to deal with the situation “and for politicians to come to terms with the fact that, it is beneficial to all. That they should help to preserve the state so that when it is their turn, they will have a place that they will manage”.

“People don’t have to destroy what is there in a desperate quest to get power”, the presidency said.

In response to the attacks in Kaduna and Niger States, Shehu informed the public that security agencies have realigned and reorganized ongoing operations there and in Niger Delta.

He said structures are being reinforced with land-based assets to increase the efficiency of the troops and intelligence is equally being reinforced.
