President Buhari has once again been asked to resign over the growing security challenges in the country
– The call for resignation this time was made by the Northern Youth Coalition which said the president has failed to fulfil his promise of restoring peace to the country
– Recall that a PDP senator had also asked Buhari to resign over the security challenges
The Northern Youth Coalition (NYC) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office as a result of the growing level of insecurity in the country.
The group said it was high time the president left the office before the country’s situation becomes similar to that of Somalia.
The Guardian reports that the group’s national convener, Muhammed Ishaq, said in Abuja on Wednesday, February 12, that the security situation has worsened significantly so much that it is now similar to what was experienced during the administration of Buhari’s predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan.

Ishaq said that the former administration was ousted because of its inability to effectively tackle Nigeria’s insecurity.
He said President Buhari has failed to fulfil his promise of restoring peace to the country, particularly the northeast, after five years in power.
Ishaq said the current security situation is either worse than the Jonathan administration or it is not different from the previous government.
The group said it can no longer take excuses from the Buhari administration while lives are being lost every day due to the security challenges in the north.
“President Buhari has failed to secure the lives and property of Nigerians probably due to lack of political will, commitment or competence and he should therefore, resign to save the country from collapse,” the group said.
