Again, the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign and hand over to his Vice, Yemi Osinbajo.
NEF’s Director of Publicity and Advocacy, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, reiterated this in a tweet dropped in the light of Buhari’s statement, “I wish the person who is coming after me the very best. I am eager to go. I can tell you it has been tough.”
Baba-Ahmed weighed in on Buhari’s tweet, tweeting, “President Buhari told APC Govs that he is looking forward to the end of his tenure, saying it has been tough. Who would remind him that he does not need to wait until May 29th, 2023? Who will tell him it looks like things will only get tougher?” .
His tweet drew angry response from a supposed Buhari’s supporter who hit out at Ahmed, “Buhari doesn’t listen to mad men” to which the former permanent secretary, Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs replied, “Please tell him yourself. You will be doing us all a great favour. Remind him, he is elected to perform governance functions like protecting citizens. If he will not, or cannot, he can yield the office to his Vice until 2023. Then he can start resting now. That’s how it works.”
