BBOG co-convener, Aisha Yesufu, asks Buhari to resign
Aisha Yesufu, a leader of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement, has called on president Muhammadu Buhari to resign due to his health issues.
In a two-minute video she posted online, Yesufu said Buhari can no longer discharge his duty as president.
“When are we going to realise that this acting president thing is not working out, its really not working out?” she asked.
“Things are stagnating in Nigeria, for crying out loud, the president is sick, the president is not capable of discharging his duty as president, why can’t he resign.”
This is not the first time Yesufu is speaking about the presidency.
In August 2016, she branded president Muhammadu Buhari as a “failure” for his inability to rescue the abducted Chibok girls.
“Mr President you are a failure, I dare President Muhammadu Buhari, you should stand up and behave like a man,” she had said.
“For crying out loud, the president is sick, the president is not capable of discharging his duties as president, why can’t he resign?
“Sickness can be on anybody, nobody is wishing the president bad. The fact that he is sick doesn’t mean he is going to die today or tomorrow. Somebody that is as healthy as I am now can drop dead. It is life! “How long are we going to wait and keep watching everything go in disarray. Who is going to sign the budget, we don’t know. The report on Babachir, what is happening to it?
“Why are we being held to ransom?” In a direct speech to the president, Yesufu said: “President Muhammadu Buhari, you have gotten the best in this world. A lot of things that you have, most people cannot even dream of.
“You have being president twice, you said it yourself, you have reached the peak of your career as a military man and as a politician. “Can you allow each and every one of us as Nigerians be able to reach the peak of our careers? Can you just take some time off, take care of yourself. May God give you good health.”
