Resign if overwhelmed, CSOs tell Buhari

A coalition of over 80 human rights organisations under the aegis of the Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room on Tuesday expressed disappointment over the poor state of the nation and worsening insecurity.

The organisation therefore advised the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to act fast or resign.

The NCSSR said this during a press conference on the state of the nation addressed by its convener, Ene Obi, and co-convener, James Ugochukwu, in Abuja.

“President Muhammadu Buhari should wake up to his responsibilities of steering the affairs of the nation in the areas of security and economic restoration which will rebuild the confidence of citizens by reassuring Nigerians of his ability to govern Nigeria or should honourably resign if the challenges are overwhelming,” the group said.

Beyond threats of impeachment against the President, the activists urged members of the National Assembly to strengthen their oversight of the Executive and demonstrate their role as representatives of the people by protecting and representing their interests.

The organisation, in the text of the conference read by Obi, also asked the Senate to carry out “a thorough background check and scrutiny of the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioners nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari, to allay any political party affiliation or alignment by any of the nominees.”

She said, “A few months ago, Situation Room on May 12, 2022, raised the alarm on the rising level of insecurity in the country; the level of transparency and accountability in the electoral process, among other concerns.
