The call for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation over the country’s state of insecurity has been described as terrorist propaganda.
A Pro-Democracy group National Democratic Front, NDF, said the call by some few Nigerians were sponsored by terrorists, who are hell-bent on making Nigeria ungovernable.
Recall that a coalition comprising 42 frontline civil society organisations and Femi Falana’s law firm have asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign or be removed from office by the National Assembly if he cannot address the persistent insecurity in the country.
According to them, through balancing, it will be demonstrated “that every part of Nigeria matters as sectional appointments appear to fuel sectional violence.”
Reacting, the NDF said it has uncovered a plot of some coalitions to facilitate further degeneration of the country’s security situation, which they will use to launch a “Buhari Must Go” protest across the nation.
In a statement by its Director, Paul Aliyu, the group, therefore, called on Nigerians and the international community to hold every single group and individual in the coalition responsible for any degeneration in the security situation in the land.
According to Aliyu: “You are aware that a coalition made of 43 groups has come out to demand that President Muhammadu Buhari steps down or be impeached by the National Assembly if he does not meet their five-point demand.
The basis for this seditious demand is the security breaches in the country, which these groups are claiming that the president has not done anything about.
“Before proceeding to speak on these demands, we will first speak on the identity of those making them so that Nigerians can appreciate that they are being taken for a ride by a criminal gang that has remained dissatisfied from the moment their sources of slush and illicit funds were obstructed by the reforms birthed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
These are organizations that have invested much in supporting Boko Haram and just any terrorist organization. That can help create a sense of terror and insecurity.
“NDF, hereby, alerts Nigerians to the uncovering of the plot by the coalition to facilitate further degeneration of the security situation in the country, which they will then use to launch a “Buhari Must Go” protest across the nation.
“We want Nigerians and the international community to hold every single group and individual in the coalition responsible for any resulting degeneration in the security situation in the land. We ask the law enforcement agencies to be at alert, especially with the discovery that the coalition is reportedly working on multiple options for destabilizing the country further in order to force the president out of office. This is a dangerous threat to our democracy and must not be allowed to evolve.”
