Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria has called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to tender his letter of resignation in the wake of his recent comments on the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
Buhari on Monday lampooned the striking lecturers, saying enough is enough for keeping students at home for over four months.
Reacting, HURIWA in a statement called on Buhari to resign if he cannot resolve the lingering crisis.
“Buhari should be honest enough to resign now to minimise the damage his crass incompetence and gross dereliction of duty would cost the country if he stayed on till May, 29 2023.
“It is so sad that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has not only endangered national security interests by the nepotistic appointments of only Northern Muslims as heads of all the internal security institutions including the Prison/Correctional centres and the President by refusing to fire his officials who have sabotaged national security including those who clearly facilitated the recent invasion of the Kuje minimum security prison in Abuja.
“We, therefore, appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to be a statesman by tendering his resignation from office now to stave off greater disasters that await the nation should his rudderless government persists in its infamy, impunity and lawlessness,” the group added
