A Nigerian former senator, Dino Melaye, has said the solution to the security problems in the country is for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to leave — “either ceremoniously or unceremoniously”.
Melaye spoke in a chat with Africa Independent Television (AIT) on Friday.
His remark come following the six-week ultimatum given to the president by opposition lawmakers. The lawmakers had warned that Buhari’s frailty to improve the security situation in the country would lead to impeachment proceedings.
Speaking about the conversation on insecurity, Melaye pronounced that Nigeria is “in perilous times”.
He also mentioned that he had predicted four years ago that the security circumstance would get worse.
The former lawmaker also said he was attacked when he noted that insecurity would one day spread to the federal capital territory (FCT).
“But today, you can see that there is brazen confidence my these satanic characters to the extent that, for the first time in history, bandits are giving prison statements and even saying that the president of a country is going to be abducted,” he said.
“I’ve never seen that before and I’ve never read anywhere before where the convoy of the president is being attacked. But you can see that it is happening.
“We are in perilous times in our history and there is no solution than for this government to leave either ceremoniously or unceremoniously.”
