Meanwhile, the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign for failing to provide security in the country.

The forum made the demand in a statement by its spokesperson,
Hakeem Baba-Ahmed and said it was disappointing that after nearly
seven years of being in office, Buhari still has no answers to security
challenges across the country.

The NEF said the country cannot continue to live and die under the
dictates of killers, kidnappers, rapists and sundry criminal groups that
have deprived Nigerians of their rights to live in peace and security.

The Forum said the Nigerian Constitution has provisions for leaders to
voluntarily step down if they are challenged by personal reasons or they
prove incapable of leading, adding that it is now time for President
Buhari to seriously consider that option.

It reminded the President that his leadership has proved spectacularly
incapable of providing security over Nigerians, adding that Nigerians
cannot continue to live under such conditions until 2023.
