The Presidency has lashed out at Abia senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe, after the lawmaker said President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to protect Nigerians and should resign.
Mr Abaribe spoke Wednesday as senators discussed rampant insecurity in the country.
Several Senators called for the resignation of service chiefs, but Mr Abaribe said the man who appointed them should also go.
The senator wondered why the president would claim to be surprised at the rising insecurity in the country.
“If you want to treat an issue, you go to the head. We did not appoint the IG or the security chiefs. We will go to the president and ask him to resign,” the lawmaker said.
The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, interrupted the lawmaker and asked him to focus on how to tackle insecurity.
