Those seeking Buhari’s resignation wasting their time – Sani, ex-ACF scribe
A former Secretary-General of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Mr. Anthony Sani, says those calling for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation are wasting their time.
He said the call would have been possible if Nigeria were operating a parliamentary and not presidential system of government.
Sani, who was a Northern delegate to the 2014 National Confab, urged those seeking the president’s resignation to focus on electing a candidate of their choice in the 2023 presidential election.
“As a journalist, you are expected to know that presidents do not resign on the basis of calls by the opposition.
“More so that Nigeria operates a presidential system and not parliamentary system that can pass vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister to resign.
“Presidential system has specified periods when citizens are called to elect their leaders. Until such time, it is rare for presidents to resign in presidential system.
“What is more, all governments encounter challenges, some inherited and some others arise in the course of governance or due to vicissitude of life.
“And since pass mark is a range and not a single mark, it is difficult to pass such judgement without facts checking of trend analysis,” Sunday Sun quoted Sani as saying.
