Dino Melaye, senator who represented Kogi West, has asked President Buhari to address Nigerians over the state of security in the country, saying people did not vote for Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu, his media aides.
Buhari’s media aides have been communicating to Nigerians through press releases over efforts by the Federal Government over the rising insecurity in the country.
Melaye, during an interview on AIT on Friday, said the President’s silence is of no good to the country.
“President Buhari needs to speak to Nigerians directly, he needs to communicate with the media. Our president is absent, and this has negative concomitant effects on the war against insecurity in the country.
“It is very pathetic, but our president is not available. All we hear is presidency says, we didn’t vote for Garba Shehu or Femi Adesina.
“All our security challenges boils down to leadership failure, the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is grossly incompetent, not capable and all I expect is that since this man has shown more than enough evidence that he has no capacity to run this country.
“President Buhari should, in the interest of children yet unborn, in the interest of Nigerians that are dying, excuse us. It is simple, he should resign”, he said.
Speaking on the decision of senators of the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to join their Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterparts’ call to impeach Buhari, Melaye said the 9th assembly is a creation of the President, and will always carry out the dictates of the Presidential Villa.
“It is expected they will speak like that, because both chambers of the national assembly, the leadership of the national assembly is a creation of the villa, as we speak now, national assembly is a department of the villa,” he said.
“It is evident in the national assembly decision not to impeach Buhari, despite the array of insecurity, and gross display of incompetence by this government.”
