A Niger Delta-based cleric Most Reverend Tunde Adeleye has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign because the Nigerian leader has “failed”.
Concise News understands that Adeleye is the Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Niger Delta of the Anglican Communion.
“If I meet the president today, I will tell him in plain language that he has failed and must resign. This is because his advisers and aides have deceived him. So many things have gone wrong in this country in recent times. There is louder outcry,” he said at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Calabar.
Adeleye, who said that unity of the country must be renegotiated, added that Nigeria could explode soon if things continue this way.
He spoke at a time many Nigerians in the county’s southern region have condemned the Rural Grazing Area (RUGA) settlement project initiated by the Buhari administration.
This news medium understands that RUGA Settlement is a rural project plan by the Buhari administration aimed at ensuring animal farmers/herders stay in a designated place provided with basic amenities such as schools, hospitals, road networks, vet clinics, markets among others.
But many Nigerians kicked against the initiative, resulting in the suspension of the plan till further notice.
However, the suspension did not go down well with the Coalition of Northern Groups as it gave Buhari a 30-day ultimatum to implement the plan.
In its reaction, the Northern Governors’ Forum called on all stakeholders, especially in the North, to remain calm while allowing government to handle the matter.
However, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has alleged that the government plans to reintroduce the RUGA settlements for herdsmen.
