Breaking News - Catholic Bishops Ask President Buhari To Resign

The catholic bishops conference demand President Muhammadu Buhari to resign following the tragic attack on a catholic church this Tuesday that led to the dead of two priests and their members.

The catholic bishops accuse president Buhari of neglecting the repeated calls against the ineffective security measures put in place to maintain peace between Christian farmers and Muslim herdsmen.

‘‘Since the president who appoints the security chiefs has refused to call them to order, we can only conclude that they are acting out of a script he approves of”… the bishops said in their statement.

They equally added that the president has lost the trust of his citizens since he has failed in his duty to keep the country safe.

“whether this failure is due to inability to perform or lack of political will, it is time for him to choose the path of honour and consider stepping aside to save the nation from total collapse.’‘ said the bishops.

Buhari has been accused of leniency in this matter, with many pointing to the fact that he shares ethnicity with the Fulani semi-nomadic herdsmen. Both the herdsmen and the settled farmers have carried out attacks that have left hundreds dead.

The President was summoned by the country’s legislators to discuss the security situation in Benue state. The lawmakers also passed a vote of no confidence in the country’s security this Wednesday.
