Nigeria Dapchi Girls: Cleric, Lawmaker Carpet Buhari over Girls Abduction
Local Editor

Nigeria's Bishop of Owo Diocese, Rt. Rev'd Ayodeji Fagbemi and a member of the House of Representatives, Oladipupo Adebutu berated Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari over the abduction of the 110 Dapchi girls in Yobe State, saying it has exposed his weakness.

They also called for his resignation and that of the service chiefs over the abduction to "give room for a young and vibrant leader to move the nation forward."

The clergyman said the war against terrorism has crumbled. Fagbemi said: "So with all due respect, while we appreciate the interest of our President in Nigeria, I think he needs to retire as a statesman and allow younger people to actually lead in this country."

For his part, Adebutu, who represents Remo Federal Constituency, PDP, at the National Assembly, said Buhari must resign if his government fails to rescue the abducted girls as soon as possible.

He stated this while fielding questions from newsmen shortly after the inauguration of PDP secretariat in Odogbolu local government area.

He said the "recent kidnap of the girls in their school introduced a lot of complications into the system and confirmed that there is insecurity in the land. He said: "What goes round comes round. We had Chibok Girls before and instead of addressing the problem Nigeria had, we turned it into partisan issue."
