Buhari should resign if unable to tackle insecurity – Falana
Lagos lawyer Femi Falana’s wife, Mrs Funmi Falana, on Sunday said the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and the 36 state governors should resign from office if they were helpless on the insecurity in the country.
Falana, who is also a human rights activists, said governments had failed on security and something needed to be done, lamenting that “Nigerians are afraid to go out, Nigerians fear for their lives, they are afraid for their security. It is very sad. Nobody ever envisaged that Nigeria will get to a situation like this.”
The human rights lawyer, who spoke in Iyin Ekiti, Ekiti State, during her yearly New Year celebration with motherless children, called on states yet to domesticate the Child’s Right Law to do so.
She said, “There is the need to do something about the security of the citizens. A government that is unable to guarantee the security of the citizens is a failed government, so if they cannot protect the Nigerian people, the governments have failed.
