Nigerians on social media are reacting to a viral video of Abia South Senator, Eyinnaya Abaribe demanding for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Abaribe made the demand after the Senate Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi, presented his motion on the alarming rate of insecurity in the country.
He said, “Nigerians will go to the government and ask the government to resign because they did not elect the chief of staff, the police IG, service chiefs and others.
“Nigerians voted a government into power. We are going with stones to stone them now because they have failed.”
The hashtag #BuhariResign is currently trending on Twitter, with Nigerians reminding Buhari of his campaign promises that had not been fulfilled and his call for former President Goodluck Jonathan’s resignation in the past.
Some reactions below:
I expect Buhari and APC to go after Sen Abaribe for giving us valid reasons the president should resign…
However it only makes sense for this #BuhariResign campaign to trend because this is definitely not the Nigeria of our dreams. Worsening insecurity, poverty etc !

Buhari has failed.
Some illiterates, blindfolded, ass kissers would not agree.
The primary responsibility of any govt is safety, and because he claimed he has key to security, Nigerians voted him in 2015.
Five years after, Nigerians are still being killed daily.#BuhariResign

We need more people like Senator Alaribe in this country.
He used the government's words against them.
This government said if they didn't perform we should stone them.. That is what we should do!!! #BuhariResign pic.twitter.com/w420Q57MFF
