The National Coordinator of Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG), Olusegun Bamgbose, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is already exhausted, adding that his exit from power will give Nigerians the needed sigh of relief.
Bamgbose noted that Nigeria’s unity is currently under serious threat, pointing out that the agitations for secession has never been this strong in the entire political history of the country.
According to the senior lawyer, who has also declared interest to run in the 2023 presidency, the open agitation for Oduduwa Republic is a visible evidence that all is not well with Nigeria’s unity.
“Our unity has never been this weak. The insecurity across the nation has never helped matters. Governance has been shut down,” Bamgbose told members of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, in Ilorin, Kwara State on Sunday.
“Nigeria is fast becoming the most unsecured in the world. There is virtually no day that there is not a report of killings and abductions.
“The Presidency has been crippled by these ugly events. Nigerians have lost interest and confidence in Buhari’s Presidency. Nigeria is almost a jungle.
“The security agents are overwhelmed. President Buhari has really not helped in assuring the citizens that there is respite at sight.
“Something urgent must be done or else the country will collapse. It’s, however, my humble view that the exit of Buhari will certainly fortify our unity.
“In essence, things may not really change for the better until we have a new government come 2023.
“Buhari is already exhausted. It’s only his exit from power that can give us sigh of relief. The era of sentiments has gone.
“The issue is not where you have come from but rather your ability to find a lasting solution to the intimidating challenges confronting us.
“As elected President of Nigeria, my priority will be to tackle insecurity headlong. I will only need 12 months to displace insecurity in Nigeria”, he said.
