President Muhammadu Buhari has been called upon to resign from office over the rising insecurity bedeviling the country.
Senator Enyinnanya Abaribe representing Abia South senatorial district made the call during plenary on Wednesday when the red chamber was discussing challenges bordering on national security.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker was the first to tender his contribution during the motion.
“If you want to treat an issue, you go to the head. We did not appoint the IG or the security chiefs. We will go to the president and ask him to resign,” Abaribe said before being interrupted by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
Mr Lawan asked his colleague to make his contribution without attacking the president.
“Nigerians voted APC because they promised to tackle insecurity but they have failed,” the opposition lawmaker added before being attacked again by the Senate President and other members of the red chamber.
On Tuesday, Mr Buhari claimed he is surprised that Boko Haram terrorists were still existing despite claims by his administration that the terror group has been decimated.
