Lai Mohammed Says Buhari Will Complete Tenure Despite Calls For Resignation

The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed has said President Muhammadu Buhari will complete his tenure despite the calls for his resignation.

Speaking at a meeting with the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigerian (NPAN) in Lagos on Thursday, December 3, Mohammed said the calls for the president’s resignation were political.

According to The Cable, he described it as cheap and irresponsible to ask a president to resign before he completes his tenure over the killings of some farmers in Borno state.

Mohammed said:

“In the wake of the killing, there have been calls in some quarters for Mr. President to resign.

“Well, let me say here that this call amounts to playing dirty politics with the issue of security, and it is cheap and irresponsible. Mr. President was elected in 2015 for a four-year term and re-elected in 2019 for another four-year term.”

He insisted that no amount of clamour for resignation will stop the president from serving his term.

The minister said it amounts to needless distraction and cheap politicking to demand for the president to step down anytime there is a setback in the war on terror.
