The #resumeOrResign protesters have accused aides of President Muhammadu Buhari of “holding him captive.”
They called on the President to demonstrate his” touted integrity” by resigning from office, saying he is “incapacitated and can no longer rule the country.”
The civil society coalition members reminded Buhari that he once asked late President Musa Yar’Adua to resign or be impeached when the latter was sick in 2010, stressing that he should toe the path of honour by doing so.
Speaking to journalists on the fourth day of their protest at the Unity Fountain, Maitama, Abuja on Thursday, the convener, Deji Adeyanju, said Buhari should leave office if he knew what integrity meant.
He stated that the President should have done so within one month of leaving the country on medical leave.
He said, “We must tell the man (Buhari) who said he had integrity, the man who asked Yar’Adua to resign in 2010 when he was sick, the same thing he said to the late president is the same request we are making to him. A President that has been sick for 94 days would resign if he has integrity.”
The activist added “posterity would be unkind to all those that visited Buhari but failed to advise him to do the right thing because of selfish reasons.”
