Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has called for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari following the increasing security challenges in the country. The Director, Publicity and Advocacy, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, in an interview with Channels Television noted that life had lost its value under the present administration. The Forum also expressed outrage over the massacre of Borno rice farmers. He added that the demand for Buhari to resign is due to the absence of political will to fight the Boko Haram insurgency and other threats such as banditry, rustling and kidnapping. As expected massive reactions have trailed these comments on social media. See some below:
Buratai and the other service chiefs should just resign please, since they can't end Boko Haram before 2040. Buhari too should resign as proposed by the Northern Elders Forum, we need people that can assure us of success not failure. #SackServiceChiefs

Northern Elders Forum asking @MBuhari to resign is an indictment to @OfficialAPCNg failure in governance. No matter the lie lie Lai Mohammed propaganda to change the narrative, APC failure does not need (KPI) Key Performance Index to show it, it's obvious for the blind to see.

It is obvious that the only thing Buhari is good at is complaining about other people’s lack of technical know-how on how to end insecurity in the country.
I stand with Northern Elders Forum, the old man should resign and continue what he is best at – complaining.

See how easy it is for the NORTHERN ELDERS FORUM to call for the President's resignation but it's treason if any other person(s) from other regions do so. Kmt https://t.co/gWLs4F0bsx

Worried by the insecurity in the country, especially the recent killing of farmers in Borno State, The Northern Elders Forum, said it had become imperative for President Buhari to resign with immediate effect.
Question: His resignation will stop Boko Haram atrocities?

The President, #Buhari has been described by the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) as a leader that lacks empathy who has failed to see that Nigeria has a serious problem. Hypocrisy is golden, when your preferred quack doctor child treats you.

Who are the leaders of the Northern Elders Forum and who is funding them in this campaign against the government of Nigeria? Their backers must be arrested their accounts must be blocked and they must be sued to court by @adamugarba
