Ben Murray Bruce has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to either tackle the security challenges in the country or resign his position as Nigeria’s leader.
Bruce called on the Senate President Bukola Saraki to replace Buhari on the job following “his interest in fixing the problem.”
He described the security situation in the country as scary adding that the nation was tolling the same lane as Somalia and Liberia.
“It seems to me that Nigeria is becoming a lawless country,” Bruce, the commonsense lawmaker began.
“A country with no rules and regulation, a country where laws are not adhered to. A country where there is no consequence for bad behavior. We have a government, security agents, or we don’t.
“These are the fundamentals issues at stake today because every day since we have gotten here someone has gotten killed, raped, throat slit, killed at gun point and every day we have resolutions and nothing is being done.
“It is as if the senate is now the executive arm of government. I am just sorry for my colleagues, Senator Marafa in a closed door session told us what is happening in Zamfara state but he didn’t not say it in open house. What he said here frightened everyone. Zamfara state is being occupied by foreign mercenaries.
“That is a fact of life. If that is the case, what are we doing about it. If the people responsible for the protection of lives and proprieties in Nigeria cannot do their job, what happens in civilized countries, they are fired. Shehu sani on TV today explained it eloquently and he was dead on point.
“If the FG wants to run a red chamber to become the executive in Nigeria, then let us appoint the senate president to be the President of Nigeria. Let us do the job of the executive because it doesn’t make any sense,” he added.
