Those calling for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari, as a result of his present ill-health, which has taken him out of the country, should better re-tune their message and rather pray for his recovery, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), said on Saturday.

The group, which saw the call, “unconstitutional” and “misplaced,” spoke against the backdrop of the comment of the Co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls group (BBOG), Aisha Yesufu, for Buhari to resign, maintained that such call was unnecessary.

The ACF, conveyed its position through its spokesman, Alhaji Muhammad Ibrahim Biu, in a statement, in which he canvassed that Nigerians should pray for the President, rather than intimidating him or calling for his resignation.

The statement reads: “Nigeria is practising a presidential system of government as contained in the 1999 constitution (as amended). President Buhari has done what is constitutionally required of him to do by his letter to the leadership of the National Assembly. The Vice President is now Acting President, performing the duties of Mr. President.

“In other countries, when their President fall sick or become incapacitated while in office, the citizens encourage him through prayers and good wishes, rather than intimidation or calling for his resignation.

“We can draw a lesson from such countries and wish President Buhari well for the progress of our country.

“The call by Aisha Yusuf co-convener of BBOG for President Buhari to resign is therefore unnecessary, misplaced and not in tune with the provisions of our 1999 constitution.”
