The Senator representing Bayelsa East, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to yield to calls for his stepping aside after 2019.
Ben Bruce on Sunday stated that the call for Buhari’s resignation had been made louder following a recent statement by former military president, Ibrahim Babangida.
The lawmaker hailed Babangida for describing Benue killings in its rightful name, against a statement by Buhari’s camp, who said it was communal clashes.
In a series of tweets, he wrote “It brings some measure of satisfaction to me that President Babangida called what is happening in Benue by its rightful name. It is a pogrom. For the Buhari administration to call it communal clashes shows it is taking sides.
“I salute IBB for his courage. Others should also speak.
“First your wife, then your daughter, then your former boss, then your former colleague..It should be clear to you by now.”
