"Resign now or..." Speaker Tambuwal warns President Jonathan

Embattled Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, on Wednesday, asked President Goodluck Jonathan to resign from office for running "a system that does not have the interest of the country at heart". The Speaker warned that should the president failed to do so, Nigerian voters should revolt against him at the February presidential poll.

Tambuwal who recently defected from PDP to APC, said this in Ilorin, Kwara State, during the formal declaration of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed for a second term.

"I call on President Jonathan to resign from office because of all the mis-governance and the untold hardship Nigerians are presently passing through," he said. "If he fails to do that it is therefore incumbent on us as a people to turn out en-masse and vote out Goodluck Ebele Jonathan come 2015. That will bring peace, progress and development of Nigeria.''

He continued, "I am sure that (Kwara) state will provide such leadership to the extent that we shall deliver this country to the government at the centre to APC."

''By voting APC at the centre you will be voting for prosperity and eradication of poverty. What we are witnessing today in Nigeria is not governance, but mis-governance. We are witnessing a system that does not have the interest of the people of this country at heart."

Also speaking at the event, a former governor of Lagos , Bola Tinubu, lambasted Mr. Jonathan for allowing the Boko Haram terrorists to seize parts of the nation's territory, stating that he ought to have resigned because of the development.

He said, ''I saw the sea of refuges and the lies coming from Jonathan's administration. They have exhibited failure, lack of capacity, vision, creativity; the lie of yesterday is what they repeat today and it is what they will repeat tomorrow. They are lying to you. They are lying about the security, toying about the security of this country. I don't have time to explain the logic of their lies.''

''If you control the armed forces and you are the Commander-in-Chief of the armed of the federal republic, why should any part of this country be under occupation?

"And you give us excuses everyday. In any civilised country, Jonathan should have resigned. But if he will not resign he should wait for our broom we will sweep them away.''
