The Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province, Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, on Wednesday, asked the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to leave the Government.
At a press briefing to mark his 31st Episcopal ordination, Archbishop Chukwuma declared that Buhari Government should step aside if it cannot pull the country out of the present security doldrum it has found itself in.
He said Nigerians had lost total confidence in Buhari’s administration and for that he should consider stepping aside to avoid pushing the country into a coup situation.
Lamenting the endless security challenges and killings across the country, he declared: ‘we are calling on the Government to declare security emergency because things have got out of hand and if they can’t do something about it, let them leave the Government.
‘They should not move this country to coup situation.’
He added that ‘the Federal Government under Buhari has failed the nation, and we have no confidence anymore in them.
‘We have lost confidence in the economy, we have lost confidence in the political system, we have lost confidence in governance, we have lost confidence in the security and something must be done.
‘If it is not done, I predict a revolution and it will be such that even the high and mighty will have no hiding place.’
The Archbishop described the present National Assembly as the worst in the history of the country.
