Protesters demanding Buhari’s resignation should be cautious – Garba Shehu

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, has asked those calling for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari to be cautious.

Shehu made the statement on Monday hours after some groups under the aegis of Concerned Nigerians protested in Abuja and asked the President to either resume or resign.

“Those calling for Buhari’s resignation are stepping outside the laws of the country. Although they are within their rights, they should exercise caution and conduct their research accordingly,” Mr Shehu told State House correspondents.

He explained that President Buhari handed over to his vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, according to the Constitution and, therefore, has not breached any law.

Members of the group who protested the non-disclosure of the President’s health status claimed that his long stay abroad has caused setbacks for the Federal Government.
