Insecurity: Resign Before Nigeria Becomes Somalia - Northern Coalition Tells Buhari

The presidency has described as foolish, a call by senate minority leader Enyinnaya Abaribe asking president Buhari to resign

Senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, says the call does not represent the opinion of the country but the opinion of an arm chair critic, known for making stray comments.

Shehu says if a leader like president Buhari needs to resign, then millions of other Nigerians also need to resign, including senator Abaribe.  He said the senator had unlocked the door for treasonable suspects like Nnamdi Kanu to escape.

Abaribe had earlier called for president Buhari to resign, saying he has failed to protect Nigerians.

Assange Extradition Hearing Gets Under Way In London

A London court has begun hearing arguments in the extradition hearings against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

The hearing will last for about a week, with proceedings expected to resume in may for an additional three weeks.

A US grand jury indicted Assange last May with 17 counts under the US espionage act and one count of computer hacking. As each of the 17 counts carries a maximum sentence of 10 years, he could face a total of 175 years’ in jail should he be brought to stand trial across the Atlantic.
