Mrs Ganiat Fawehinmi, widow to the late human rights activist, Chief Gani Fawehinmi has requested President Goodluck Jonathan to resign his position as president if he feels he cannot confront the growing insurgency in the country.

The call was made in Lagos by Mrs Fawehinmi at a press briefing organized by the Gani Fawehinmi Memorial Organisation (GAFAMORG) to announce activities marking the fifth anniversary of the lawyer’s death.

According to her, “the apparent helplessness of the president in the face of continuous bombing and the kidnap of school girls in Borno are enough to demand his resignation

“Look at the case of Chibok girls who were kidnapped; if they were the president’s daughters, wouldn’t he have acted? Look at how he acted when a relative of his in-law was kidnapped? He swung into action immediately and the person was found. If the president can do that, it means he is not working for Nigerian People but himself. So, if he cannot stop the insurgency, he should resign and allow someone who can do it to take over,” she said.

The widow also regretted what she termed Nigerian Bar Association (NBA)’s failure in supporting her husband while he led the advocacy to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of Ex-publisher of Newswatch Magazine, late Dele Giwa, who was murdered through a letter bomb. She recalled that her late husband’s stance at that time was that unearthing the true reason for Giwa’s death would prevent a re-occurrence.

Her words, “look at us today in Nigeria; a week can barely pass without reports of bomb blasts in the country. If Gani had been supported back then, maybe Nigeria won’t have been where it is today.”

She further called on Nigerian People to rise up and act, stressing that there was no better time to demand good governance from those leading the nation than now.
