Mr Abaribe who is the Senate Minority Leader made the demand while speaking on the floor of the Senate to kick start debate on the Motion entitled, ‘Nigerian Security Challenges: Urgent need for restructure, review and reorganise the current Security Architecture’.

The Senator warned that Nigerians are coming with stones to chase out the government since it has failed in all its ramifications to protect lives and property against the backdrop that the government had once asked the people to stone it if it fails to perform.

“Today, the APC government has failed because people are being killed anyhow. If you want to deal with a matter, you first go to the head. We can go to the APC government and ask this government to resign.

“And we want to tell the government that if it does not resign, we shall have no option than to go with stones to pursue it,” Mr Abaribe said.
