The presidential candidate of the People’s Trust, Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, said it has become clear that President Muhammadu Buhari is leading the country into chaos with his decision on the erstwhile CJN Walter Onnoghen.
Olawepo-Hashim said this in an interview with journalists on Friday.
He called on Buhari to immediately resign his position or risk being removed from office.
He also called for international sanctions against all officials of the present administration.
The presidential hopeful said, “This is very sad. It is condemnable and must be condemned by all lovers of democracy.
“It is an ominous return to dictatorship and a complete violation of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“I call on members of the international community to immediately impose sanctions on the members of the executive branch at the Federal Government.
“These sanctions should include revocation of existing travel visas for them and their families and business associates, including targeted asset seizures.
“I call on the President himself to step down and resign because he is leading Nigeria into chaos and anarchy.
“We fought so hard to install democracy and we paid dearly for it. We will not allow any group of people, no matter how powerful they think they have become, to take democracy down.
“This is not about politics; it is about democracy, which we fought so hard to put in place in Nigeria.
“If he refuses to resign, the National Assembly should commence his impeachment immediately.”
