One time Minister of Petroleum, Tam David-West, has advised President Jonathan to resign as president, if the search for the girls abducted from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, produces no positive result.

He urged the president to take a cue from the South Korean Prime Minister, Chung Hong-won, who tendered his resignation following a boat mishap that claimed the lives of over 300 persons last month.

In an interview with Sunday Independent, David-West said “Jonathan should have resigned. Jonathan is the chief security officer of the country where billions of naira is voted every year for security, then a group of people formed themselves under insurgency and carry away your citizens and you cannot find them, he would have resigned long ago.

“I expect Jonathan to have made a good speech, thanking the foreign powers for coming to help us, but as a president of the country, he failed to act at the right time.

“Honestly, I prayed that the girls should come back, but I am not optimistic that they could get back the 200 girls and if that happens, then Nigeria is in for a great trouble.

“Jonathan has no business remaining in Aso Rock making speeches that does not impress me and the country”.

Continuing, he lambasted the Federal Government for the manner with which it responded to the incident, saying measures should have been put in place to limit the movement of the abductors within Nigeria.

He added, “If this government is a responsive and responsible type, Jonathan wouldn’t wait so long before doing something.

“For a long time, he did not say anything only for him to wake up one day from his slumber to make an unacceptable statement.

“I respect the office of the President, but I don’t respect the president’s nonsense.

“Jonathan has the best security personnel in the continent with a lot of billions voted for security every year therefore, the best thing to do was to ordered for the closure of the borders twenty four hours when the girls were declared missing.

“Look, Buhari closed our borders against petroleum smuggling, why can’t Jonathan close the borders against human trafficking?
