#iStandWithBuhari Coordinator, Mustapha Ramalan Formally Resigns From Organisation
The National Coordinator of #iStandWithBuhari organisation, Mustapha Ramalan has formally resigned from the group.
His resignation was contained in a letter personally signed by him, a copy of which was sent to Abusidiqu.
Although, he did not state the reason for his resignation, one of his close associates, Barrister Aliyu Abdullahi confirmed to Abusidiqu that it may not be unconnected to the credibility crisis the organisation is battling with.
Abusidiqu recalls that the organisation has faced several criticisms especially in the social media where its leaders were accused of positioning themselves t benefit from the largess of government.
According to Abdullahi, his close associate, the decision by Ramalan boils down to the insistence by some members of the group to forge on with the planned rally in support of the president.
He said Ramalan is of the opinion that a rally at a time when Nigerians are hungry and angry over issues like fuel scarcity, rise in exchange rate among many others will not speak well.
“While he favours a postponement of the rally especially as it may not garner the expected number of supporters expected to grace it, other members insisted on going ahead with the rally even if it means hiring crowds”, Adbullahi said, adding that this singular decision informed his decision to resign his position.
Ramalan in his resignation letter though said his decision will not affect his continous support and contribution to the organisation so long as the set ideas which the organisation stands for remain its hallmark.
He said “if I must lead the organisation, I must be convinced more than anyone on the path we choose for ourselves.”
