The Peoples Democratic Party on Wednesday issued a statement calling for President Muhammadu Buhari to step down from office over his poor handling of the country’s economy.
The statement issued by their spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye, in Abuja partly reads;
“What Nigerians want from this Administration are results, simple! And not resorting to throwing tantrums on the PDP at every given opportunity.
Our call for the President to return the Country to how he met it in 2015 is justified on the following grounds: a bag of rice was N7,000 and now is above N20,000; a mudu of beans was N150 and now is N500; one US Dollar was trading for N197 but now over N400; a liter of fuel was N87 but now N145; cost of transportation and other services have skyrocketed.
Given our observation since the inception of this government, they have nothing to offer and as such, quitting will be a solution because nobody can give what he/she does not have. APC has failed.
The PDP calls on Nigerians to recall President Buhari’s purported ‘body language’ at the beginning of his administration and re-iterated that governance is a serious business and not about someone’s body language’ and de-marketing strategies of Mr. President while ‘globetrotting’.
When this government came to power in May 2015 riding on the achievements of previous PDP Administration, President Buhari’s handlers and his Party, the APC claimed it was his ‘body language’ that brought some positive changes the Country was witnessing at that time; so we want to know what are the results of the so called ‘body language’?”.
“The crass ineptitude and lukewarm-attitude of this APC government is no longer tolerable, and therefore, we are calling on President Buhari and his team to return Nigeria to its state of a booming economy before they assumed office in May 2015, and then quit immediately to allow other capable leaders recover our ailing economy.”
“There is no better time than now to make this call for the President to return the Country to how he met it and quit, or right away quit for a more experienced team to take over”.
