Resign and return Nigeria to Jonathan's era, PDP tells Buhari

15 September 2016, 12:11

Abuja - The People's Democratic Party has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office and also return the country to the era of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Vanguard reports.

The party in a statement, expressed surprise at what it described as the lackadaisical reaction of Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun to the recession, saying it was reflective of her ignorance, lack of patriotism or confirmation by the president that ministers were noise makers.

The fresh demand for the President’s resignation was ignored by the Presidency which, on Wednesday, directed reactions to the All Progressives Congress, APC, party officials, including the National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun.

The PDP, while calling on its supporters to keep on praying for the country, in a statement issued by the party’s national spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said: “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 booming economy before they assumed office in May, 2015, and then quit immediately to allow other capable leaders recover our ailing economy”.

Prince Adeyeye declared: “For instance, recall that about three airlines, local and international, like some banks, have suspended operations and sent their staff on indefinite leave due to poor state of Nigeria’s economy according to Guardian.

Nigerians are aware that the PDP government invested heavily in most of our airports in the country that resulted to obvious ‘facelift’ and improved operations through remodelling, construction of new airports, refurbishing and equipping of the local and international airports to meet best practices in the Aviation Industry.

“But the APC administration has frittered away all the good policies and programmes which the PDP put in place, thereby crumbling the aviation sector in the country among other catastrophes it has caused.

“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 counrty 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".
