Resign immediately, PDP tells Buhari

15 September 2016, 07:10

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party have urged President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office immediately but after only returning the country to the status it was in before he was elected into power, Punch reports.

The PDP said in a statement that it was not happy with the current state Nigeria was in and specifically referred to the fact that the country officially found itself in a recession.

"Nigeria’s economy is already near depression.  The crass ineptitude and lukewarm-attitude of this All Progressives Congress 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 revive our ailing economy,” the statement said.

The PDP added that the country was in a dire state with three airlines, local and international and banks already having suspended operations.

News24 reported that hours after Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun denied saying 'recession is a word', a video of her making the remark during a public gathering has surfaced online.

Adeosun had on Thursday dissociated herself from a social media account that posted what some have described as insensitive updates about Nigeria’s economic recession.

The Twitter account, @Mrskemiadeosun had played down the significance of a recession after the National Bureau of Statistics announced that Nigeria’s economy contracted by 2.06% in the second quarter, bringing the country into a long predicted recession.
