President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged to resign as commander-in-chief of the federation by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over his inability to stir the nation towards economic success.
The party on Thursday, November 5 said Buhari does not deserve to remain president for admitting that the nation is broke.
The party said the comment was a clear manifestation of his inability to lead the country.
Speaking at a press conference yesterday, the PDP publicity secretary in Edo state, Chris Nehikhareto, challenged Buhari to publish account balances of all transactions by previous PDP led government under former president Goodluck Jonathan and the APC led government under him since assumption of office.
Nehikhareto said Buhari’s lamentation is “annoying”, adding that the president was looking for excuses after boasting to the whole world that he will fix Nigeria.
He said: “President Buhari should show Nigerians the account balances and how much money he met in the coffers of the federal government since he came in.
“He has not shown anybody the accounts balance as at today. If he says the government is broke and he cannot manage it he should resign and handover power to someone who has responsibility and can manage the economy better.”
“The lamentation of Mr. President and his APC government is becoming annoying and I don’t think we should tolerate any more lamentation. They fought tooth and nail to take over government and now they have government, let them deal with it”,Nehikhareto stressed.
The opposition party earlier accused President Muhammadu Buhari of making negative statements on Nigeria’s economy and demarketing the country.
