The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged General Muhammadu Buhari to resign as the the president of the country and hand over power to someone that can manage the economy better, rather than sit and lament that the nation is broke.
The party’s publicity secretary in Edo state, Chris Nehikhareto, told newsmen at a press conference on Thursday, November 5, 2015 that Buhari’s comment was a clear indication that he cannot handle the country.
PDP described Buhari’s lamentation as annoying’, and wondered why he was looking for excuses after boasting to the whole world that he would salvage the country from the ‘rot’ if he is elected the president.
They further challenged Buhari to publish account balances of all transactions by the administration of immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan and his own administration since he was sworn in on Friday, May 29, 2015.
They further urged Buhari to deal with the challenges of governing the nation and stop lamenting.
The PDP 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.”
