The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to resign as the country’s President for admitting that the nation is broke.
The party said the comment was a clear manifestation of inability to lead the country. PDP described Buhari’s lamentation as “annoying”, wondering why he was looking for excuses after boasting to the whole world that he will fix Nigeria.
At a press conference yesterday by PDP publicity secretary in Edo state, Chris Nehikhareto, the party 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.
“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 said.
“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”, he stated.
