PDP tells Buhari to resign, return Nigeria economic

The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, called on the Federal Government to seek the advice of economic experts in tackling the current economic crisis in the country. He gave the advice, yesterday, during the traditional Sallah Durbar at  Government House, Kano. 

The all Progressive Congress(APC) stroked back, when the emir’s advice came as the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), called on President Muhammadu Buhari to step down from office; but not without returning the country’s economic indices and prices to the point they were when he took over. 

The All Progressives Congress(APC), insisted that whatever economic challenges facing the country  were as a result of PDP’s misrule and looting of the country’s resources.

in a statement issued by the party’s national spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said: “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 country to how he met it in 2015 is justified on the following grounds: A bag of rice was N7,000 and now it is above N20,000; a mudu of beans was N150 and now N500; one US Dollar was trading for N197 but now over N400; a litre of fuel was N87 but now N145; cost of transportation and other services have skyrocketed. 

“When this government came to power in May 2015, riding on the achievements of previous PDP administration, President Buhari’s handlers and his party, the APC, claimed it was his ‘body language’ that brought some positive changes the country was witnessing at that time; so we want to know what are the results of the so called ‘body language’,” Prince Adeyeye queried. 

The party concluded that the earlier the President and his team quit, the better for the country, saying “there is no better time than now to make this call for the President to return the country to how he met it and quit, or right away quit for a more experienced team to take over”.

Giving our observation since the inception of this government, have nothing to offer, quickly added that quitting will be a solution because nobody can give what he/she does not have. APC has failed.

Meanwhile, the urgent task before the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration is to restore the country’s battered economy back to health and all legitimate and innovative means.

The party assured Nigerians of the strong political will and commitment of the Buhari administration to revive the economy and tackle the nation’s current challenges through suitable and well-thought economic policies, fiscal discipline and socio-political reforms. 

The party added that President Buhari was aggressively formulating and implementing policies aimed at diversifying Nigeria’s economy from oil to other sectors such as agriculture, mining and manufacturing. 

The APC assured Nigerians that the administration will pull the country out of the present hardships. 

With the support, cooperation, patience and prayers of Nigerians, the country will reach its deserved potential under our leadership.
