Nigeria News – Atiku Advises Buhari To Step Down
Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s remark that the economy of Nigeria was in a bad shape.
PDP Presidential candidate said PresidentBuhari should vacate his post over his confession on the bad state of the economy of Nigeria.
The President had made the remark while meeting with governors of the federation on Friday.
The former Vice President said, on Sunday, in a statement by Mr Phrank Shaibu, his Special Assistant on Public Communication, that Buhari has continued to exhibit his cluelessness, incapacity and ineptitude in handling the economy of Nigeria.
Atiku described Buhari’s confession that the “Nigerian economy has collapsed under his watch as not only a pathetic ploy to attract the sympathy of Nigerians with his false honesty but also, a disguise to get a soft landing from the people he has put under terrible suffering and hardship in the last three and half years.”
The statement reads, “The result, of course, is this late hour confession of failure on the eve of our general elections, in the hope that millions of Nigerians, whom he has condemned to poverty and hardship, will give him a clap for failing abysmally. I dare say that President Buhari has miscalculated badly on this matter because Nigerians are simply fed up with him.
“The economy has collapsed under his watch and he has by this frank remarks admitted that he has no idea on how to fix it and that is why he summoned the governors to help him. This is really very sad because President Buhari has run out of time and what Nigerians need now is a leadership which has the political will, administrative experience and sound economic acumen to get Nigeria working again.”
The PDP Presidential candidate stated that Buhari’s “confession of the failed economy has continued to exhibit his cluelessness, incapacity and ineptitude in handling the economy by once again invoking the tired mantra of blaming the past administration and 16 years of PDP rule for his own failure.
“The honourable step to take is for the President to step down from his position. The confession by the President that the economy had gone out of control” was a confirmation of the forecast by the British multinational bank, HSBC “which predicted that re-electing President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 could plunge Nigeria into deeper economic hardship.”
