A Pressure group affiliated with the former ruling political party People’s Democratic Party (PDP), known as People’s Democratic Media Watchdog has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to resign after the president reportedly said that age might limit his performance in office.
In a statement issued by one Tunde Lawal on behalf of the group, the PDP said:
The PDP is again vindicated by this confession from President Muhammadu Buhari and many more that are yet to come. Nigerians will recall that during the presidential campaigns, the PDP and other well-meaning Nigerians complained on the choice of sponsoring Pa. Muhammadu Buhari as Presidential Candidate of APC and the effect it will have on the country when it comes to managing the affairs of a multi-dimensional nation like Nigeria, but the APC and its leaders said that age is just a number.It’s barely three weeks into the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and his age is already telling on him, so, what will happen to Nigeria in the remaining 1,440 days of this government. It’s better to find a black goat in the day time rather than looking for it in the night and this is why we are asking President Buhari to resign now because Nigerians will not entertain further excuses of why the APC cannot deliver on their campaign promises.
The People’s Democratic Media Watchdog also blamed President Buhari‘s mistake in Germany on his age.
