Buhari @76: 'Go Back To Daura And Rest', PDP Tells Buhari
At a time president Muhammadu Buhari was receiving goodwill messages from far and near, cutting cakes and celebrating his 76th birthday, he was also being offered some advice by the opposition party.
The Peoples Democratic Party believes at 76, Buhari should retire to his village home in Daura, Katsina State and take a deserved rest.
The National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said Nigeria do not want a sleeping president.
“We don’t have time to waste anymore. The country cannot afford a sleeping President. President Buhari has done what he could do, but unfortunately, his best is not good enough for the country.
“He told Nigerians about four years ago that old age would slow him down. I’m not sure he is getting younger since he said that. The same President also said that his doctors had asked him to rest, eat and sleep more. As much as he needs all these, we need to tell him that the country cannot afford such a leader at this critical time when all hands must be on deck.
“We have a high number of unemployed youths, citizens and soldiers are being killed by terrorists, the roads are bad, the economy is bad and the President who had been asked to be sleeping is asking for more time. Ask him, more time to do what?” Ologbondiyan said that as a father, the President needs to go home and rest.
Ologbondiyan had earlier in a statement on Monday said the current state of Nigeria had become horrendous for the average Nigerian, adding that rather than continuing as President in 2019, Buhari should go back to his hometown, Daura.
