Finally, Buhari Opens Up On His Resignation

President Muhammadu Buhari has on Friday, September 2,  said that he is not yet ready to tender his resignation letter, despite the economic recession hovering all over the nation.

Buhari, who made this revelation through the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, maintained that the call for Buhari’s resignation by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over the current economic crisis, is “preposterous”.

Mohammed said, “It is very painful in a situation where the armed robber is now the one sympathising with the victim.

“I read in the dailies, that the PDP said that the President must resign, because of the economy.

“While we are not going to indulge in blame game, I think we should also be honest enough, to admit that we will not have been where we are today, if they had done what they ought to do.

“For the party to ask the President to resign, is just a big joke”.

The Minister, said that though the government was not interested in blame game, it was important to set the records straight.

He noted that, “Nigeria is not the only country hit by the recession and crash in price of crude, but other countries made savings.

“Saudi Arabia today, has about 600 billion dollars in reserve, and this is by planning and saving for the future, which the past administration failed to do during surplus.

“This is not about blaming other administrations, but we believe that one should be honest when criticising”‎.

Mohammed, then assured that the Federal Government would do everything possible to bring the country out of the economic situation.

Earlier, the PDP new Media Director, Deji Adeyanju, had in a statement in Abuja, asked the President to resign, “for destroying” the economy.

Recall, that Adeyanju was reacting to the data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, issued on Wednesday, which stated that Nigeria was in recession.
