WAR!!! President Muhammadu Buhari’s Call For Immediate Resignation, Tears PDP, APC, Apart, As Top Party Chieftains Exchange Blows

There was an exchange of hot words between the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, over President Muhammadu Buhari’s real date of birth, on Tuesday night.

The fight was triggered by the President himself, over his declaration that he had all the while believed he was 74 years old this year, until he was being told that he actually was 75 years old this year, with the PDP calling for his immediate resignation.

The party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Diran Odeyemi, in Osogbo, Osun State, described the President’s utterance as a “national disgrace”.

However, APC National Chairman, John Oyegun, said the call for the President’s resignation by the PDP, was “totally stupid and unnecessary”, insisting that the opposition party lacked “the morality to see the innocence in Buhari’s admittance.”

The PDP claimed that many Nigerians and the global community were taken aback, that a 21st-century Leader of a country like Nigeria, did not know his real year of birth.

“How many other inconsistencies are in Mr. President’s biodata submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)? We are sure there are more. And the world is waiting on the body to give details about our President”, the party said.

Odeyemi continued: “We advise INEC to revisit those forms President Buhari filled in all elections he had participated in, especially those he filled before the 2015 elections, to unearth other inconsistencies therein.

“In a normal clime, an electoral umpire would have set in motion verification modalities, to avoid further national embarrassment and expose Mr. President.

“Come to think of it, a Leader that does not know his real age, could not be said to have sound knowledge of the people and country he governs, let alone knowing the peculiarities of the governed. This is simply not the kind of president Nigeria needs at the moment.”

The party stressed further that: “Not too long ago, Nigeria became a laughing stock with the inappropriate designation of the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, as President of West Germany, by President Buhari.

“We recall President Buhari once admitted that his age would slow down his performance in office. For a country that could fall into emergency situation anytime, like the present government-failing induced fuel scarcity, we do not need a President that forgets things easily.

“We advise Mr. President to consider turning in his resignation letter, to avoid further slowing down the country because of his age, and to also save our corporate image as a country that has a President with occasional memory failure.”

Reacting, Oyegun responded: “The comment by Mr. President was too minor an issue for discussion. Why should we start debating over his one-year difference in age?

“What should interest anybody, is the share honesty and simplicity of that man. The man is so simple, so unassuming, so straightforward, and that should be what people should admire. How many Nigerians are like that?

“If PDP is calling for his resignation, it is because they do not have any rectitude and morality to see anything significant in President Buhari’s statement, and what it says about the man.

“They are in an entirely different world that lacks total morality, and any reference to truth. They do not know anything about truth anymore.

“I repeat, it should not be subject to any discussion. It was such a waste of energy.”

Speaking earlier, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said that the ruling party was not obliged to react to everything from the PDP:

“I do not want to react to such a thing. Must I react to every statement and issue from the PDP? The man was talking about his health, and said that he thought he was 74 years.

“What does that mean? Do they want to say that the man is no longer qualified to be the President of Nigeria, because of that? My reaction is that I do not feel obliged to respond to every statement, whether it makes sense or not.”
