Nigeria’s main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says that President Muhammadu Buhari is too weak to rule the country.
This was said by the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus during the party’s presidential campaign in Kaduna on Thursday at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium.
Secondus said that Buhari had done the best he could and should go home and rest. He added that Buhari’s re-election would mean the government would be handed over to the cabal.
Speaking at the PDP rally in Kaduna, he said, “Now is the time for you to take a stand and firmly too, to know that it is time for us to ask President Buhari to go home. Let him go home. Baba has tried. Let him go home. The energy is no longer there. And we know that by the grace of God, we need somebody with a lot of energy. We need somebody who will work for 24 hours.
“We don’t need Buhari to give this government to a cabal. If you vote for the APC, the cabal will still be in control. There will be hunger in the land. The man is weak. President Buhari is weak. He cannot rule. We advise him to go home.
“They have been sleeping on duty, that is why we have security problem in the country. They have been sleeping; that is why we have hunger in the land. Now, it is time for us to ask President Buhari to go home. Let him go home, he has tried.
“We need somebody who has experience in the private and public sectors with a lot of capacity and competence. When Atiku comes, he will provide jobs and food on your tables.”
Mr Secondus warned against attempts to rig in the forthcoming elections.
“Never again will anybody rig the election in Nigeria. INEC, be warned; you can’t rig this election”, he said.
The PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar said he would fight insecurity and restore Nigeria back on the track of progress when he becomes president.
He said, “The APC lied to Nigerians. They promised to revamp the economy in 2015. Today, Nigeria is said to be the headquarters of poverty. The APC promised to tackle security challenges if elected but have they fulfilled the promise? Today, there are security challenges in the North-West, North-East and the North-Central.”
Also speaking at the rally was Senate President and Atiku Campaign Organisation DG, Dr Bukola Saraki who mentioned that the ruling APC was running out of lies.
“Today in Nigeria and the entire North, there is no security. No jobs. Many years and months of lies, the truth must come out. Nigerians are seeing the truth now.
“The APC promised us security but today, there is no security in the North-East, North-West and the North-Central. They promised us jobs but today, we have lost 10 million jobs; no jobs for the nation’s youths.”
