A People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has thrown his weight behind the call by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that President Muhammadu Buhari should go and rest after the end of his first tenure.
Onuesoke, a philanthropist, in reaction to Obasanjo’s Tuesday’s comment, said the current security and economic logjam are enough indices for Buhari and his APC government to quit the stage before further damage is done to the country.
“I said it on his (PMB) 75 years birthday on the 28th of December, 2017 that he should resign as president and go and rest.
“What Obasanjo said is not new to me. As for Buhari, he is overdue for retirement.
“With the present insecurity in the county, he doesn’t need anyone to tell or advise him to do the needful.
“Imagine the persistent long queues of fuel, imagine the hard state of living, imagine the killings, imagine the slow pace of the economy, he doesn’t need a soothsayer to tell him to resign.
“Even his APC party is tired of his snail movement towards fixing the numerous setbacks the nation is drifting towards. If he doesn’t resign now, I am very sure NASS will do so very soon.
“I know one thing about Buhari, he will resign very soon. And it was the same Buhari who promised one tenure so what is he waiting for before he will resign?” the former governorship aspirant, noted.
