Buhari Too Should Join Retirees’ Club, PDP Respond To Tinubu Jibe On IBB, Obasanjo
The Peoples Democratic Party says the counsel by the All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, that former President Olusegun Obasanjo and a military dictator, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (retd.), should quit politics and join the retirees’ club, best suits President Muhammadu Buhari.
It noted that Asiwaju Tinubu’s stance completely vindicates the positions of former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida, the PDP as well as majority of Nigerians, who think President Buhari should not seek re-election in 2019.
The PDP, in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, Wednesday said the former Lagos State governor has invariably weighed Buhari and found him unfit to remain in office beyond 2019.
Ologbondiyan said, “Every discerning Nigerian has discovered the fact that Asiwaju Tinubu is subtly passing a critical message to President Buhari and his supporters that he should not contest the 2019 election and that Nigerians have already moved on even without them.
“Even Asiwaju Tinubu knows that President Buhari, for obvious reasons, is the most qualified of all our elder statesmen to join the retiree’s club and save the nation the agony of more years of misrule characterised by untold economic hardship, heavy bloodletting and general indignation.
“The supporters of President Buhari should therefore accept the reality by reading the handwriting on the wall and heed wise counsel from well-meaning Nigerians”.
