The Peoples Democratic Party has said Bola Tinubu’s counsel that former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida should quit politics and join the retirees’ club is best suited for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The opposition party said, “President Buhari ought to step aside largely due to his inability to connect with the social and economic realities and speed of the current generation”.
“Asiwaju Tinubu is proverbially passing a message to President Buhari and his supporters on the fact that their candidate no longer enjoy mass acceptance among Nigerians ahead of the 2019 general elections.
“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.
PDP said Buhari should retire “to save the nation the agony of more years of misrule characterized by untold economic hardship, heavy bloodletting and general indignation”.
“In any case, the APC is already on a death throe, having led the worst government in the history of our nation and will end up as the first party in government at the centre that will be rejected by Nigerians at a second attempt.”
