PDP’s call for Buhari’s resignation a joke – Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai
Mohammed, on Friday said that the call for
resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari by the
Peoples Democratic Party over the economy is
“preposterous”.

Mohammed said, “It is very painful in a situation
where the armed robber is now the one
sympathising with the victim.

“I read in the dailies that the PDP said that the
President must resign because of the economy.
“While we are not going to indulge in blame game,
I think we should also be honest enough to admit
that we will not have been where we are today if
they had done what they ought to do.
“For the party to ask the President to resign is just
a big joke.”
The minister said that though the government was
not interested in blame game, it was important to
set the records straight.
He noted that “agree that Nigeria is not the only
country hit by the recession and crash in price of
crude, but other countries made savings.
“Saudi Arabia today has about 600 billion dollars
in reserve and this is by planning and saving for
the future which the past administration failed to
do during surplus.
“This is not about blaming other administration,
but we believe that one should be honest when
criticising.”
Mohammed then assured that the Federal
Government would do everything possible to bring
the country out of the
economic situation.
The PDP new Media Director, Deji Adeyanju, had in
a statement in Abuja, asked the President to resign
“for destroying” the economy.
Adeyanju was reacting to the data released by the
National Bureau of Statistics issued on Wednesday
which stated that Nigeria was in recession.
