2019: President Buhari Urged To Leave Seat For Younger Person
Labour Party (LP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to leave the presidential seat for a younger person to direct the affairs of the nation.
This follows the recent announcement of President Buhari to see reelection in the 2019 Presidential elections.
In a statement from the factional National chairman of the party, Dr. Mike Omotosho, the party noted that Buhari’s old age may deny him the energy needed to govern the country.
“President Buhari may have given his best, but the encumbrances of old age may have conspired to deny him the energy, tact and strategy needed to extricate the nation from economic doldrums,” Labour Party noted.
The statement further read: “Labour is prompted to react to the recent declaration of President Buhari to seek reelection in 2019, on the basis of what we consider as far-reaching implications this decision may have on the destiny of Nigeria.
“Even as we acknowledge the constitutional right of President Buhari to seek reelection, Labour Party, wishes to state unequivocally that the three years of the APC and President Buhari’s mandate have, in all honesty, and by all empirical statistics, reduced the vibrant and energetic people of Nigeria to paupers. We, therefore, advise the president and his colleagues in the old brigade to quit the stage for the young men and women.
“The indices of a deteriorating economy, the fast disappearing business environment, predicated on poor policy formulation and unimaginative interpretation of economic variables, have produced unenviable records for the Nigerian citizens.”
