A group, Wailing Wailers has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to resign honourably due to the economic crisis in the country.
The group also said that Buhari has been rejected by the same people who voted for him in 2015.
The Wailing Wailers made the comments after some youths in Sokoto urged former president, Goodluck Jonathan to return to office.
Read the group’s statement, released by Acting National Publicity Secretary, Usman Abubakar, below:
He (Buhari) has been rejected by the same people who massively voted him in in 2015.
We are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari for the second time within the week to honorably resign and return back to his farm in Daura for retirement.
It is glaring that Mr. President does not have any solution to the lingering economic woes, hardship and suffering that has befallen the country. We cannot continue to take it that all is well when the economic situation in the country is critically disastrous.
Just days ago, reports showed that Nigeria’s inflation has risen to 11 years record breaking 18.3%. In the history of Nigeria, the last time we experienced hyper-inflation, depression, recession and famine was when Buhari brutally upset a civil rule and took over powers in 1984.
The repeat of 1984 brutal and violent rulership is panning out in 2016, it is quite unfortunate that students of history jettisoned all they knew about Buhari and packaged him as a reformed democrat. We are happy in a way that all those that propped him up and elevated him to Aso Rock are now in deep regret.
Those that supported him out of ethnic and religious sentiments are now aware of the gravest mistake as Hunger, Starvation and poverty does not respect ethnic group or religion, but, it is being exerted on all and sundry. It is in evidence that Nigerian people are totally ill-fated with Buhari.
This is why we are calling out that Mr President should tow a very noble and honorable path by resigning and hand over powers to the National Assembly.
We called for his resignation on Tuesday, little did we know that the Sokoto and other Northern states’ people are also demanding his resignation.
This was obviously demonstrated when the former President of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan paid a condolence visit to sympathize with the family of the late Dasuki, in Sokoto State.
It is on reports that the residents thronged out in their thousands with placards chanting “Baba Jonathan Please Come Back.” Truthfully speaking, if the country is moving in the right direction, no one will care about the rejected stone, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
