The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told President Muhammadu Buhari, to abandon his second term bid and accept defeat from a candidate to be fielded under the platform of the PDP.
In a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan, the former ruling party once again slammed the Buhari-led administration for the economic hardship currently witnessed by Nigerians, nepotism, violence, and incessant bloodletting across the country.
“President Buhari, by now, ought to have known that such theatrics, simulated by his handlers, cannot help his image or reverse the determination of Nigerians to vote him out in 2019.
“This is a leader who declared his interest to contest, months ago, without talking about PVCs or engaging in any form of voter education, only for him to suddenly wake up to the reality of the mass wave of PVC collection by Nigerians.
“In fact, it appears that Mr. President just started hearing the drumbeat by Nigerians, expressing their dissatisfaction with his incompetence, as well as the corruption and insensitivity of his leadership to their plight as citizens.
“The shock that awaits Mr. President will be an inescapable mortifying electoral loss in places he currently boasts of as his political stronghold, as even the people around him today have since deserted him within and only waiting for 2019 to free themselves from the stranglehold of his misrule” the statement added.
