A second republic senator has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately resign from office and not wait until the coming general elections. Professor Banji Akintoye made the call on Wednesday during his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today. The former associate of late Obafemi Awolowo believes the President does not have the ability to manage the country’s economy, saying he would advise him to quit his job if he had the opportunity to meet him.
He noted that Nigeria has been evaluated as one of the countries with the highest rate of poverty, as well as one of the nations where citizens have the least access to basic amenities. “This president does not seem to know or understand Nigeria, does not seem to care about the suffering of people, and has no clue at all about managing the economy,” said Professor Akintoye.
