Dr. Olapade Agoro, National Chairman of the National Action Council (NAC), today Ibadan said President Muhammodu Buhari led government of All Progressives Congress APC have failed Nigeria and should immediately resign just like former President Jacob Zuma of South Africa.
Agoro, who addressed journalists on the state of the nation at his Apata, Ibadan residence advised that President Buhari should immediately tender his resignation letter because he has failed Nigerians in the areas of economy, security and even the fight against corruption.
The NAC’s National Chairman said it was unfortunate that the President, who is claiming to be fighting corruption is swimming deeply in corruption.
He added that the ruling APC has become a “den of corrupt elements” as corrupt politicians who jumped the fence into the political party are left out the hook as soon as they joined the Party.
“Buhari is a noise maker on the issue of the fight against corruption. He himself is leading a corrupt government”, He said.
While lamenting that the almost three years rule of Buhari led APC government is worse than the dark days of Late General Sani Abacha’s rule, Agoro accused Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of wrongly leading Nigerians into the mess.
The NAC’s National Chairman also described “the yeoman task now given to Tinubu by President Buhari to appease APC leaders” as attempting to wake up the dead.
“It is like waking Tinubu to wake up the dead. We heard of a man who woke up the dead, and that man is Jesus Christ. Jesus woke up Lazarus, who was dead for four days. Nowvl President Buhari is asking Tinubu to wake up he APC that has died for almost four years, and has already been buried.
Agoro said ” Tinubu has been given an impossible task. Tinubu has to go from one Nigerian to another, he has to visit every home to appease Nigerians. He wrongly led us into this mess.
“After his defeat in 2011, President Buhari made a vow not to seek Nigerians’ mandate again, but Tinubu surprisingly in 2015 went to Bihari, who is already weak and tired, and used his political machinery to capture power for Buhari.”
He maintained further that the APC National Leader overplayed on his luck when he used his political weight to bring Buhari to power in 2015.
According to him: “President Muhammodu Buhari and the APC the fact must be faced died on arrival year 2015. No one can however deny the fact that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the man of political power machinery of beauty of colour containments this time around wrongly placed his gambles on a dead horse.
On the issue of violent attacks by herdsmen in some parts of the country, Agoro lamented that it was unfortunate that the President hss not deemed it fit to visit Benue state where herders killed 73 Nigerians in an attack.
He said: ” We never seen Fulani herdsmen carrying along Ak47 guns before. Now they are on the rampage killing innocent Nigerians across the country with guns, and the President is hesitant to take necessary action to curb the ugly trend.”
