Return To Daura To Rest As Adviced, PDP Tells Buhari On 76th Birthday

The Peoples Democratic Party on Monday advised President Muhammadu Buhari to return to his house in Daura and take a deserved rest.

Responding to Buhari’s plea for more time to fix the nation, the PDP said the job of returning the country to the path of glory would not be given to a man who had been asked to always sleep and rest.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, told one of Punch correspondents that the President should return to his house in Daura, Katsina State, where he said he (President Buhari) should take a deserved rest.

He said, “We don’t have time to waste anymore. The country cannot afford a sleeping President. President Buhari has done what he could do, but unfortunately, his best is not good enough for the country.



“He told Nigerians about four years ago that old age would slow him down. I’m not sure he is getting younger since he said that. The same President also said that his doctors had asked him to rest, eat and sleep more. As much as he needs all these, we need to tell him that the country cannot afford such a leader at this critical time when all hands must be on deck.

“We have a high number of unemployed youths, citizens and soldiers are being killed by terrorists, the roads are bad, the economy is bad and the President who had been asked to be sleeping is asking for more time. Ask him, more time to do what?” Ologbondiyan said that as a father, the President needs to go home and rest.

Ologbondiyan had earlier in a statement on Monday said the current state of Nigeria had become horrendous for the average Nigerian, adding that rather than continuing as President in 2019, Buhari should go back to his hometown, Daura.
