The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has again asked President Muhammadu Buhari to quit his position as the Minister of Petroleum Resources, in view of the lingering fuel crisis in the country.
Recall, that this is not the first time the PDP and several other concerned Nigerians have called on Buhari to resign as Petroleum Minister.
The party in a statement on Sunday, by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said Buhari has “failed” to address the lingering fuel crisis, and should accept responsibility for the “manifest failure in the oil sector.”
The opposition party stated that the President should hand over the office to a more competent person to steer its affairs, in order to alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians, and improve the state of the nation’s economy.
”As we speak, the economy has further dipped in the last two months of this harrowing fuel situation; more businesses have folded up, prices of essential goods are skyrocketing, and families are more than ever before, under the intense pressure of meeting economic demands.
“We call on President Buhari to quit this all-important Ministry of Petroleum Resources, and allow competent hands to save our people from the anguish and pains they have been subjected to in the last few months
”It is disheartening that instead of being remorseful for its failures, the APC-controlled Federal Government is busy dishing out lies and fabricated indices, in an attempt to give Nigerians false hope on issues related to the fuel crisis and the collapsing national economy.
“If President Buhari had to heed wise counsel from well-meaning Nigerians, since last year, to quit office as the Minister of Petroleum and allow a more competent and knowledgeable person to run the Ministry, the situation would not have degenerated to excruciating pains Nigerians suffer today”, the PDP said.
