The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over what it described as the “dismissive statement by Presidency that Nigerians should wait on God” for solutions to the security challenges bedeviling the nation.
The PDP in a statement on Saturday night by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan argued that the statement has shown that the Buhari administration was completely helpless and come to its end in governance.

The party said the development validated the position of the majority of Nigerians that President Buhari was “grossly incompetent.”
“This statement further goes to confirm that the Buhari’s administration has outlived its usefulness, if it had any, and that the promises and assurances made by President Buhari, on the fight against insecurity amount to mere lip service, the PDP further declared.
“While we believe in the powers and interventions of God, our party restates that such comes with the commitment, determination and show of responsibility on the part of those in leadership position; an obligation in which the Buhari Presidency has completely failed.
“The party notes that the statement has shown clearly that the Buhari administration is completely helpless and has come to its wits end in governance; a development, which validates the position of majority of Nigerians that President Buhari is grossly incompetent and should step aside.
“Our party however urges our gallant and patriotic young men and women in the fronts not to be discouraged by such unguarded statements emanating from certain officials of the Buhari-led APC administration, who appears not to appreciate the sacrifices being made by our troops for the security of our nation,” the party said.
