The National Chairman of the National Action Council (NAC), Dr. Olapade Agoro, on Thursday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office immediately, saying the All Progressive Congress (APC) has failed Nigerians.
Agoro, who described the APC as a “den of corrupt politicians” said the presidential assignment given to the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party is an “impossible task of waking the dead.”
He said “no amount of rapprochement would resurrect the party.”
According to Agoro, Nigeria needed new set of leadership to clear the mess foisted on the country by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and APC.
He also criticized former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s third force approach.
The NAC chairman, who spoke in Ibadan, Oyo State, reasoned that if the former South African President, Jacob Zuma, could resign, Buhari has no moral right to stay in office because “his government is more corrupt than that of Zuma.”
He said “the President who is claiming to fight corruption is swimming deeply in corruption.”
He said: “We have instances of many politicians being charged for corruption but instead of clearing themselves, they dumped their parties and joined the APC and that’s the end of the case. What do we say about Mainagate and other corrupt practices worse than that of Abacha? Buhari is a noise maker on the issue of the fight against corruption. He himself is leading a corrupt government.”
