The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to the call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
While reacting to President Buhari’s claim that he thought he was 74 years old until he was told he was 75, the main opposition party had advised him to turn in his resignation.
The PDP also described the statement as a national disgrace, while calling on INEC to revisit Buhari’s files.
Responding to the PDP’s statement, the National Chairman of the APC, chief John Odigie-Oyegun said the PDP lacked the morality to demand Buhari’s resignation.
He also said the PDP was calling for Buhari’s resignation because they don’t have rectitude and morality to see anything tangible in his statement.
He said, “The comment by Mr. President was too minor an issue for discussion. Why should we start debating over his one-year difference in age?
“What should interest anybody is the share honesty and simplicity of that man. The man is so simple, so unassuming, so straightforward and that should be what people should admire. How many Nigerians are like that?
“If PDP is calling for his resignation, it is because they don’t have any rectitude and morality to see anything significant in President Buhari’s statement and what it says about the man.
“They are in an entirely different world that lacks total morality and any reference to truth. They don’t know anything about truth any more.
“I repeat it should not be subject to any discussion. It was such a waste of energy.”
