Sequel to the call by the Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Niger Delta Anglican Communion, Reverend Tunde Adeleye, asking President Muhammadu Buhari to resign with immediate effect, over his inability to captain the Nigerian ship effectively, the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO), has described the call by Adeleye as uncalled for, and absolutely unnecessary.
In a statement signed by its Chairman, Niyi Akinsiju, and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the BMO said that we need to inform the Archbishop that on account of President Buhari’s commitment to fight against corruption, more resources are now available for the development projects that directly impact on the people, unlike in the past when greedy and corrupt individuals feasted on the country’s collective patrimony.
“We note that while the bazaar lasted, critical national infrastructure like roads, railways, power and seaports, were left to deteriorate, with the attendant increase in the number of poor people in the country. There was also the sharp drop in the life expectancy of the average Nigerian, to 53 years.
“We wish to recall, that before the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari, the previous PDP Federal Governments, paid only lip-service to poverty alleviation, infrastructural development, and revival of agriculture.
Describing Archbishop Adeleye’s statement as uncalled for and absolutely unnecessary, the group said: “This is essentially the difference that President Muhammadu Buhari is making with the vigor he is attending to these vital areas.”
The group however, urged the Clergy to reflect deeply on the problems confronting the country, to which the President is concentrating his efforts at finding lasting solutions.
