Why Buhari should emulate Zuma by resigning – ADP


The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has advised President Buhari to emulate the immediate past President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, who resigned over his recall by his country’s governing party, the African National Congress (ANC).

ADP, in a statement on Thursday by its Lagos spokesperson, Prince Adelaja Adeoye, noted that Buhari should go because Nigerians are tired of under-development under him.

ADP said, “ANC is a party of notable politicians who cannot be intimidated by their president or other elective leaders, unlike the Nigeria’s governing All Progressives Congress (APC) filled with sycophants.

“Party leaders have turned themselves to “yes men” for a president they are supposed to hold accountable, make sure he delivers and ensure that he does not derail the country’s democracy.”

The party recalled that it had made several calls, counseling the president to quietly step down and allow another Nigerian with the capacity to govern.

Adelaja stressed further that the widespread violence, ethnic clashes, and unabated spread of poverty due to the bad economy in the country is alarming.

ADP hailed South Africans “for speaking in one voice and not allowing politicians to divide them with religion or ethnicity because no matter where a bad leader comes from, all citizens suffer the misrule.”

It said Nigerians have a lot to learn from Zimbabwe, South Africa and other countries who changed leaders that have disappointed them.

“President Buhari should see his position as a privilege to serve; it is not his birth right. If the same people who shouted “Sai Baba” and elected him are saying enough is enough, he should heed their calls and not turn himself into a sit tight leader.”

ADP charged credible and competent Nigerians to begin to show interest in 2019 election and warned INEC that any conduct below free and fair polls in 2019 would be resisted.
