TheCable - Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, says the call for resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the economy is “preposterous”.
Speaking in Abuja on Friday at a forum organised by the NAN, Mohammed lamented that PDP, the “armed robber” was sympathising with the victim, APC.
“It is very painful in a situation where the armed robber is now the one sympathising with the victim,” he said.
“I read in the dailies that the PDP said that the president must resign because of the economy.
“While we are not going to indulge in blame game, I think we should also be honest enough to admit that we will not have been where we are today if they had done what they ought to do. For the party to ask the president to resign is just a big joke.”
The minister said that although the government was not interested in blame game, it was important to set the records straight.

Mohammed said the federal government would do everything possible to bring the country out of the

Adeyanju was reacting to the data released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) issued on Wednesday, which confirmed that Nigeria is in recession.
