National Chairman of the National Action Council (NAC), Dr Olapade Agoro on Thursday said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is dead, buried and cannot be awaken by the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu led reconciliation committee.
Dr Agoro who stated this in Ibadan while addressing a press conference on the state of the nation asked President Muhammadu Buhari to emulate the immediate past President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma and resign from office because his administration has failed Nigerians.
The NAC former Presidential candidate stressed that with the assignment given to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, it was glaring that without mincing words, ” President Buhari is asking Asiwaju Tinubu to wake up he APC that has died for almost four years, and has already been buried.”
“It is like asking Tinubu to wake up the dead. We heard of a man who woke up the dead, and that man is Jesus Christ. Jesus woke up Lazarus, who was dead for four days. Now, President Buhari is asking Tinubu to wake up the APC that has died for almost four years, and has already been buried.” he said.
Dr Agoro while lamenting that as far as he is concened, the almost three years rule of the President Buhari led APC government “is worse than the dark days of Late General Sani Abacha’s rule,” accused Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of wrongly leading Nigerians into the present mess.
” Tinubu has been given an impossible task. Tinubu has to go from one Nigerian to another, he has to visit every home to appease Nigerians. He wrongly led us into this mess. After his defeat in 2011, President Buhari made a vow not to seek Nigerians’ mandate again, but Tinubu surprisingly in 2015 went to Bihari, who is already weak and tired, and used his political machinery to capture power for Buhari.”
The NAC National leader said Asiwaju Tinubu allegedly overplayed on his luck when he used his political weight to bring President Buhari to power in 2015, saying, “If the fact must be faced, APC and its government died on arrival in year 2015. No one can however deny the fact that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the man of political power machinery of beauty of colour containments this time around wrongly placed his gambles on a dead horse.”
Speaking further, Dr Agoro, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately resign just like former President Jacob Zuma of South Africa as President Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) government have failed Nigerians in the areas of economy, security and even the fight against corruption.
The NAC leader maintained that it was unfortunate that the ruling APC has become a “den of corrupt elements” as corrupt politicians who jumped the fence into the political party are left out the hook as soon as they joined the party.
Buhari is a noise maker on the issue of the fight against corruption. He himself is leading a corrupt government”,
