The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Media Watchdog has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to resign after the President reportedly said that his age would limit his performance in office.

The group further described Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a gang of hypocrites and liars.

This was contained in a statement released on Wednesday, June 17, 2015, by Tunde Lawal on the group’s behalf.

It reads:

“The PDP is again vindicated by this confession from President Muhammadu Buhari and many more that are yet to come. Nigerians will recall that during the presidential campaigns, the PDP and other well-meaning Nigerians complained on the choice of sponsoring Pa. Muhammadu Buhari as Presidential Candidate of APC and the effect it will have on the country when it comes to managing the affairs of a multi-dimensional nation like Nigeria, but the APC and its leaders said that age is just a number.”

“It's barely three weeks into the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and his age is already telling on him, so, what will happen to Nigeria in the remaining 1,440 days of this government. It's better to find a black goat in the day time rather than looking for it in the night and this is why we are asking President Buhari to resign now because Nigerians will not entertain further excuses of why the APC cannot deliver on their campaign promises.”

Buhari had made the comment on Monday, June 15, 2015, while speaking to a group of Nigerians resident in South Africa.
