Obasanjo-Backed ADC Replies Buhari

Opposition political parties have reacted to claims by President Muhammadu Buhari that he lacked the resources to match the opposition.

They say Buhari should just admit that he has not been able to meet the expectations of Nigerians and as such he's afraid the people won't vote for him.

The African Democratic Congress (ADC) said the President’s statement is evidence that he has now realised that Nigerians especially the youth have left him.

The National Publicity Secretary of the ADC, Chief Anayo Arinze, told Punch, “The President’s statement is a statement made by a man that is already jittery that power is slipping out of his hands. It is the same feeling that made him go outside this country to describe our youths as lazy when he saw they have deserted him, he quickly signed the Not-Too-Young-To-Run Bill with a caveat that they should not contest against him.

“What we truly have in terms of resources is the support of Nigerians. He should take a second look at former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter.”
