The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has described the call by Reverend Tunde Adeleye on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign as uncalled for and absolutely unnecessary.
Reacting to the call by Adeleye, the Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Niger Delta of the Anglican Communion, BMO stated that majority of Nigerians are in full support of President Buhari given his numerous achievements in the last four years.
In a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, BMO said Adeleye’s angst stemmed from the inability of the few privileged Nigerians who had, over the years, pillaged the economy of the country, to continue their stealing.
“We note that while the bazaar lasted, critical national infrastructure like roads, railways, power and seaports were left to deteriorate, with the attendant increase in the number of poor people in the country. There was also the sharp drop in the life expectancy of the average Nigerian to 53 years.
“We wish to recall that before the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari, the previous PDP federal governments paid only lip-service to poverty alleviation, infrastructural development and revival of agriculture.
“This is essentially the difference that President Muhammadu Buhari is making with the vigor he is attending to these vital areas.
“We also need to inform the Archbishop that on account of President Buhari’s commitment to the fight against corruption, more resources are now available for development projects that impact directly on the people unlike in the past when greedy and corrupt individuals feasted on the country’s collective patrimony.”
BMO then urged the clergy to reflect deeply on the problems confronting the country to which the president is concentrating his efforts at finding lasting solutions. “We expect that as a clergyman Archbishop Adeleye will use his position to pray for the success of the Buhari administration, for the benefit of all citizens. We also enjoin him and other clergymen in the country to key into the various efforts of the federal government to reposition the country, especially as their achievements are glaring to all Nigerians.
