A group the Liberal Democratic Movement (LDM), has hailed the statement credited to former President Olusegun Obasanjo on the performance of President Mohammed Buhari.
Rising from its meeting held in Akure, the Ondo state capital, the group aligned with Obasanjo that President Muhammadu Buhari produced some positive results in the areas of the fight against insurgency and the war against corruption. But, if scored him low on the economy.
A communique by its protem chairman, Demola Ijabiyi, and secretary, Oluwadurotimi Akintoye, pointed out that President Muhammadu Buhari has performed below expectation by demonstrating ‘acute nepotism’ and condoning corruption among his close associates and fellow party men.
The group said, it would be a great disservice to the nation for Buhari to aspire for second term in office.
It added: ”We therefore agree with Obasanjo that the APC has lost credibility within our body politic and the only possible alternative, PDP might not be able to face these daunting challenges confronting the nation”.
The group therefore, supported Obasanjo’s call for new political platform through which a new political party can emerge to replace APC and PDP.
