Nigeria’s boisterous Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has taken a rude swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for daring to call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari over the nation’s failing economy.

The one time All Progressive Congreess (APC) propagandist described the statement made by the PDP as “preposterous”.

Speaking at a forum on Friday in Abuja, Mohammed said: “It is very painful in a situation where the armed robber is now the one sympathising with the victim.

“I read in the dailies that the PDP said that the President must resign because of the economy.

“While we are not going to indulge in blame game, I think we should also be honest enough to admit that we will not have been where we are today if they had done what they ought to do.

“For the party to ask the President to resign is just a big joke.”

The minister noted: “Agreed that Nigeria is not the only country hit by the recession and crash in price of crude, but other countries made savings.

“Saudi Arabia today has about $600 billion in reserve and this is by planning and saving for the future, which the past administration failed to do during surplus.

“This is not about blaming other administration, but we believe that one should be honest when criticising.”

Mohammed then assured Nigerians that the Federal Government would do everything possible to bring the country out of the economic situation.

Recall that the PDP new Media Director, Deji Adeyanju, had in a statement in Abuja called for the resignation of President Buhari, who was elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, “for destroying” the economy.

Adeyanju was reacting to the data released by the National Bureau of Statistics issued on Wednesday, which stated that Nigeria was in recession.
