Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister and chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, as asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign as a birthday gift to Nigerians.
Before calling for his resignation, the two-time former minister, however, congratulated the president on his 75th birthday.
@MBuhari on his 75th birthday even though I disagree with him on virtually everything and I deplore his agenda and ways,” Chief Fani-Kayode wrote.
“I believe that he has been a disaster as president and that the best birthday gift he can give the Nigerian people is his resignation letter.”
Fani-Kayode, a leading opposition figure, is one of Buhari’s fiercest critics.
I congratulate @MBuhari on his 75th birthday even though I disagree with him on virtually everything and I deplore his agenda and ways. I believe that he has been a disaster as Pres. and that the best birthday gift he can give the Nigerian people is his resignation letter.
