Fani-Kayode asks Buhari to resign after congratulating him on his birthday


A former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign as a birthday gift to Nigerians.

Before calling for his resignation, the former minister, however, congratulated the President on his 75th birthday.

Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is seen by many as one of President Buhari’s critics since his party lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 elections.

Meanwhile, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has put away his political variation with the President to congratulate him on his 75th birthday.

The governor also commended the progress made so far by the President in moving Nigeria forward, saying he believes he would do more in good health.

He also called on Nigerians to pray for President Buhari and prayed that God spares his life for the country.

Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, also sent congratulatory messages to the President.

While Saraki wished him the blessings of the Almighty and continued wisdom and grace to celebrate another year, Dogara hailed him for his leadership.

    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.

    Under his leadership, Nigeria is steadily regaining its past glory, winning investors’ confidence and earning global respect and recognition. He has remained consistent in dealing with corruption, insecurity and unemployment through various reforms and interventions. #PMBAt75
