SHOCKING: Buhari’s man drops bombshell, reveals why president must resign now



Former Chief of Army Staff and prominent member of the defunct National Democratic Coalition, Gen. Alani Akinrinade, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign his position if he is too ill to work. 

In an interview with Punch newspaper, Gen. Akinrinade said it is better for the president to resign before his reputation is destroyed or before whatever he has stood for all his life goes up in flames. 

We gathered that Gen Akinrinade noted that Nigeria is not going to disappear if he resigns, adding that he could not imagine the fact that Nigerians have a sick leader and therefore life must stop for more than 170 million people. 

“I am sure he and the people around him know that this is not a sentimental issue. If he is too ill to work, then he should leave (the presidency) and go (resign). It’s better for him to resign before his reputation is destroyed or before whatever he has stood for all his life goes up in flames. “Nigeria is not going to disappear if he resigns. 

I can’t imagine the fact that we have a sick leader and therefore life must stop for more than 170 million people. The issue is too important for somebody to be sentimental about. “He has signed on to something he knows is physically demanding. 

If his health doesn’t give him the strength to do that anymore, he should throw in the towel and tell the people, ‘Sorry, I’m going home. I can’t do this anymore.’ “It is not a good idea in the mess the country is, not to have a leader who talks to us almost every week on important issues – to uplift our spirit. That’s what good leaders do all over the world. 

They uplift the spirit of their people. We’re living in very difficult times. If he cannot have an imprint as a leader, he should just take a walk. He further stated that, “We are living in very interesting time. That statement is the Buhari that I know – that ‘look, if you can’t do the job, get out.’ That’s what he was saying (to Yar’Adua); a man from his own village in Katsina state. “He could have said that about anybody.

But when it is now his turn, that is where I am confused. Why will he not take a walk? No one needs to impeach Buhari. The Buhari I know will say, ‘Look, I am just tired of this job. There is no way I can cope with it anymore. I’m leaving. Let somebody else do the job.’

“You won’t need to push Buhari. He knows when the drummer has stopped beating the drum and then he quits dancing. Again, that is where, for me, the whole confusion starts. I do not see a country in the situation that Nigeria is today.
