The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, says it has no response yet to the statement by former President Olusegun Obasanjo asking President Muhammadu Buhari not to seek re-election.
Obasanjo in a statement on Tuesday entitled “The Way Out: A Clarion Call for Coalition for Nigeria Movement”, said Buhari and his party, APC, had become a disappointment, faltering even in the major boast of his administration – anti-corruption campaign.
Obasanjo also slammed Buhari for his “poor understanding” of Nigeria’s social-political dynamics, saying his leadership has widened division and inequality in the country.
Reacting, Bolaji Abdullahi, spokesperson for the APC, said the ruling party would respond at the right time.
“The situation is that APC does not have a response at this time,” he said.
“Maybe if we are given the opportunity to study the letter more closely, we will have a response.”
Abdullahi added that the party had only “relied on what is being circulated in the media.”
“I will not be able to react to any content of the statement until we have the opportunity to study it.”
