The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counsels agents of the Buhari

Presidency not to attempt to politicize or trivialize demands by

Nigerians for the resignation of its government as a response to its

verdict, which transcends ethnic, political and religious boundaries,

especially after President Muhammadu Buhari admitted failure by

expressing “surprise” at the level of insecurity across the nation under

its watch.

and resist every attempt that will make it succumb to any form of

harassments, intimidations and innuendos from paid agents and cabal in

the Presidency who have shown that the interest of ordinary Nigerians is
