The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, has insisted that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not resign due to the nation’s economic distress, experienced by Nigerians.

The Minister stated this in a statement by his Media Special Assistant, Rabiu Ibrahim while reacting to governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who called on the president to resign because of hardship facing the country.

According to him, the call by the governors of the opposition party was nothing but an attempt at distraction by people, who should be happy supporting the president efforts at bringing economic relief to Nigerian people.

He noted that the PDP and its governors should not be seeking through the back door of intimidation, what they have consistently failed to achieve by democratic means since 2015.

“Those who could not bring transformational change when they had a lengthy chance to, should not seek to interrupt or distract those who are busy at work on the presidential vision that Nigerians elected them to implement.

“The administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has also since inceptiion, generously extended financial support to all the state governments, regardless of partisan affiliation. In addition, the removal of the petrol subsidy which incidentally was one of the main planks of the PDP Presidential Campaign has swelled the revenues of all the state’s, including the PDP states. To whom more has been given, more is therefore expected”, he stated.

He explained that the president and his administration recognise the unfinished business of revamping the national economy which was kick-started by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, through programmes focused on large scale infrastructure, social welfare, priotizing the equipping and welfare of the military and security agencies, and reclaiming Nigeria:s stategic place in the comity of nations.

Idris said Boko Haram and its affiliates, on the ascendancy in 2014/2015, had since been decimated, and similar bold gains are now being made with bandits and other criminals, stressing that Nigerians had not forgotten that it was the APC administration that cleared several liabilities left behind by the PDP government.
