Governor Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko, of Sokoto state has advised president Goodluck Jonathan to resign and tender apology to Nigerians for failing them.
This the governor said, with a view to the lingering crises that had crippled the country development in various areas.
Wamakko made this known while speaking with the journalists at the Government House, Sokoto. He said that the country had retrogressed in many respects, hence it's time for the president vacate the scene for a more capable leader to move the country forward.
"If I am asked to advise President Goodluck Jonathan on his re-election bid in a simple language, I will tell him to resign and apologize to Nigerians for his failure. "This is my candid opinion as a patriotic citizen who believes in the advancement of the country," Wamaakko said
He strongly maintained that Nigerians are in some dire need of change, adding that Jonathan has failed the country in all respects. He said that what Nigeria need now is a change and nothing short of that.
Without mincing words, the governor urged president Jonathan to vacate the seat and give way for a competent president to move the country forward; while you apologize to the people too.
According to him, this is the yearning and expectation of the majority of Nigerians and that adhering to that would further promote democracy, freedom and sense of belonging which are the ideals of the All Progressives Congress (APC)
