A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George, has criticized those calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign because of his ill healtth.
George said that it waas wrong, as only God can determine Buhari’s appointed time.
He stated this while speaking to journalists in Lagos on Thursday.
“You see, I don’t support the call by some people that the president should resign because of his health.
“Even though I have always been on different camps with the president, I do not think it is right for anybody to have evil thoughts towards him.
He is ill and we can only wish him good health and pray for him; calling him to resign because of this is getting beyond politics. He is a human being and only God knows the appointed time for everyone.
The Holy Book says we should always pray for people in authority; I think the president deserves everyone’s prayers, not comments that could even outrage some people and create unnecessary tension,” Bode George said.
