The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has stated that the recent statement allegedly made by US President Donald Trump was a clear indication that Nigeria was running on autopilot.
Trump was reported to have described President Muhammadu Buhari as a lifeless president.
In statement on Monday by its spokesperson, Ikenga Ugochinyere, the coalition said the statement by the US President was a awake up call to Nigerians to vote out Buhari.
He said: “The verdict of the President of the United States of America Mr. Donald Trump published in Financial Times describing President Muhammadu Buhari as a lifeless leader who does not understand the issues of governance is another affirmation of the widely held beliefs that Nigeria is running on autopilot and in danger of being thrown off the cliff by the crass incompetence of Mr. President.
“In a Statement by the 1st National Spokesman of CUPP, Ikenga IMO Ugochinyere the Coalition called the verdict of Mr. Trump the last awakening call for Nigerians to go and collect their PVC’s to enable them perform the patriotic duty of electing a President in 2019 who understands what the issues are.
“If President Trump took only one meeting to identify the huge problem we have been harping upon, then the world needs to pity Nigerians who have been bearing with a “lifeless” President for over three years.
“Nigeria today is worse on economic indices than we were in 2015 and the national cohesion and peace accentuated by the seamless concession of victory by former president Goodluck Jonathan has been lost on the altar of nepotism, cronyism and ethnic supremacy being exhibited by President Buhari.
“The fabrics of our nationhood has been eroded by the myopic and divisive views of the President.”
