President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Abukakar Atiku, to sack “Buhari now now.”
Reacting to Atiku’s promise to reward those who contested the presidential ticket with him, Saraki said the comment “shows we now have a politician as an incoming president.”
Saraki called on President Muhammadu Buhari to quit “now now,” to pave way for the assumption of office by Atiku, “now now.”
Sarki said this during a meeting of the PDP BoT members with the presidential candidate Atiku, in Abuja on Friday.
He said, “Buhari must go, now, now, now! His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, should come in now, now, now!
“To hear the Presidential candidate speak of rewarding members shows we now have a politician as an incoming president.
“It gives us the tonic to go out to the field and perform. I can assure you, on behalf of the BOT members that we will give you our total support.
“The meeting with former contestants in the convention, gubernatorial aspirants and stakeholders is sending a strong message across the country that we are united. Just one thing is remaining which to remove the President.”
Present at the well-attended meeting were prominent BoT members including Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, erstwhile Kaduna state governor, Ahmed Makarfi, former Katsina state governor, Ibrahim Shema, ex-Aviation Minister, Kema Chikwe, and former Imo state governor, Achike Udenwa.
