Why Tinubu will not resign despite economic hardship – Idris

In a statement on Sunday, February 18, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris gave reasons President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not resign in spite of the economic hardship facing Nigeria.

This response was a reaction to the call by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors that Tinubu should resign if he cannot offer solutions to the hardship Nigeria is facing.

Idris in his statement by his special assistant in the media, Rabiu Ibrahim, said the call for Tinubu’s resignation is nothing but a distraction by “people who should instead be busy supporting the President’s efforts at bringing economic relief to the Nigerian people”.

The minister’s statement partly reads: “President Tinubu is not and will never be overwhelmed by the current challenges the country is facing. He will not abdicate his responsibilities. He will courageously continue to wrestle with the challenges and surmount them, laying a durable foundation for the new Nigeria that is emerging. “He has also never shied away from acknowledging the pain of ongoing reforms, and has seized every opportunity to assure Nigerians that inside the pain of the reforms lie the seeds of lasting prosperity and national development.

“To the PDP governors, let us reiterate: This is not the time for distraction. It is time instead for the rolling up of sleeves, to support and complement the hard work of the President and his administration.”
