The PPA chieftain noted that the president Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government had performed below the expectations of Nigerians and had also failed in its campaign promises and should be removed from power.
He also observed that though President Muhammadu Buhari has the constitutional right to re-contest, he should not do so.
He said that it was better for Buhari to retire with the last vestiges of respect and honour.
He added that the APP would also ensure that June 12 was approved by the National Assembly as the national democracy day.
“This Bill which has been drafted and captioned June 12 Bill, will be presented to the Parliament once we are elected in 2019,’’ he said.
He said that APP would stand against tenure elongation and change of Constitution by sit-tight leaders in African countries and dictatorship in the continent if elected.
“Nigeria shall more resolutely intervene on behalf of the people of Africa where there are violation and abuse of human rights and dignity.
“We will no longer sit and allow some dictators continue to rape the dignity of their people and subject their citizenry to all sorts of human suffering,” the chairman said.
