Keyamo said such a call can never be obeyed, adding that the opposition was only asking President Buhari to do more in meeting the yearnings of Nigerians.
The minister in a series of tweets wrote:
“Campaign periods are times for attacks, propaganda, bickerings and recriminations by ALL SIDES struggling to get hold of the minds of voters.
“When campaigns are over, it is one country, one people & we must all get off our high horses & begin to respect the views of one another
“The hullabaloo over the call by the opposition for the resignation of the President is unnecessary. It’s the usual singsong of opposition all over the world.
“They know it’s not going to happen. It’s just a way of telling govt to do more and we in govt. should see it in that light.”
