“As things stand in the country right now, Nigerians may not remember Mr. President’s resignation from office. They may only remember him when there is uncertainty, corruption and hardship. Please, Mr President, use the remaining months to correct Nigeria and put Nigeria back on the path of progress, unity and development,” Aji said.
