Buhari not carrying us along in appointment of Ministers – APC chieftains lament

 
buhari appointsA National Working Committee, NWC, member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has disclosed that the party leadership is not being carried along in the appointments so far made by President Muhammadu Buhari, warning of dire consequences that can trigger.
Speaking with ThisDay, the previous night, the NWC member regretted that, “We read in the newspapers like every other Nigerian that President Muhammadu Buhari promised to appoint his ministers this month of September. But we, the leaders of the party are in the dark over the process; the president is not talking to us”.
The party bigwig however warned that the President may have difficulty getting his ministers confirmed by the Senate if leaders of the party are not carried along.
“I am sure the president knows the huge political implications of not carrying leaders of our party along in his ongoing efforts to appoint his ministers. I can tell you confidently that the ministerial list will not pass through the Senate,” the APC source added.
Also speaking with the national daily, erstwhile governor in one of the northern states, now senator categorically noted that: “the president would be signing the death warrant of the APC if he chooses not to carry the party along in his appointment of ministers.
Meanwhile, a source in the presidency noted that though President Buhari once indicated his desire to solely appoint his ministers, that position has since changed, stressing that: “I was in a meeting recently when governors and leaders of the APC met with the president and he promised to carry them along in the process.”
The source further told the newspaper that even though the governors and other party leaders would be allowed to nominate their candidates, “the nomination will finally be cleared by the president because there are many members of the APC who worked against the party during the last general election.’’ posted by www.Alabareport.com
