Buhari Has Abandoned Those Who Helped Him Become President- APC Members Grumble

According to a Leadership report, several members of the APC are complaining that President Muhammadu Buhari has used and abandoned them, as far as appointments are concerned.

“APC was formed on five tripods. They are: ACN, ANPP, CPC, Faction of APGA and New PDP. If you look at the appointments done so far, some legacy parties have not gotten the share they deserved,” a member of the APC from the defunct ANPP, Bala Usman said.

He alleged that presently, only former CPC and ACN members were being appointed into Buhari’s government.

He said “The New PDP waxed itself into Leadership of both chambers of the National Assembly, against the powers that be. The former ANPP members are completely relegated and none of its members have been appointed so far into the Buhari government,”

“What is our offence for being an integral party of the merger that formed APC? PMB and others must understand that, if any of the tripods that formed APC had bolted out, APC wouldn’t have been occupying the Villa, but may still be in the courts.” another member said.

However, the National Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Mai Mala Buni said the agitation for appointments is normal in every democratic setting.

“Appointments cannot be done based on legacy parties because we are all one now. All of us dropped our parties to form the APC and we won the election. Luckily, President Muhammadu Buhari is a man of justice and the party is satisfied with all his appointments. More appointments would be done by the president at the appropriate time. We want to call on our party members and Nigeria to support President Muhammadu Buhari to deliver on the Change they have voted for,” he said.
