Some APC Leaders are Not Happy with Buhari (See Reasons)


A storm appears to be brewing in the camp of the All Progressives Congress as some party members are said to be infuriated at President Muhammadu  Buhari’s refusal to dismiss some political appointees.

The APC chieftains are calling  for the immediate sacking of Goodluck Jonathan's appointees that are PDP members and also asked that they be replaced by members of the ruling party, APC.

Also, some party chieftains have also accused the President of not helping the party with money.

A chieftain of the APC, who pleaded anonymity told Punch that the party has not benefitted anything from the Buhari government since he assumed power eight months ago.

He continued that it would appear the president was rewarding members of the PDP while handling out the punitive measures to members of his own party, the APC.

He said, “President Buhari took over on May 29, and has not rewarded APC members. Most of the heads of departments and agencies are members of PDP who worked for Jonathan. Example; Onyeka Onwenu is still DG of the National Women Centre, Mike Omeri is still DG of National Orientation Agency.

“A former Special Adviser to Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Mr. Ima Niboro, is still the MD of the News Agency of Nigeria while Sola Omole is still the Director-General of Nigeria Television Authority.

“There are almost 100 ambassadorial positions that are supposed to have been filled but these people are still occupying the offices. We are not asking for security or sensitive positions but all these appointments I mentioned are not statutory but merely political.

“Our people who worked so hard and spent money on Buhari’s campaign are languishing. There are many competent people in the APC.”
