APC Will Not Meddle In Buhari’s Selection Of Ministers – Oyegun

APC-Odigie-OyegunNational Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has declared that the party will not interfere in the cabinet selection process and assured that President Muhammadu Buhari is working independently to assemble the “best hands” as ministers.
Oyegun, who made this know when a group of Nigerian students visited him at his office in Abuja on Wednesday, said Buhari has spent the last two months having a grasp of the situation he inherited from the People Democratic Party (PDP) led government.
He said, “What some of us in the progressives’ movement that had now transformed into governance in this country cannot accept is that the nation needs to be as bad as it is today.
“Yes, the circumstances of last 15 years ago are different, the nature of economy is different, people had evolved, but the basic fact remains the same and that is for any nation, for any government to have any legitimacy, its key emphasis and the whole justification for its existence must be the welfare of the people.
“Fortunately, we have a blueprint which makes your welfare and everybody’s welfare the core of his attention. Yes, things have turned out to be worse in the economy than we expected when we were campaigning. Every known indicator of good conduct has been violated and our institutions have factually been destroyed, even to the extent of tampering with security institution.
“So we have major reconstruction efforts ahead of us. One can only at this time plead through you to Nigerians to be patient with us because things are much worse than we expected.
“Let anybody make no mistake about it, we have a committed president in Buhari, in fact that is the core of his life and he has spent the last two months understanding the situation that he has taken over without interference and distractions. He has been able to hear, sit and interact with the core operators without third party intermediaries”.
