A 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.
Speaking with ThisDay, the NWC member expressed regret that the party is left dark. “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”.
However, he 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.
“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,” he said.
