APC Leaders at War With Buhari Over Refusal to Sack Jonathan’s Men


War is brewing at the All Progressive Congress between the party’s leaders and President Muhammadu Buhari, PUNCH reports.

Some leaders of the ruling party, who faulted Buhari’s retention of the PDP members, called for their sacking and the appointment of APC members in their stead.

Besides, some members of the APC also lamented that Buhari was not helping the party with funds.

A chieftain of the APC in Lagos said it was as if the President was rewarding members of the Peoples Democratic Party and punishing APC members.

“President Buhari took over on May 29, 2015 and has not rewarded APC members. Most of the heads of departments and agencies are members of the PDP who worked for Jonathan. For example, Onyeka Onwenu is still the Director-General of the National Women Centre while Mike Omeri is still the Director-General of the National Orientation Agency.

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