APC Cries Out as Lawan Appoints Aides



Screening for Ministerial Nominees

The All progressive Congress has kicked against the first appointments made by the senate President.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Stakeholders Forum has given a strong warning to the Senate President, senator Ahmad Lawan against appointing ‘enemies’ of President Buhari as aides.

This group disagrees totally with the senate president for such appointments, as that is an insult to President Buhari ‘s  “integrity” and the APC family.

It will be recalled that the Senate President had so far appointed Festus Adebayo, columnist, as his media adviser, and also retained Olu Onemola and Tope Olowoyeye, aides of Bukola Saraki.

The group frank at the Senate President, senator Ahmad Lawan  and told him to Stop Compensating ‘Enemies’ Of Buhari

The spokesperson for the group Abu Andrew, while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Thursday, said the appointments are sending a signal that Lawan might have turned against those who helped him get into power.

“When the Senate President we all supported with our hearts and worked for wholeheartedly begins to compensate enemies of the government, those of the party and indeed those of the same President Buhari who endured insults for backing Senator Lawan for Senate President position; then the devil himself must be celebrated for doing a good job in turning a Senate President we brought in against us so soon and so fast,” Andrew said.

“No doubt, the appointments are glaring reward for people who have not only insulted the person of President Muhammadu Buhari but also severally maligned the integrity of the office he occupies

“Even for supporting Senator Lawan to be Senate President, these new appointees did not spare the president.

“Now that senator Lawan has achieved his ambition, it’s disheartening to see that the very people he puts forward as beneficiaries of his new position are those who condemned and vilified those who supported him to attain the position in the first place.”

In the same vain, Ayo Oyalowo, a member of the group, said it is important to work with those who believe in your agenda

“It is not about appointments as it were, it is about the fact that there is an agenda called – initially the change agenda now the next level agenda,” He said
