Says Plot to Reward PDP Loyalists at the Expense of the Real Progressives is Dangerous and a Disservice to the Party
A cross-section of the founding members of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja on Wednesday have kicked against the mandate secretaries appointed by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.
The leaders who crave for anonymity while reacting to the recent appointments made by the former Governor of Rivers State, his Excellency Nyesome Wike, said it highly disservice to the All progressives Congress as a party and the leaders of the party who worked day and night for the party not to be rewarded with such appointment of magnitude but only for the Ministers to be rewarding People’s Democratic Party members with such appointment at the detriment of the real progressive.
The Leaders said that the appointment of Wike as a minister representing Rivers State at the Federal Executive Council is not a license for him to see the Federal Capital Territory as a reward mechanism for his people without recourse to protect the interest of the party that honored him with such position.
The leaders went on to call on the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, His Excellency, Ganduje to please look into the deprivation and marginalization going on in FCT and redress it now before it gets out of hands.
The newly appointed Mandate secretaries , who are PDP card carrying members are Bitrus( Area Council Services Secretariat), Lawal Kole Geidman(Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat) Danlami Ihayyo(Education) Dr.Adedolapo Fasawe(Health and Human Services Secretariat) others are Barrister Salama Dako (Legal Services Secretariat) Barrister Chinedum Elechi( Economic Planning Revenue Generation and PPP) and Arch Uboku Tom Nyah( Transportation).
According to them, the newly appointed mandate secretaries must be suspended with immediate effect to give room for real party members who are more capable to assume the roles.
They said unanimously that if no action is taken by the president and the party to redress the injustice meted at the party’s actors they won’t mind to demonstrate openly expressing their grievance and the injustice.
