Only APC Members Should Be Considered For Appointment
Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has advised the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to consider only card-carrying members for political appointments.
She made the call on Thursday during a dinner which was held in Daura, Katsina State to celebrate the victory of the President and the APC at the 2019 presidential polls.
Speaking during the event which held at the Daura stadium, Mrs Buhari noted that the constitution of the party specifies that appointments to offices in an APC led government should go to card-carrying members.
She, therefore, advised the party to respect the party constitution according to a statement issued by her spokesman, Suleiman Haruna.
President Muhammadu Buhari had also recently disclosed that only people with integrity will form members of his cabinet during his second term in office.
The first lady also expressed appreciation over the support that her husband and the party enjoyed in the last Presidential election, promising the government will do more to improve their lives.
The statement quoted her as saying: “I wish to thank the women and youth of this country for the number of votes they gave President Buhari in the 2019 election and to assure that he will continue to do his best to make Nigeria a better country.”
Speaking at the event, Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika appreciated the electorate for choosing President Buhari and the APC.
The minister further commended Mrs Buhari for her initiative of engaging women and youth during the presidential campaign, which resulted in the massive votes recorded.
The event had in attendance the wife of the Governor of Katsina state, Mrs Zakiyya Masari, wife of the Deputy Governor, Mrs Mannir Yakubu and wife of Minister of Interior, Mrs Hadiza Dambazau, as well as several other party stalwarts.
