The All Progressive Congress spokesman, Alhaji Lai Muhammed has denied the authenticity of the President-elect Muhammadeu Buhari’s alleged list of Ministers to be screened by the security quarters.
In his statement to Guardian yesterday said that the list is false and should be discarded.
Lai Mohammed said: “The most important thing is getting the agenda for governance right. There are many qualified Nigerians that help in actualising the agenda and we are not interested in pulling the cart before the horse.
Frankly, ministerial list or appointments are not among the pressing priorities of the party for now nor the president-elect. You must disregard any of such list,” he said.
He also begged Governors Babangida Aliyu of Niger State, and his Jigawa State counterpart, Sule Lamido to watch their words and said the nation has switched from pre-election to post-election mode.
‘’Nigerians have switched from pre-election to post-election mode, making the unsolicited advice and the rehash of the vitriolic electioneering campaign rhetoric from the two governors totally out of tune with reality and unwarranted.
Our commitment to Nigeria is sacrosanct, irrespective of the state of the economy; hence we do not need any cheeky advice from the two governors.
We are not making any excuses, but we will let Nigerians and indeed the world know how much the economy has been wrecked and the role of anyone in bringing the economy to its knees,” the statement read in part.
‘’Governors Aliyu and Lamido are so bitter and traumatised that they have forgotten it was their party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that divided Nigeria along it ethnic, religious and regional fault lines.
They have forgotten that it was their party that cleaned out the commonwealth in its desperation to win at all cost, at a stage shunning the Naira for US dollars and helping to crash the value of the local currency.
‘’The governors are also imagining where they would have been now, had they not betrayed the G7 of which they were original members, seeing the group up to the starting line but cunningly refusing to take off when the race was flagged off.
They made a wrong choice and lost out, and they must live with the consequences of their choice, instead of continuing to snipe at some imaginary enemies to rebuild Nigeria,’’ APC said.
Just some moments ago, we reported the alleged list which could be read in full here. In the light of this update, we urge our readers to discard the purpoted minsterial list.
