Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari was working hard to assemble the best hands as ministers in the next few weeks, chairman of the country’s ruling party said on Wednesday.
The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun, told a meeting in Abuja, the nation’s capital city, that for any government to have legitimacy, its key emphasis and justification for existence must be the welfare of the people who entrusted the political party or leader with the governance of their common affairs.
He lamented the state of rot the party inherited and urged the nation to be patient.
According to him, the APC has a blueprint for everybody’s welfare.
“So, we have a major reconstruction effort ahead of us. One can only at this time plead through you to Nigerians to be patient with us because things are much worse than we expected,” he added.
“Let anybody make no mistake about it, President Buhari is committed; in fact, that is the core of his life and he has spent the last two months understanding the situation that he has taken over without interference and distractions,” he said.
He assured that Buhari had a new approach to governance, which was emphasizing target and deliverables in the lives of the people that he had been entrusted to govern. Enditem
