APC to Nigerians: Don”t assess Buhari from 2015

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Nigerians should not assess the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari from 2015 when it was inaugurated.

 APC National Chairman Chief John Odigie-Oyegun said this in an interview with State House correspondents late Tuesday night after a three-hour meeting the president held with the party’s national caucus at the New Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.   

 Oyegun stated that Nigerians should rather begin to count the present administration’s achievements from this year when the implementation of the budget would begin.

 Responding to a question on what the administration had to showcase as its achievements one year into its inauguration, he said: "Don’t say one year into the present administration. Count this year because this is the year we are presenting our budget and implementation will start".

 He said the meeting discussed all the challenges that have arisen since the last general elections and decided on the way forward.

 "It was a very serious meeting that discussed serious issues that have to do with the progress of the party. Basically, we’re expecting the budget to be out, and once that is done, implementation of our policies will start. That is what we will use to deliver on our promises to the people. So, we are waiting", he added.

 Speaking further, Oyegun said he was not aware that his position as APC national chairman was under any threat.

 The APC chair said he was occasionally amazed and annoyed by reports that there were calls for his removal.

 "I am not aware that my office is under threat. I led the party to the State House. It amazes me, occasionally, it annoys me. That is one of the things you have to endure when you are in a position like mine.

 On the crises rocking the APC in various states of the federation, Oyegun said "skirmishes among party members are normal. We have set up a committee that is looking into all those issues and will resolve those issues".

 He also stated that with the approval of the National Assembly, President Buhari’s administration would appropriately make use of all the funds recovered.
