Bloody Commotion As APC Blows Hot, Accuses President Muhammadu Buhari Of Massive Corruption And Lopsided Appointments, Writes Petition

The All Progressives Congress, APC, on Monday, protested against President Muhammadu Buhari’s alleged lopsided appointments, while describing the act as ‘corruption’.

The protest was been carried out by the Enugu State chapter of the APC, over the appointment of non-APC members from the State into federal positions.

The Chairman of the party, Ben Nwoye, stated that the party particularly condemns the recent appointment of Loretta Aniagolu, and one Chinwike Uzor, as Board members of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency, FERMA.

It also listed the earlier appointment of Justice Pearl Enejere as Chairman, Governing Council of the Othman Danfodio University, Sokoto, and Joseph Ilo, as Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, representing Enugu.

The APC said the appointees were not only members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, but were also staunch critics of the APC in the State.

They stated that other appointments made earlier, including the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, Senior Special Assistant Adviser to the President on Judicial Review, Juliet Ibekaku, and Director General of the Voice of Nigeria, VON, Osita Okeckukwu, were drawn from Udi, Eke Ward Council, when there are 16 other Local Councils in the State.

Nwoye said the State Executive Council and other Leaders of the party, had resolved to petition Buhari, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and other party Leaders, over the continued neglect of party members and lopsided appointments.
