North Central States Demand More Federal Appointments
The National Vice Chairman, North Central of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Zakari Abdullahi, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to consider the zone for more political appointments.
He said the call became necessary following the successful performance of the party in the zone in the 2015 general election.
The APC chieftain made the appeal when he and party chairmen from states in the zone paid a visit to Niger State Governor, Abubakar Bello, in his office at Government House, Minna.
To fast track this, the party leader called on governors from the zone to seek audience with President Buhari for the actualisation of their demand.
He then solicited for the cooperation of his host and other APC governors in the zone to work with the President in ensuring the progress and sustainability of the country and the ruling party.
He commended the anti-corruption crusade efforts of President Buhari, his administration’s well-coordinated fight against insurgency and the handling of the present economic challenges.
The national vice Chairman solicited for a cordial relationship between the executive and the legislative arm of government, challenging them to always strive to speak in one voice in the interest of the nation and urged Nigerians to support the change mantra of the present administration.
Governor Bello assured the party delegates that the Buhari administration would soon find solutions to the myriad of problems facing the country.
The governor also called for unity among the states in the zone stressing that, “as a matter of urgency, the north central zone states should seat down and identify areas of common interest, progress and development for the entire zone.
“North central zone delivered APC and we need to unite for good things to come, because we have one common interest and should be speaking in voice”
