Be just to Amaechi, APC chieftain tells sen­a­tors

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

A Board of Trustees (BoT) mem­ber of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), Chief Sam Nkire, has lauded the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) sen­a­tors for co­op­er­at­ing with the APC sen­a­tors in the con­fir­ma­tion of some of the min­is­te­rial mom­i­nees sent by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari.

The APC chieftain urged the Na­tional As­sem­bly to en­sure that jus­tice was done to all nom­i­nees, in­clud­ing former gover­nor Ro­timi Amaechi of Rivers State.

The Abia State born politi­cian said the PDP as a party had so far shown ma­tu­rity and re­spon­si­bil­ity in the way it han­dled the process of min­is­te­rial screen­ing.

He, how­ever, chided the PDP for mourn­ing its de­feat in the last pres­i­den­tial elec­tion for too long, rather than go­ing back to the draw­ing board.

Chief Nkire said in­stead of apol­o­gis­ing to Nige­ri­ans for not keep­ing their prom­ises in the last six­teen years, the PDP lead­ers were in­stead blam­ing one an­other for not hang­ing onto power af­ter los­ing the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

The APC chieftain added that it was sad to note that the PDP fam­ily was not blam­ing its fail­ure at the polls on its in­abil­ity to de­liver on prom­ises.
