Min­is­te­rial con­fir­ma­tion: We are now united – APC

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS -

The All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) has said the con­fir­ma­tion of all the min­is­te­rial nom­i­nees by the Sen­ate, de­spite some mis­giv­ings by the op­po­si­tion, has shown that the party’s leg­is­la­tors are ready to work with the ex­ec­u­tive to­ward the im­ple­men­ta­tion of its agenda for the ben­e­fit of all Nige­ri­ans.

The APC added that the con­fir­ma­tion had re­vealed that there is no longer any divi­sion within the APC fam­ily.

“The co­he­sion and unity ex­hib­ited by the APC Sen­a­tors on Thurs­day have shown that our leg­is­la­tors are ready to work with the ex­ec­u­tive and the party to en­sure that the agenda of the party is im­ple­mented for the ben­e­fit of all Nige­ri­ans,’” the party said in a state­ment is­sued in Lagos yes­ter­day by its Na­tional Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary, Al­haji Lai Mo­hammed.

“We com­mend all our mem­bers and lead­ers in the Sen­ate and in­deed the lead­er­ship of the APC for this show of unity,” it said.

APC said democ­racy was at work in the Sen­ate yes­ter­day, de­spite the de­ci­sion of the op­po­si­tion PDP Sen­a­tors to stage a walk out over the con­fir­ma­tion of former Gover­nor Chibuike Amaechi.

“It is part of democ­racy that while the mi­nor­ity can have their say, the ma­jor­ity will have their way. There­fore, the de­ci­sion of the PDP Sen­a­tors to walk out is noth­ing but democ­racy in ac­tion,” the party said.

It en­joined the en­tire Na­tional As­sem­bly to con­tinue to work with the ex­ec­u­tive arm of gov­ern­ment for the over­all in­ter­est of Nige­ria and its peo­ple.

“With the stage now set for the fed­eral cabi­net to be in place, we im­plore all Nige­ri­ans, ir­re­spec­tive of their party af­fil­i­a­tion, to sup­port Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari in his oner­ous task of mak­ing Nige­ria great again,” APC said.
