The national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, John Oyegun, has said the party should not be blamed for the controversy that trailed President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent board appointments as it was not fully involved in the process.
The chairman, while speaking with journalists on Saturday in Abuja, said the appointments had caused enough controversy.
Mr. Oyegun said the party was involved in the early stage of the process but was not consulted at the end, ”otherwise some of the fully obvious problems in that list wouldn’t have been there.”
He urged the presidency to consult it in any future amendments to the list so as to avoid other anomalies.
“The list has caused enough controversy. It is pretty obvious that that the party was not involved in the final completion of the list.
“We demanded that that every state send nominees’ names to the committee set up for that but between then and now a lot has happened. People have changed parties, people have died, three governors who were not there before are now with us.
“It is my hope that we will be fully involved in review that has to now take place,” he said.
