A stalwart of the All Progressives Congress, Bukie Okangbe, has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to consider the appointment of party loyalists who worked for his victory as a priority when appointing his cabinet.
This was even as she congratulated Tinubu on his emergence as the new Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States on Sunday.
The national coordinator of National Progressive Hub made the call in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday.
The development is coming on the heel of Tinubu’s election as chairman at the 63rd Ordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS.
Okangbe said, “Your emergence as the new Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States is a confirmation of the capacity, competence, and exemplary leadership experience which transcends the shore of Nigeria. It shows you as a man capable of not only providing leadership for his country but also for the regional African continent.
“While congratulating His Excellency, let us also use this medium to implore you on the need to make your cabinet a reflection of dedicated, committed, and hard-working party faithful who worked and sacrificed for the victory of APC at the last presidential election. To us, this will go a long way in affirming the principle of fairness you are known for and putting an end to the poor reward system our great party has been battling with over time.
“We pray that your reign shall bring more economic, political, social stability and prosperity to the region of West African and the continent at large.”
