APC chieftain ‘says Buhari’s delay in picking cabinet brings ridicule’

President Muhammadu Buhari’s delay in appointing his cabinet is not going down well with everybody as a chieftain of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) Paul Ikonne, has stated his concern on the issue.

He stated that leaders of the party from the South Eastern region are being mocked by supporters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over Buhari’s failure to appoint people from the region.

Ikonne spoke with journalists on Tuesday in Abuja. He said he believes the South East will get its due rewards soon.

One online report quotes him, “To be very honesty with you we are under pressure, serious pressure, because the PDP people and those that didn’t believe in the APC are just mocking us but we are not disturbed.

“During campaign Buhari came to South-East and he made promises and I believe he will keep to his promises. I have no doubt in my mind that when Mr. President turn to South-East he will balance the equation,

“Don’t forget that there still some key positions left that he has not filled, so I am optimistic that at the end of the day he will do justice to the South-Easterners.

Ikonne also commended Buhari over the appointment of the new Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Ibe Kachikwu. He said it’s a good choice because he has the qualities to help Buhari in his resolve to tackle corruption at the NNPC.
