A cross-section of the founding members of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja on Wednesday kicked against the mandate secretaries appointed by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, Nyesom Wike.
The leaders who crave anonymity while reacting to the recent appointments made by the former governor of Rivers state said it was a high disservice to the APC as a party.
They stated that leaders of the party who worked day and night for the APC in the 2023 general elections ought to be rewarded with such appointments.
The APC leaders accused the Minister of rewarding People’s Democratic Party members with such appointments “at the detriment of the real progressives.”
The leaders called on the national chairman of the APC, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, to “look into the deprivation and marginalization going on in FCT and redress it now before it gets out of hands.”
According to them, “the newly appointed mandate secretaries must be suspended immediately to give room for actual party members who are more capable of assuming the roles.”
They said if the president and the party do not redress the injustice meted out to APC members, they won’t mind openly expressing their grievance and the injustice.
