The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, on Tuesday led some members of the party’s National Working Committee to a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Odigie-Oyegun later told State House correspondents that they were in the Presidential Villa, Abuja to raise some concerns with the President.
He said: “We just came to pay our respect to our President and praise him on things that are going on.
“We also raised our concerns on one or two issues and altogether we had a very pleasant and rewarding meeting.”
When asked to disclose some of the concerns raised by the party, the party chairman said: “No, they were just internal party matters.
“I’m sure you are familiar with the political terrain and nothing different.”
When asked to comment on the Monday sacking of some chief executives of parastatals, commissions and agencies by Buhari, Odigie-Oyegun said: “APC members were not concerned about the positions.
“We are concerned about the internal sabotage that is going on in a lot of the Peoples Democratic Party-filled positions, which are critical to our national growth and development.
“It is happening in INEC.
“It is happening in a lot of other institutions and that is what the concern of the party is.
“Not necessarily taking over.
“We should take over and they should be people who believe in the change agenda.
“We have no apologies for that at all.”
Odigie-Oyegun also justified the discrepancies so far noticed in the 2016 budget, saying the process of putting the document together was complicated.
He said: “There is absolutely no confusion.
“This is a serious issue.
“I want you to please understand the complications that come from adjusting a structure from over 40 ministries to just over 20 ministries and the necessary adjustments of figures and movements of institutions that, that entails.
“It was very complicated.
“So it is natural that adjustments have to be made to the process and that is just is happening.”
