APC National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun yesterday said internal sabotage in the government agencies mainly filled by PDP appointees was the reason behind the sack of 26 Director Generals of government parastatals by President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday February 15th.
Speaking with State House correspondents after leading the party leadership to meet President Buhari at the State House, Abuja yesterday February 16th, Oyegun said
“APC members are not concerned about the positions; we are concerned about the internal sabotage that is going on in a lot of the PDP 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.” On how soon the replacements will be made, he said: “That is Mr. President’s discretion.” Speaking on the 2016 budget, Oyegun dispelled rumors that there was any confusion “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”
