Okorocha Tells Buhari To Sack PDP Loyalists In His Cabinet
Gov Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has lamented that most plum jobs in the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration are being held by members of the opposition, People Democratic Party (PDP).
He echoed the statement made by the Comptroller of Customs and Excise, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd), noting that time had come for the APC to appoint its own men and to empower them to be ready for the next election.
Speaking in a short interview with newsmen during the APC NEC meeting in Abuja, Okorocha, when asked whether he was worried about the alleged 50% PDP members running President Buhari’s government said: “It is not that 50% of PDP running this government alone, PDP members are holding major plum jobs in the country which if it were PDP’s government they won’t have allowed that and they are getting fattened as a result and ready to fight us.
“Remember your political enemy can never love you politically, so we must address issues and make sure that we settle our party men to make sure that APC people hold great positions in boards and others to give them confidence and sense of belonging, that is what we are asking for."
When asked to react to the demand by some APC supporters that President Buhari should dissolve his cabinet to accommodate some aggrieved members of the party, Okorocha said: “Well, I heard of it that we need to rejig the entire system to give confidence to people, release the board list, make people happy and get things working but you know President Buhari has his own style, that is not my own style.
“My style would have been to rejig and move on but his style would be take things easy and slowly and get there which is working for him,” Okorocha said.
