APC Chieftain Speaks on 2000 Vacant Board Positions

Director of publicity of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bala Ibrahim, has stated that the appointment of recently dissolved board members by President Bola Tinubu would be based on competence and capacity to work.

Politics Nigeria earlier reported that Tinubu, on Monday night, announced the dissolution of the governing boards of all federal government parastatals, agencies, and commissions.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim stated that the appointment of new board members should not be seen as a reward system.

He noted that it was the prerogative of the President to decide whether he wanted party members or technocrats as members of his administration.

“Even if people are jostling for appointments, I don’t think that will be considered something that is paramount or fundamental. The president is not going to be stampeded, I suppose, into submitting to pressure,” he said.

“I think he is going to look out for competence and capacity in the delivery of his agenda. He and the party had made promises to the people. I don’t think it is the pressure of the hustlers that will determine who gets what positions”.

Meanwhile President Tinubu, earlier at a meeting with Senators on June 7, indicated that those who lost elections and other members of the party that they would not be left out in appointments.

“The elephant is big enough for all members, and indeed Nigerians, to have a share of the renewed hope in due course,” Tinubu said.
