A former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, has asked Nigerians not to rush President Muhammadu Buhari into taking hasty decisions on  national issues.

He stated this on Sunday at St Patrick’s Catholic Church, Aguluzuigbo, Anaocha Local Government Area of the state during the thanksgiving mass of former National Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, Chief Victor Umeh.

The ex-vice president said, “Every leader has his own style. The most important thing is to get the right results, ensure peace, stability and unity of the country.”

Ekwueme according to the Punch however, noted that the appointments so far made by the President did not quite meet the federal character requirement as envisaged by the Constitution of the country.

He said the constitution of the country “requires that the president  to observe federal character in appointments, considering the six geopolitical zones in the country.

Ekwueme, who described Umeh as his son, said the former APGA national chairman had achieved greatness for Ndigbo at a young age, urging him not to relent.
