Alhaji Abdulmalik Usman, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman, has said that the party has seen the ministerial list by President Muhammadu Buhari and they cannot be silent about it, as there was no inclusion of an FCT native in the list.
Usman concluded that those who claim the ruling party has been silent over the agitation are not being sincere to the party. He advised the party against going to the pages of newspapers to blow its trumpet. According to him, people might think that the party had even made a case for ministerial appointment before the election.
He further stated that there was a delegation of traditional rulers and stakeholders who paid a visit to the president to appeal to him on giving ministerial slots to the people of the FCT.
“And by the way, those who are now agitating for ministerial slot, what did they do regarding the ministerial slot when they were in power in the last 16 years?” Usman asked.
From the recent happenings within the party, he insisted, there are indications that the agitation for a ministerial appointment by some well-known politicians was PDP’s agenda to attract cheap popularity from the people.
