The management of the All Progressives Congress will ratify the list of persons to be appointed into the Federal Executive Council before presentation to the National Assembly.
The Punch has it that the party leaders in Abuja on Wednesday were seeking to restore the party supremacy which some alleged was lost during the 16 years that the Peoples Democratic Party held sway.
A well known northern leader of the party, who for security sentience preferred anonymity revealed that the APC was working to avoid the pitfalls which led to the collapse of the PDP.
He said, “We are looking at a situation where the party will direct the affairs of government in line with our manifesto. Recall that this was largely the case during the second republic.
“But since 1999, what we have seen is the rise of individuals whose personal interests took precedence over the general interest of the party and the people.
“The APC cannot afford to let this happen because we have a social contract with the Nigerian people who voted for the party based on the promise to bring about change in the polity.”
He further disclosed that under the APC administration, there is no way the President’s wife would have the latitude to meddle in the party affairs to the extent of dictating who got appointed and who did not.
