Oyegun Says Sacked DGs Were Sabotaging Buhari’s Government


National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun on Tuesday explained that contrary to claims that members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, were interested in taking over the jobs of heads of parastatals sacked the previous day, the party was more concerned about alleged internal sabotage going on in some agencies hitherto headed by officials appointed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Oyegun, who addressed State House correspondents after leading some members of the party’s National Working Committee to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, claimed the party chiefs came to pay their respect to the President, adding that they, however, raised their concerns on some internal party matters in the meeting, which he described as pleasant and rewarding.

On the sack of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s appointees, the APC boss said: “APC members were not concerned about the positions, we are concerned about the internal sabotage that is going on in a lot of the PDP-filled positions which are critical to our national growth and development.

“It is happening in INEC, it is happening in a lot of other institutions and that is what the concern of the party is, not necessarily taking over.

“We should take over and there should be people who believe in the change agenda, we have no apologies for that at all,” he said, adding that it is at the President’s discretion to decide how soon the replacements for the sacked officials would come.
