"Those expectations will mostly be gauged directly from the quality of people who will be in this government," APC stated.
"Up for grabs are powerful positions in Ministries and parastatals where the country needs progressive and definitive action in areas like Power, Education and Agriculture to mention just a few."
The party said to achieve any significant progress, the Government must "hit the ground running".
"Behind the scenes, Buhari and the Vice President-elect Yemi Osinbajo are already vetting people who need to surround them in the process," said APC's campaign team.
The APC secured victory in the Federal Government level, a majority in the Senate and lower house of assembly as well as a significant win in Lagos.
