APC leaders angry with Buhari over Ambassadorial nominees

24 October 2016, 12:26

Abuja - There are rumblings in the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the recent nomination of non-career ambassadorial nominees by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Some of the leaders of the party are angry with Buhari for alienating them in the selection process, reports Thisday.

Recalled that Buhari had on Thursday forwarded the names of 46 non-career ambassadors to the Senate for confirmation.

The nominees according to News 24 included retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice George Oguntade (Lagos); former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Paulen Tallen (Plateau); former member of the House of Representatives, Usman Bugaje (Katsina), former Deputy Governor of Niger State, Ahmed Ibeto.

The party leaders across the country, including APC governors are said not to be happy with the way the latest ambassadorial list was handled, as they were completely ignored from the selection process.

This disappointment was said to have been more pronounced in the South-west geopolitical zone, where a majority of the APC leaders claimed complete ignorance of the persons appointed from their respective states.

The aggrieved APC chieftains have vowed to frustrate the proposed ambassadors whose nomination did not represent the reality and endorsement of party leaders in their states.
