APC leaders ask Buhari to sack Jonathan’s appointees

14 January 2016, 12:37

Abuja - Some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have voiced their dissatisfaction with the decision by President Muhammadu Buhari to retain some of the political appointees appointed by his predecessor in office, Goodluck Jonathan, reports Punch.

The leaders faulted the decision of Buhari not to sack the appointees.

They noted that it was as if the President was rewarding members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and punishing APC members.
