"We are sure, Nigerians around the globe are proud with the appointments  to positions of recognition in United States and employ every other nation that deem Nigerians fit, to kindly do as America," APC USA Coordinator, Francis John, said.

Announcing the appointments, President Barack Obama said the dedicated individuals brought a wealth of experience and talent to their new roles and he was proud to have them serve in his administration.

"To APC USA, these appointments further indicate Nigerians relevance to the eyes of Americans and the world, even though among rotten eggs, there are good ones," said John.
