Following divergent reports over what the composition of President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet may look like, Sunday Vanguard understands that state Chairmen of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has asked to be carried along in the appointment of ministers.
The party leaders, who made their position known at a meeting with the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, held in Abuja, said they were not carried along when the immediate past ministers were appointed in 2015.
An impeccable source said that at the gathering, which took place two weeks ago, the party Chairmen said the situation was responsible for the inability of the ex-cabinet members to deliver their wards during the last general elections.
