The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Nigeria’s ruling party, Adams Oshiomhole, says any member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Nigeria’s main opposition party, occupying important positions in federal agencies will be sacked by the ruling party.
Mr Oshiomhole made this comment on Wednesday, July 11 in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital during the inauguration and swearing-in ceremony held for the 39 Non-National Working Committee (NWC) members of the party.
His words: “We are aware that even as of today, we still have a lot of PDP people occupying very important positions in federal agencies. We will do everything possible to purge these elements out of the system because we are a party of change. They are the conservative right-wing party.”
“We cannot entrust to conservative forces an agenda for change. Government is not in the Villa. Villa is the head of government. Government is in the agencies – what they do, how they do it, the quality of service delivery and the style of that service delivery.”
“That is how the ordinary man interfaces with power and if these agencies are in the hands of those who do not believe in our change agenda, then we cannot expect miracles from them”, the former Edo state governor added.
