All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday expressed confidence in the ministers appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari, describing them as tested and trusted.
Dismissing the position of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the current ministers do not represent change, Mala Buni, national secretary of the APC, accused the PDP of appointing “miscreants, mistresses and thugs”, as ministers during the period that it formed government at the center.
“The argument of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the portfolios inspired no change was warped and a product of defeat hangover,” Buni said in a statement issued on Thursday.
“The PDP should face its rebranding pursuit instead of running down a performing government.
“APC is not a party which will assign portfolios to miscreants, thugs and mistresses as rampant during the misrule period of PDP.
“The choice of the ministers and their clearance without any reservations by the senate attested to the leadership ingenuity of the president.
“We are happy that every member of the federal executive council is tested and trusted.
“The meticulous assigning of portfolios on Wednesday was also a signal to Nigerians that their electoral investment in our great party and President Buhari was not a waste.
“We endorse all the portfolios, we have absolute faith in the new ministers and we know that the final hour of redemption is here.
“The journey to economic recovery, meaningful democracy, and moral revolution in our great country has started. For the umpteenth time, APC assures Nigerians of its desire to take them to the Promised Land.
“The APC government will not fail the nation. Buhari will keep his words and salvage Nigeria for the benefit of all.
“The unprecedented assumption of duty by the ministers, barely some hours after oath-taking, underscored the determination of the APC administration to offer a qualitative and faster service to the nation.
“APC appeals to the ministers to abide by their oath of office, render selfless service, live up to expectations and write their names in gold. This is a winning team, none of them must fail.
“We implore Nigerians, including the increasingly impatient opposition parties, to give the cabinet a breathing space and support it to deliver the dividends of democracy.
“The task of rebuilding Nigeria is a responsibility of every citizen. Rather than sit on the fence to find faults, the opposition should join hands with the President to re-fix the nation.
“President Buhari has what it takes to lead; he is imbued with vision to redirect Nigeria to prosperity but he needs the cooperation of all citizens and groups.
“Under five months, President Buhari has saved the country from brinkmanship, plugged loopholes, placed premium on prudence and set a new template for probity and accountability.”
Buhari unveiled his 36-man cabinet on Wednesday.
