On Thursday, August 27, Pres.Buhari drew the anger of many across the country when the list of his latest appointment was released. The list which contained six new key appointees was criticized as being lopsided. Responding to the widespread outrage and criticisms over the appointment, APC national chairman Chief John Oyegun in an interview with Thisday on Saturday in Abuja said,
"It is too early and superficial to say the appointments were lopsided; it is too early. We are just a little over two months into the government. The appointments made so far are personal staff members of the president. And it is his prerogative to make the appointments."The chairman added, "Even though we were marginally involved in those appointments,the party will henceforth be fully involved in the subsequent appointments; that is where the supremacy of the party will come to bear. Nigerians should exercise a little patience. There will be board appointments,ministerial positions and a lot of other positions"
