The All Progressives Congress’ Youth Development and Solidarity Forum (APC-YDSF) in Benue has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to appoint loyal people as ministers.
President of the group, Chief Tobias Ogbe gave the advice at a press conference on Friday in Makurdi adding that Chief Michael Achadu is one of the party’s major backbone in the state who deserves nomination for ministerial appointment.
President Tinubu is expected to forward names of ministerial nominees to the Senate for confirmation, on or before 28th July, 2023.
The group’s president said that the nomination of Chief Michael Achadu would place APC as a party that rewards loyalty, dedication and commitment.
Ogbe said that their prefer nominee spent personal resources, time, energy and goodwill to bring the APC to victory not only in the state but across the country.
He argued that some of those who are currently jostling for appointments around the presidency did little or nothing to make the party reclaim Benue.
Ogbe said, “We are aware of those who are currently lobbying for appointments, both in Benue and around the Presidency in Abuja. But we must tell ourselves the truth, some of them could not even deliver their polling units or wards during the last elections. What is their contribution to the success of the party in the last general elections?
“We remember some of them, when, during the buildup to the Presidential primaries in 2022, we were almost stranded and needed a boost financially to continue our activities in support of Asiwaju; we approached many them in Benue, Kogi, Niger, even in the south, but they failed us.
“It was also Chief Achadu who singlehandedly released funds that prosecuted the elections of APC and that of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in his country home of Okpokwu Local Government of Benue State and caused victory for our party, for the first time, in the traditional home of PDP since 1999. This was in addition to his stretch of benevolence and support to our party men and women across other council areas in Benue and beyond,” Chief Ogbeh said.
