The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the confirmation of all
the ministerial nominees by the Senate, despite some misgivings by the opposition, has shown clearly that there is no longer any division within the APC family.
”The cohesion and unity exhibited by the APC Senators on Thursday
have shown that our legislators are ready to work with the
executive and the party to ensure that the the agenda of the party is
implemented for the benefit of all Nigerians,” the party said
in a statement issued in Lagos on Thursday by its National Publicity
Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
”We commend all our members and leaders in the Senate and indeed the
leadership of the APC for this show of unity,” it said.
APC said democracy was clearly at work in the Senate on Thursday,
despite the decision of the opposition PDP Senators to stage a walk out over the confirmation of former Gov. Chibuike Amaechi.
”It is part of democracy that while the minority can have their say,
the majority will have their way. Therefore, the decision of the PDP
Senators to walk out is nothing but democracy in action,” the party said.
It enjoined the entire National Assembly to continue to work with the
executive arm of government for the overall interest of Nigeria and its people.
”With the stage now set for the federal cabinet to be in place, we
implore all Nigerians, irrespective of their party affiliation, to
support President Muhammadu Buhari in his onerous task of making Nigeria great again,” APC said
