National chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, John Odigie-Oyegun has said some appointments effected by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration were not pleasant to the party.

Mr Oyegun, who was speaking in Abuja while reviewing the two-year activities of the administration, said the period was rough for the government and Nigerians due to the preparation of a new economic roadmap.

He said Buhari administration has performed creditably well within the two years having rebuilt and gradually returned the econ­omy to the present stage.

The national chairman said government will use the remaining two years of its mandate to deliver the ben­efits of democracy and the desired change it promised Nigerians.

“I must be very honest and frank, the reward system and appointment hasn’t been as pleasant to the party as it ought to be, part of them haven’t been well thought out as it ought to be.

“We have cases which wouldn’t have happened where individuals who are in court with our elected officials, one case a governor which is now at the Supreme Court has been given ap­pointments.

“We have cases at least one or two known cur­rent appointees of the PDP have been given. We have cases where in a particular state from the same local government, I think, going to the same ward, three people have been given appoint­ments and these things and many more is that we have a lot of cases where faces not known to the party during the most difficult part of the struggle have gotten appoint­ments. So, it has caused a lot of disquiet within the party,” he said.

Mr Oyegun agreed that the past two years have been hard for Nigerians, but government was locking all the loopholes in the economy.

“Two years of re­building the fractured natural resources; preparing a new base of economy blue­print for the Nigerian nation to take off. It has started to bear fruit but until it sits down the ordinary man will not recognise that we have taken the turn for the home stretch.

“In the next two years, we expect massive implementa­tion; accomplishment as far as the new railway system is concerned. I think they will finish the Lagos-Ibadan end by the end of next year and most of the others, people will see them generate in­come and employment,” he said.
