Tinubu’s attempt to use appointments to seek legitimacy is bound to fail — LP

    Published By:

    The Labour Party has stated that attempts by President Tinubu and the ruling All Progressives Congress to use ministerial and board appointments in an attempt to legitimize its stolen mandate are doomed to fail because the LP, and its standard bearer, Peter Obi, have their eyes on the ball.

    Obiora Ifoh, the party’s National Publicity Secretary  said this in response to news that President Tinubu has written to state governors to nominate competent persons to serve in the boards and parastatals of Federal Government agencies which were dissolved last month.

    Wakadaily learnt that Bola Tinubu announced the dissolution of the governing boards of over 153 agencies, parastatals, institutions and government-owned companies. Over 2,000 vacant positions are expected to be filled up by new nominees.

    Ifoh who spoke to Vanguard today in Abuja said, “We are not unaware of the subtle moves by the APC and President Tinubu to break our ranks using all kinds of gimmicks to try to break our resolve to retrieve the mandate freely given to Peter Obi and his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed on February 25, 2023.

    We will not be swayed or distracted from our goal which is to retrieve our stolen mandate that is why we are before the Tribunal and have provided the necessary documents and arguments to buttress our case.

    “I can assure you that the majority of Nigerians are with us and have seen through all of the desperate attempts by the APC to legitimize what it is fully aware is a stolen mandate.”
