Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election for a second term in office, wife of the President, Aisha on Thursday advised the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, to consider only card-carrying members for political appointments in the next dispensation.
She made the call at a dinner to celebrate the February 23 election victory of the President at Daura, his home town. The event, which took place at the Daura Stadium, attracted women and youth supporters of the APC from across Katsina state.
Noting that the constitution of the party specifies that appointments to offices in an APC led government should go to card-carrying members, she therefore advised that the party constitution should be respected.
She expressed appreciation over the support that the party enjoyed in the last Presidential election, especially from women and youth and assured them that government will do more to improve their lives.
“I wish to thank the women and youth of this country for the number of votes they gave President Buhari in the 2019 election and to assure that he will continue to do his best to make Nigeria a better country,” she said.
One of the speakers at the event, the Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika praised the electorate for choosing President Buhari, whose integrity, he said, is time-tested.
He assured them that the second tenure will result in development in all spheres of endeavour, and commended Mrs. Buhari for her initiative of engaging women and youth during the presidential campaign, which resulted in the massive votes recorded.
Goodwill messages were delivered by many politicians including Woman Leader of the APC Women and Youth Presidential Campaign Team, Mrs. Binta Muazu, and Senator Fatuhu Mohammed, representing Daura Zone.
The event was attended by wife of the Governor of Katsina state, Zakiyya Masari, wife of the Deputy Governor, Mrs. Mannir Yakubu and wife of Minister of Interior, Mrs. Hadiza Dambazau.
