Ex-sec PDP berates Buhari over lopsided appointments

The pioneer National Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Pary (PDP), from Akwa Ibom State, Senator Anietie Okon, has accused President Mohammed Buhari of not carrying all sections of the country along in the distribution of political appointments in the country.

Okon, who represented Uyo Senatorial district at the National Assembly during the Third Republic, stated this while speaking with our correspondent on Friday, against the backdrop of the recent dropping of the Acting Director General, Security and Exchange Commission, Mrs. Mary Uduk, by the President in preference for a northerner, Alhaji Lamido Yugudu. Senator who was miffed by Buhari’s action said he is laying tracks of disintegration of the country, adding Nigerians cannot continue to be blind to the issues that have held the country together.

“The Federal Government is not doing well. Today I am very angry because a daughter of Akwa Ibom state that has served this country well as acting director general awaiting confirmation as substantive DG of the Security and Exchange Commission has been sacked and replaced by a northerner. “I just called some members in the Senate from Akwa Ibom State to rally together and they said they are miffed by the conduct of the man at the helm of affairs. Only God knows what agenda he is pursuing.”
