Out-going President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has been accused of setting traps for the incoming Government of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.) by embarking on unnecessary last-minute appointments as well as the removal and immediate replacement of heads of strategic government parastatals according to dailypost.
The allegation was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday in Port Harcourt by the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“We are appalled and disappointed by this gale of appointments, sacks and replacements by a go-slow President who was hitherto known for his inability to remove erring public officers and to replace ministers and heads of government agencies who either retired or resigned their appointments. The last-minute rush by President Jonathan to remove and replace heads of strategic government departments and agencies is therefore nothing but an attempt to set traps for the incoming Buhari Administration in the hope that reviewing these illegal actions would result in the loss of goodwill by the successor-administration,” Rivers APC said in the statement signed by the Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya.
“To us this rash of sacks and appointments apart from unnecessarily over-heating the polity is also distracting the incoming administration. We wonder why all these late sackings and appointments at the twilight of this administration that has caused our nation a lot of hardship which will take the administration of General Buhari much time and efforts to mitigate.” he added
