Tinubu can’t appoint everybody minister, Adamu tells APC chairmen.

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has cautioned party chieftains against nursing high expectations of being appointed as ministers by President Bola Tinubu, saying everybody can’t be a cabinet member.
Adamu also used the opportunity to explain the delay in the unveiling of the President’s ministers and heads of ministries, departments and agencies, saying Tinubu was carrying out an extensive consultation before making an official announcement.
The former Nasarawa State governor stated these at the meeting of the National Working Committee and APC state chairmen at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja on Monday.
The meeting, which started at about 1.55pm, was attended by a delegation of 32 members of the Forum of APC Chairmen, including their leader, Ali Dalori, and acting Secretary, Alphonsus Ogah.
Addressing the party chieftains, Adamu said, “Every APC member has an inherent right to hope to get some patronage. We cannot all be ministers of the government. We cannot all end up as board members, directors of parastatals and MDAs across the country.
Meanwhile, Adamu decried the abduction of Ekiti APC Chairman, Paul Omotosho, by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.
This was even as he prayed for the quick recovery of ailing Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.
Omotosho was kidnapped on Saturday evening along Agbado–Imesi-Ekiti Road in the Gbonyin Local Government Area of Ekiti State while driving to his hometown.
In what some sources alleged to be an ambush, the APC chairman was forced out of his Toyota Hilux and whisked away.
Akeredolu, on the other hand, has reportedly gone abroad on medical vacation.
Prior to his trip, the governor had handed power over to his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, in an acting capacity.
