The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has said that the comments, made by the wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari, were not meant to discredit the present administration.
Frank, in a statement, said the comments were meant to sound a note of caution for the betterment of Nigerians and the country at large.
He said the wife of the President spoke out the minds of many party men and women who felt sidelined in the present government.
He warned the opposition not to rejoice by misinterpreting the interview she granted the BBC Hausa Service.
“Mrs. Buhari deserves commendation because she is actually speaking the minds of not only the party members but Nigerians.
“What Mrs. Buhari has said is not different from what some of us have been saying that it is high time the President shakes up his cabinet and bring in people who understand the manifestoes of the party and could help the party deliver on its change mantra, especially, the economy of the country needs an urgent attention.
“Some of our leaders, like the Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki, have made this same observation in the past. They meant well for the administration and the country. I will also join them in appealing to the president to do the needful.
“Nigerian women in politics and other wives of president in the world have a lot to learn from what Mrs. Buhari has done. We should not forget in a hurry that this is what the former first lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, failed to do to her husband when few people hijacked his government and brought the government down.”
Frank called on the President to act fast and correct some of the abnormalities currently threatening the existence of the APC.
