Governors Loyal To Tinubu, Atiku Absent At Meeting With APC NWC

Governors of the All progressives congress (APC) met with its National working committee late last night in Abuja to discuss certain issues/crisis plaguing the party.

Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-rufai said that the governors had restated their support for Buhari, adding that his state of health had no issue with politics.

Quoting him;

"We are not worried about the development, it is not compulsory for the president to preside over every Federal Executive Council (FEC), that is why our constitution makes available the place of the Vice President”

El-rufai's statements are coming after Buhari's absence at the FEC meeting held on Wednesday. This was the 3rd time in a row that the president did not attend such an important meeting thus fueling rumors that his health was in a bad shape.

The petite Kaduna governor further stated;

"Mr. President is 74 years old; at that age, it is possible to have one ailment or the other, even I, at 57 take medication for one ailment or the other. Our prayer is that the president gets better but the reason he has a Vice President is because of a time like this, it may not be as a result of sickness that he did not attend FEC, he may have had other pressing issues to attend to."

"I have not had to chair every State Executive Council in Kaduna state because the deputy governor is there if I have other issues of greater priority to attend to. Muhammadu Buhari “We are not worried yet or have any reason to be worried but I call on every Nigerian to join all of us to pray for the improved health of the President. It has improved in the last few weeks since he came back and we will continue to pray for his improved health."
Speaking on matters discussed at the meeting, Elrufai said;

"We have committed to providing the NWC all the support that they need. We will also engage in fundraising from our donors, sympathizers of the APC to ensure that the national headquarters of the party and indeed all organs of the party have the wherewithal to continue with the difficult work they have been doing within the party.” “The joint meeting between the NWC and the governors also resolved that at our next meeting, we are going to look at the arrangements for the midterm convention and put in place the resources necessary to ensure that the convention

“The joint meeting between the NWC and the governors also resolved that at our next meeting, we are going to look at the arrangements for the midterm convention and put in place the resources necessary to ensure that the convention holds as required by our party. “The governors restate their loyalty to Mr. President, the Vice President and all leaders of our party; we enjoin Nigerians to continue to pray for the improved health of the President."

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
