Reports suggest that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is facing internal turmoil as President Bola Tinubu has reportedly rejected the demands of former governors for ministerial positions in his cabinet.

Instead, he is said to be focusing on appointing technocrats and professionals.

The dissolution of the Governing Boards of all Federal Government Parastatals, Agencies, Institutions, and Government-Owned Companies, except the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has led to former governors pushing for their protégés to be appointed.

However, Tinubu is reportedly being selective about their replacements and is not looking in the direction of former governors.

This has caused a rift within the northern APC, with some former governors becoming a liability to Tinubu and insisting on being appointed as ministers.

“There is a little crisis in the northern APC; they are becoming a liability to Tinubu. Most of the former governors want to be ministers because they feel they contributed to Tinubu’s electoral victory.

“Some of these leaders collected mobilization from Asiwaju but they now want to become ministers.

“As a result of that, they now want to become a distraction to the president by insisting that they should be appointed as ministers and also appointing people to the boards of Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs,” a former governor said.
