The All Progressives Congress (APC) said it has set up a mechanism for assessing the performances of President Muhammadu Buhari, in office to know whether or not the government is meeting its electoral promises to Nigerians.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, revealed this in a paper he presented at the 55th
Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), in Abuja on Monday, saying, an afvisory team to the chairman of
the party, made up of technocrats, will track how the government is faring and also make suggestions to the chairman in this regard.
He said to sustain the success his party achieved at the last general elections, the party must also not lose sight and forget those critical elements that brought it to power (Social Media, Youths, Women and other sectors) and must continue to engage them as it did during the election time.
According to him, constant rapport between lawmakers and the party will ensure that they key into the party’s agenda.
“We have given every one of our members in the national assembly a copy of our manifesto, so they will see what laws need to be passed to ensure the implementation of the manifesto. We encourage regular meetings between our members in the legislature and the executive, and between the party and the executive
“My party has also set up a mechanism for assessing, continuously, government’s performance and tracking whether or not the government is meeting its electoral promises. An Advisory team to the Chairman of the party, made up of technocrats, will track how the government is faring and also make suggestions to the chairman in this regard.
“The task of sustaining the gains of the last general elections have
been made easy by the realization that Nigerians have taken their
destiny in their own hands, and that absolute power resides in the
people. In the aftermath of the elections, therefore, parties must
ensure that there is no disconnect between them and the people. There must also be constant interaction between the government and the people.
“That is why my party, the APC, organized an induction course for its members in the National Assembly, so they – as representatives of the people – can have symbiotic relations between their party, that is between the party and the legislature; between the legislature and the executive, and between the party and the executive.”
