“I think Mrs. Buhari deserve 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 and I think they meant well for the administration and the country. I will also join them in appealing to the president to do the needful”, he said.
The APC spokesman further advised the opposition not to read negative meaning to the interview.
“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”, he added.
Frank urged President Bihari to correct some of the abnormalities currently threatening the existence of the APC as a party.
